The McLennan Catholic Women’s League (CWL) held a special meeting at the McLennan Golden Age Club on May 22.

At that meeting, commemorative CWL pins marking the years of participation were presented to a few of its members, some in the forty and fifty year range.

Most notably, Pauline Gervais, who will celebrate her ninetieth birthday on June 7, received her 60-year pin from CWL Ground-McLennan diocesan president Irene Brassard.

To celebrate the occasion, G.P. Vanier graduating student Madeleine Jordan gave a short recital on the flute.
