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
