    Administrative history

    The Hatley Women's Institute was organized in 1955. As with other Women's Institutes, whose motto is 'For Home and Country', this one was concerned with family in rural regions. The Hatley Centre Women's Institute is a member of the Stanstead County Women's Institutes, the Quebec Women's Institutes, and the Federated Women's Institutes of Canada. Delegates attend the annual meetings of these organizations. Locally, an elected board of directors worked with various committees (Agriculture, Education, Home Economics, National and International Relations, Publicity, Sunshine, Welfare and Health etc.) to organize monthly meetings and activities. The latter included lectures, school fairs, and fund raising events (bake sales, rummage sales, paper drives, plant sales, card parties, etc.) in support of the Canadian Red Cross Society, local schools and hospitals, and other worthy causes. As of 2002, the Hatley Centre Women's institute is still functioning.
