Scrapbook History: Volunteer Women's Groups of Torbay

Creator(s): Torbay Museum

A Scrapbook History: Voluntary Women's Groups of Torbay, Newfoundland documents the history and contributions of voluntary women's groups in the community, through materials originally gathered by women volunteers as a Women's History Month (October) project during International Years of Volunteers 2001. From Brownies and Girl Guides to the Presentation Convent Sisters who called Torbay their home for many years, women volunteers have played, worked and prayed at a patchwork of activities that makes their organizations part of the fabric of a community that is not unlike a Torbay Anglican Church Women's quilt project.
