Administrative history

The Albright United Church Women's Aid group was already conducting business according to financial records in 1934. (They were a group to be distinquished from an earlier Albright ladies group who were the original settlers wives and were from the west side - near the Gimli area.) Meetings had a strong devotional content and activities of the group included visiting the sick, contributing to the women's Missionary Society and also supporting the war effort through knitting, giving up war stamps, buying War Saving Certificates, making an Honor Roll quilt and contributions to the Red Cross. They also raisied money to be used to help pay the minister and support the upkeep of the manse and hall (which was also used as the church) through chicken suppers, ball tournaments, white elephant sales, bazaars, teas, and picnics. They had a Flower Committee, and a Baby Band Committee. In the early 1950s, they supported the Sunday School, contributed to the minister's salary, and the Hythe Rest Room. In July, 1953, a motion was passed that they disband and form a Community Club.
