Save Biggenden QCWA
NEXT Thursday, July 24, the Biggenden QCWA Branch will hold its annual meeting. You may think “so what all organisations have an annual meeting”. But for the Biggenden group this meeting will decide whether it lives or dies.
At this stage there is only one financial member. The branch lost members due to moving away from the area.
To continue there needs to an executive and only financial members can vote.
If the executive positions are not filled then the Burnett Division president Bernice Maidment will hold a special meeting after the annual meeting to discuss the branch going into recess.
Do the people of Biggenden realise what this will mean – the doors to the building opened in the 1920s will be locked. No one will be have access to the building. Just where will all the other organisations and groups go to hold their functions for such a minimal rent? There are already out of town organisations promoting upcoming events.
So my challenge to the women of Biggenden and surrounds is to please come forward, roll up your sleeves and help continue the association’s objectives which are to improve the welfare and conditions of life and women and children in Australia.
