Our Branch President’s message

To Members and Friends,

One more Merimbula Jazz Festival has been and gone. As you can see

from the photos Jan has downloaded, it was great fun as usual.

As is customary, we handed out small bags of home-made biscuits

to the children during the parade and our balloons were given to the

many children waiting at the finish.

Preparations for the Branch’s 80th Birthday celebration lunch

to be held on Wednesday 8 August at Club Sapphire are well under way.

Much work is still to be done, however I am positive we will have

everything finalised well before time. The first meeting of Pambula CWA

branch was held on Wednesday 10 August 1938 with eight (8) foundation

members present. A bank account was opened on 11 August to the

value of £1/9/3.

Following a request from McDonald’s Merimbula, our members

are happily knitting red and white beanies which will be sold on

McHappy  Day in November. All the proceeds will be donated

to Ronald McDonald House which helps families of seriously ill children.

We are holding an in-Branch Polish lunch with guest speakers

on Friday 20 July. Cost is $10.00 per person and all proceeds will be

forwarded to Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW)

through the International Committee of CWA.

Yours in CWA friendship, Marjorie MacKnight,

President Pambula-Merimbula Branch of CWA of NSW
