Wedding Bells – Our Own Publicity Secretary

Wedding bells were ringing this last Saturday as our own Ing Georgette Greene got married. The glowing bride had a two-day celebration – the reception was immediately after the well-attended lovely ceremony at Wesley Methodist Church, Lamina Sankoh Street in Freetown. She is now Mrs. Georgette Okyne as she got married to her namesake Mr. George Okyne.  As they proceeded down the steps of the church after the signing of the register, they were greeted with guests by the traditonal gumbe drumming. Our bride looked really happy as she danced to the traditional music.  The wedding reception took place downstairs in the church basement hall. The John Ezzidio Hall was beautifully decorated with lovely summer colours of gold, orange and beige.

SLWE Creating Waves

At the monthly meeting of the Saturday Club for Sierra Leone Women Engineers and prospective engineers, a very interesting session on wave motion and theory was underway on Saturday, 12 March 2016. It was a lively well attended event in which most of the four Secondary schools invited were represented. Ing Trudy Morgan introduced the session and asked if any of the girls had done the homework. Two girls remembered the homework and were able to explain it.
