There’s more to this group
than just light-hearted fun
and a lot of laughs. Deep
and lasting friendships
have formed over the years
as women of all ages from
across the province have
bonded like sisters.
often found it difficult to fill a day while
their husbands were occupied with meet-ings
What would the wives do? Where would
they go? The common answer to those ques-tions
was shopping in the downtown core.
However, the intention was to have the
women socialize and develop camarade-rie.
One year, they hosted a women’s-only
breakout session after the main convention
breakfast. The group took part in crafting
and scrapbooking and other artistic activi-ties
that were easy to do in the hotel.
It was a start, but still not on par with
what their husbands were able to do.
The men enjoyed at least two social out-ings
during the year – before and after the
hectic road building season – for golfing
trips in the spring and fall. The women at-tempted
to follow suit, but the notion strug-gled
to gain traction because of the time of
year and family and work obligations.
“As women, we’re not just ‘extras.’
We’re actually a part of the business,” said
Duncan. “That meant we couldn’t take the
time off in the middle of the summer. We’re
not just the spouses; we are instrumental in
working in the business.”
