Plenty to Celebrate at QCWA

QCWA - Our craft ladies busy making various items for donations

Our craft ladies busy making various items for donations

The centenary of the Queensland Country Women’s Association has seen branches all across Queensland commemorating this epic milestone in various ways.

The Tin Can Bay Branch, together with members of our community, celebrated at our Sconversation Day held in August. We were thrilled to receive a special gift from Sue Cardilini of a glass plate that she had decorated to honour the commitment made by Queensland Country Women to their communities for the last 100 years.

Many of our branch members assisted in catering at the very successful Flower Show held by the Local Ambulance Committee in early Octobert.  Elwyn, one of our members, won quite a few awards for her beautiful roses, well done Elywn!

For Senior’s Week, Wendy and Gabriella presented a Country Kitchens Interactive Showcase at the Tin Can Bay Library on  14 October. Following the talk attendees sampled lamb meatballs and pineapple and mango fruitcake, which they thoroughly enjoyed.

Di Simpson kindly donated a huge bag of different materials which will go towards making various items for those in need e.g. birthing kits. As a registered charitable organisation, we always welcome donations that assist us in any way.

Next month’s news article will focus on the huge number of items that have been made and/or donated by our wonderful and tireless Branch Members
