Recently, the Tully Branch of QCWA had a visit from the State President, Sheila Campbell. The State President visited all QCWA Branches in the Far North Qld Division, from Cooktown to Tully and the Atherton Tablelands. 

The last time Sheila visited the Tully QCWA Hall was when it was reopened after Cyclone Yasi. The Hall suffered some major damage and was repaired and brought back to the wonderful building it is currently. Sheila was very impressed with the condition of the Hall and what a wonderful asset it is for the community. Recently, the car parking area in the grounds has been surfaced with road base, making driving and parking in wet weather much easier and a lot safer.

The Hall is used to host QCWA Meetings and functions, and it is available to the community and organisations to hire, at a very reasonable rate. It is fully air conditioned, has a commercial kitchen, and wheelchair access. The Tully QCWA Hall is located at 5 Plumb Street, and it is a great venue for workshops, meetings, classes, exhibitions, and occasions, such as a memorial or a family celebration. Please make enquiries to qcwatully@outlook.com. All money raised through hall hire goes back to the community and towards upkeep of the Hall.

The QCWA was established in 1922 and has 3400 Members throughout Queensland. Their vision is for women of Queensland to come together to support communities, celebrate their interests, and forge friendships in a respectful and caring environment. This is achieved by advocating and providing opportunities for women around education, health, and community, throughout every phase of a woman’s life. The QCWA is a very diverse organisation and caters for many interests. There is something there for everyone.

The Tully QCWA Branch meets on the first Monday of every month at the Hall, located at 5 Plumb Street.  New Members are always welcome.  Presently the Branch is running a Christmas Raffle (First prize $300) and are planning a stall at the Tully Street Christmas Party. 

Tully Branch served the morning tea at the Morning Melodies Performance in Tully on September 29. The winner of the raffle drawn at Morning Melodies was J. Simmonds, ticket Red 58D, and the 100-board winner drawn at Morning Melodies was Jamie, square 26. The winner of the 100-board drawn on October 5 was Kathy B, square 26.
