May 2023 Edition

Posted May 15, 2023 by WI Staff in Latest Issues

The handsome horses gracing our front cover for the month of May were snapped by Rosemary Savage, Roe Valley Executive Member/Aghanloo WI.  Our May magazine cover traditionally has an animal/farm theme, in celebration of Balmoral Show taking place this month – and Rosemary’s beautiful photo perfectly captures the spirit of the Show.
