90th birthday cel­e­bra­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE... 50+ -

NINETY years of sup­port­ing women and chil­dren was cel­e­brated at the birthday party for the Queens­land Coun­try­Women As­so­ci­a­tion re­cently.

Last Satur­day the Gayn­dah QCWA branch held a morn­ing tea and fundraiser for the mile­stone.

Pres­i­dent Jan Rawl­ins told the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett Times the QCWA started in Gayn­dah in 1923, and will be cel­e­brat­ing its own 90th birthday next year.

The morn­ing tea raised money for the Rotary Lodge in Bund­aberg, an ac­com­mo­da­tion project for ru­ral pa­tients need­ing to stay in Bund­aberg for hospi­tal treat­ment.

“The ladies have made some things that we are sell­ing, and it’s all do­nated to the cause,” Mrs Rawl­ins said.

“If you have to go to hospi­tal you can stay at the lodge.

“It’s far cheaper and it’s a re­ally nice house.”
