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
