Helen Davidson

Quota International of Weyburn, SK

Helen Davidson joined Quota International of Weyburn when our club was chartered in 1954, and she has been a loyal member for more than 51 years. She has served as our club’s president and vice president, and she has volunteered for many committees. Helen still attends Quota meetings, and she takes part in special events.

For many years, Helen was the official organist for the Weyburn club’s annual Quota Carol Festival and the director of the club’s “Quota choir.” Though she is unable to do that now, she still attends the festival and sings. And she provides us with her musical expertise and advice.

During her time in Quota, Helen discovered she had a penchant for clowning. She and fellow club member Isabelle Butters were renowned for their humor and the skits and plays that they wrote and performed at various functions. A friend, who thought she knew Helen and Isabelle well, said it was a surprise when they were so hilarious. She previously knew them only as serious women who were “strictly business.”

Outside of Quota, Helen has been a lifelong member of Calvary Baptist Church and their volunteer organist and choir director for more than 57 years. Helen also taught music in Weyburn, worked with the Music Festival Association, and has shared her gift of music with the whole community.

Helen has many wonderful Quota memories; she particularly enjoyed attending district conferences and international conventions, and she fondly remembers the Denver convention. Above all, she cherishes the memories of the friendships made through Quota.
