Pakenham WI News - April 2012

Pakenham WI

April 12th 2012 - Perfect Support.
Three ladies from M&S lingerie department came and made their talk, about choosing the right sized bra, both informative and very amusing. Loraine bravely bared her chest to demonstrate that her bra was just SO not the right size!! Bridget won round one of our Hilda Philips in-house cup. She transformed a plain black bra into a peacock- feathered wonder! Daphne and Wendy came as guests and they shared with us a light hearted and relaxed evening. Thanks this month to Kay, Jean and Francis for providing and serving our refreshments.
