Reunion Ladies Activities is derived of volunteer women interested in preserving our homemaking heritage. This group is associated with the Manitoba Threshermen's Reunion, and functions only during the four day festival.

The display includes a bake area where the aroma of freshly baked cinnamon rolls and biscuits pleases all. Some of the baking is done in woodstoves bringing memories to many. Baking is sold on site; through the festival only. In our kitchen one can view the skill of churning or "making cream into butter". The art of making laundry soap also takes place in our kitchen twice a day.

The craft display contains live demonstrations of carding and spinning, loom weaving, rug braiding and cloth, sewing on a treadle machine and handmade lace making. A "quilting bee" is ongoing with the finished quilt usually being raffled.

A daily vintage fashion show has proven to be extremely popular. The late afternoon presentation includes men's, women's and children's clothing from era 1800 to 1950.

One can cool off with delicious ice cream cones or browse through our souvenirs. On sale is homemade soap, craft and quilt directions, cookbooks, pens, mugs, etc.

Everyone is welcome to visit our display and in doing so will soon bring to mind the homemakers of yesteryear.
