WISH (WI Scavenger Hunt): Just Having Fun for our 125th


In 2022, to celebrate 125 years of the WI movement, WISH was created. Clues were revealed throughout the year and WI Branches from across the Province of Ontario formed teams & joined in on this fun scavenger hunt sharing their photos and stories as they completed each of the 6 clues. The teams of 4 had to have at least one WI member and one non-WI member. The clue was sent at the first Wednesday of every second month and needed to be completed by the end of that month. The summary of the clues to date are: Feb - Find one of the WI plaques, halls or projects near you. Apr - Find a bucket of LEGOS , then build something that your Team feels represents “WI”. Go wherever your imagination takes you. (currently being judged,so not opened to public)
