CWA Pambula-Merimbula



Our Branch President’s message

To Members and Friends,

From its humble beginning on 10 August 1938

with eight foundation members,Pambula-Merimbula

branch celebrated its 80th birthday on 8 August

with a delicious luncheon at Club Sapphire,

Merimbula. As well as celebrating our birthday,

CWA State Vice President, Sally James,

awarded Life Membership to our much loved member,

Elizabeth Prosser, for her 55 years of outstanding

service. Elizabeth has taken part in all activities and

positions of office when nominated and is noted

for her friendliness, thoughtfulness and kindness

within the Pambula-Merimbula branch of CWA.

So far over 100 beanies have been knitted

for McHappy Day in November. After sewing

together the beanies, Coralie is now attaching

the McDonald’s emblem to each. Miriam is

making pom-poms and we will have a working bee

on Friday 7th of September in our rooms to make

more and sew them on.

Janet Maughan, Treasurer of Sapphire Connections,

will be our guest speaker at our next meeting on

Friday 17 August. Janet will let us know further details

of the Rural Women’s Gathering being held in

Merimbula 19-21 October this year. We are helping

by making biscuits to be included in each lunch pack.

On 21 September, our guest speaker will be

David Jones, acclaimed Australian Orchid specialist.

Yours in CWA friendship, Marjorie MacKnight,

President Pambula-Merimbula Branch of CWA of NSW
