Outgoing president of the Woman's Club of St Andrew, Jeanne Watson, pulled out an almost capacity crowd for the final meeting in her two-year tenure as head of that prestigious group of women, yesterday.

Headed by Lady Allen, wife of Governor General Sir Patrick Allen, and some members of the diplomatic corps, the monthly luncheon took place at Golden Gate Restaurant in Northside Plaza, Liguanea. Guest speaker was Ambassador Arthur Thompson, and in celebration of Jamaica's 50th year of Independence, there were some local and international items of craft on display.

Craft items made by the Mona Baptist Church's Healing, and Empowerment with Love and Prayer Ministry were also on sale. Proceeds will help members of the community in need of education and other services. The group is now in search of someone to assist with its literacy unit. There were also pieces of pottery on display.

Mrs Watson thanked the membership for braving the rain to attend the luncheon and for their help in making her tenure a successful one. She pledged continued support of all future activities and to continue working with the new administration when it is elected next month.
