Fairbanks–On Monday, April 23, 2018, nearly 100 ladies of Women’s Igloo No. 8 attended the annual Women’s Roll Call Dinner. The event was open to members of Women’s Igloo No. 8 only and this year’s themed dinner was “Kentucky Derby, here we come!”.
Held at the Westmark Hotel, it was a festive event with many of the attendees winning door prizes and one lucky lady winning the name tag drawing consisting of a beautiful set of framed counted cross-stitch pieces. In keeping with the theme, there were origami jumping frog races at each table and Mint Juleps were available.
The ladies were invited to wear their best bonnet to the event for a “Derby Hat” contest and it was a race to the finish. After all the votes were tallied the winners were Roberta Greenlee, first place by a nose, Betsy Sharp, second and Stella Carpenter, third.
