Biographical history

The Brompton Road Women's Institute was founded in 1924. Like the other Women's Institutes of Canada, whose motto is 'For Home and Country', this one is concerned with family life in rural regions. It is a member of the Sherbrooke County Women's Institutes, the Quebec Women's Institutes, and the Federated Women's Institutes of Canada. As well, it organizes activities jointly with Macdonald College in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue and the Brompton Road Musical and Social Association. Its programming focuses on the education of mothers and rural women, on the health and welfare of children, the preservation of national traditions, and the development of patriotism. A committee of three members is elected to organize the various activities and the monthly meetings. The Brompton Road Women's Institute was disbanded in 1998.
