Hosting Distinguished Visitors

Another duty Club members enjoyed and carried out with pride was greeting and entertaining distinguished visitors to Queen's.

In May of 1945, the Club arranged a luncheon for wives and guests of delegates attending the meetings of the Royal Society at Queen's at the Cataraqui Golf and Country Club. The wives of delegates at the Canadian American Relations Conference held at Queen's were guests of the Club.

 Other distinguished guests hosted by the FWC included

      Lady Tweedsmuir
      Lady Alexandra and her lady-in-waiting
      First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt (see framed photograph in the living room of 144 Albert St)
      Madame Bredo Stabel, wife of the Norwegian Ambassador
      Mrs. J. Lovink, wife of the Ambassador to the Netherlands
      Mrs. Walsh and Area Commandant Walsh
      Mrs. Simmons and Commandant Simmons, National Defence College
