Meetings were held every two weeks in members' homes. To raise money for charitable organizations, social activities, and building and maintaining the Sunniebend Hall, a variety of bazaars, whist drives and raffles were held by the group. In 1949 it became a local of the Farm Women's Union of Alberta (FWUA). The group folded in 1965.
