Our Branch President’s message
Dear Members and Friends,
Welcome everyone to 2021, I hope you have all enjoyed a break from all CWA branch activities over the festive season and you have all been able to recharge your batteries for a busy, active few months coming up.
It was most unfortunate for a lot of families, when Victoria suddenly closed borders on New Years Eve, it brought back reminders of last year when it was the bush fires. Many families were all ready to celebrate with friends and families whom they had not seen for many months, when news came through that the border would be closing so the visitors packed up and left our towns, once again devastating for all our small businesses.
Please support local businesses & Australian made industries as much as you can, I’m sure it will make a difference in the long run.
The first meeting for our branch is not until Friday February 19th but we do have something happening on the three Fridays prior to that date.
On Friday January 29th, member Tabitha Bilaniwskyj-Zarins will be giving a presentation about cyber security, to help us all protect ourselves from scammers & hackers on our phones, ipads, laptops & desktop computers. If you have any questions or queries about safety on any of your equipment, please make notes to ask Tabitha on the day.
On Fridays 5th & 12th February, member Anne will be showing us how to use a loom to make Ecuadorian Shilga bags, we just need one bag to enter in the competition, but they will make a wonderful keepsake for those who make one for themselves.
Yours in CWA friendship,
