Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia. Thank you for listening in.
Frances and I are in the sewing room again, with the material stacked on one side of the room and on the other, the finished costumes for an upcoming dance performance. It’s exciting to see the progress, week to week on the colourful tutus and jazz outfits.
This week, our conversations turned to my mother’s recollection of the Ladies’ Aid Society. As background, Ladies’ Aid Societies were formed during the American Civil War. Women worked tirelessly to provide supplies to soldiers on the battlefield and to care for sick and wounded soldiers. They raised money, sewed quilts and provided sanitary supplies to solders to stop the spread of disease. When the war was over, many Ladies’ Aid Societies continued their good work.
Today, my mother shares her memories of the Ladies’ Aid Society of her community that worked together in the 1930’s and 1940’s.
So put the kettle on and add to the discussion. Frances and I look forward to your insights on TeaToastTrivia.com.
I am your host Rebecca Budd and I’m looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
Thank you for joining Frances and me on Tea Toast and Trivia. One last thought – comes from Helen Keller:
“Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much”
