On May 11, Crathes WRI held an open night for past and present members in Crathes Hall.

This was to commemmorate 84 years of the local rural, which has come to an end due to lack of members.

Photos and old records were on display for members to browse through and reminisce.

Nine members of the Kincardine Federation attended the evening and Hazel Robson, chairwoman of the Federation, presented long service certificates to 10 past and present members.

A buffet supper was served, followed by cake, which was cut by Emily Duguid and Heather Findlater, the present president.

Rosie Peter entertained by reading out two of her poems, one of which was the final farewell.

Memories and laughter were heard at the memorabilia table and round the hall.

A raffle was held and Heather finished the evening thanking all for coming and wished all a safe journey home.
