On Friday, July 30, the Tully, Silkwood, and Flying Fish Point Branches of the QCWA gathered at the Tully QCWA Hall to hold their Combined Annual General Meetings. The Chair of the AGMs was the Far North Division President, Meg Trimble, who travelled down from Cairns to attend. Each Branch elected their Office Bearers (i.e.: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and International Officer) for the next twelve months.
The elected Presidents are Pam Rowlins (Flying Fish Point Branch), Jean Rosendahl (Silkwood Branch), and Ellen Leech (Tully Branch).
Since 1922, QCWA has seen women from all over Queensland coming together for many varied reasons, including meeting new people, making new friends, learning new skills, and getting involved in the community. In doing so, the QCWA strives to improve the lives of people living in regional and rural parts of Qld. Through the QCWA, there is always a way for women to join in activities and feel connected to others.
During these busy times, it is harder to acquire new volunteers at the local level for organisations such as the QCWA, whilst, at the same time, the need for such community organisations is increasing. Please find below just a few examples of what the Tully, Silkwood, and Flying Fish Point branches of the QCWA achieve:
New members are always welcome, so if you think you would like to take part in any QCWA activities, please contact your local Branch, or the website: www.qcwa.org.au
