    Administrative history

    Founded in 1914, the Lennoxville Homemakers' Club at first devoted itself to the patriotic work of helping Canadian soldiers fighting in World War I. In 1921, the Club was renamed the Lennoxville Women's Institute and, like the other Women's Institutes of Canada, adopted the motto, 'For Home and Country' and the mandate of improving 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. An elected board works with various committees to organize monthly meetings and activities. The latter includes lectures, horticultural contests, school fairs, and fund-raising events for humanitarian organizations.
