The Far Western Group of Country Women’s Association will hold its first council meeting for the year at Trangie on March 5.
The main handicraft competition will be held that day when each branch will enter eight articles for judging.
There is always some beautiful work entered and it is a pleasure for those of us without those skills to simply admire it.
Group Office bearers are mostly unchanged for this year except that Mrs Annette Earl is now the Handicraft Officer and Mrs Win Bolam is the Agricultural and Environmental Officer.
During 2018 the CWA raised funds for research into endometriosis.
My eyes have been opened into the prevalence of this complaint and how much pain it causes to affected women.
Entries in The Land cookery competition were judged at the November council meeting held in Brewarrina and winners will now compete at the State Annual Conference at Albury in May.
The guest speaker was Gemma Slack Smith who has opened a dental practice in Brewarrina.
She has very up to date equipment and her enthusiasm for the future was very infectious.
Our Representative to Executive, Dr Sally Torr, reported that the virtual Branch is proving very popular.
Our organisation certainly moves with the times and member numbers are now increasing.
Head Office has had to employ staff specially to cope with the distribution of donated drought funds.
Congratulations to those members who received recognition for their service to their communities.
Please keep praying for an end to this drought.
