New rule in mix FORQCWA

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE QCWAmight sound like it is ruf­fling some feath­ers by al­low­ing packet cake mixes into its cook­ing com­pe­ti­tions.

But many QCWA mem­bers see it as mov­ing with the times.

The com­pe­ti­tions have been run­ning for 90 years and in many ways define the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Mulgildie branch pres­i­dent Joan Far­rell said it was all about en­cour­ag­ing the mod­ern woman to be part of the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

“We are try­ing to en­cour­age the mod­ern woman to take part in our cook­ing com­pe­ti­tions,” Mrs Far­rell said.

“There are busy mothers who may not have time to make cakes from scratch and, in any case, we all use packet cake mixes for our bases so there’s no prob­lem.

“This is all about mov­ing with the times. Now you don’t have to be a mem­ber to en­ter.”

The first mis­sion of the CWA was to look af­ter fam­i­lies and the or­gan­i­sa­tion has in­put in de­ci­sion mak­ing on ru­ral is­sues across the coun­try.
