Name of creator
The De Winton Chapter of the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire (I.O.D.E.) was organized in 1914 to gather women together for charitable projects. The I.O.D.E. is still active and holds monthly meetings. Chapters raise money to provide scholarships and bursaries for schools, buy equipment, furnishing and supplies for hospitals, schools, daycare and seniors centers. During World War I and II the group raised money by knitting and sewing. It established the Carberry cenotaph in 1921. When the local hospital was built in 1949, the I.O.D.E. began furnishing and maintaining the nursery. The group also helped in the Carberry Community Hall project. The I.O.D.E Federation itself was incorporated in 1901, founded by Mrs. Clark Murray from Montrçal, because she wanted to get British and Canadian women together in support of the Boer War efforts.
Records from have been presented to the Carberry Plains Archives in 1988 [Carberry Plains Museum] and in 1991, 1992, and 2001 by the [I.O.D.E].
