    Administrative history

    The Zion Women’s Institute was established in the summer of 1914 at the home of Mrs. R.T. Edwards, located on the 6th Concession of Glenelg Township. Over the years, the Institute has contributed to its community through donations to the Durham and Centre Grey Hospitals. They have helped organizations such as the Salvation Army, the Cancer Society, the Save the Children Fund, and the Arthritis Society. They also financed scholarships awarded to local high school students pursuing continuing education in the field of nursing. They have also worked in conjunction with organizations such as the 4H Club and the Durham and Markdale Agricultural Societies. The Institute disbanded in 2005, at which time it became the Zion Friendship Group.
