The love of read­ing keeps QCWA strong

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

RES­I­DENTS’ love of read­ing has helped the Biggen­den QCWA Branch raise $1200 in the past year.

Vice pres­i­dent Ju­lia Young said what was to be a book sale on a Satur­day last Septem­ber con­tin­ued through­out the year.

“There had just been so many books do­nated to the branch we de­cided to keep it go­ing,” she said.

“The rooms are open every Wed­nes­day for craft and peo­ple can just pop in for a browse.”

At the branch’s re­cent an­nual meet­ing chaired by Bur­nett Di­vi­sion pres­i­dent Ta­mara Stephensen, Mrs Young pre­sented the an­nual re­port on be­half of pres­i­dent Wyn­some Wendt and said the branch had an­other suc­cess­ful year.

“Mem­bers catered for the di­vi­sional meet­ing held in Biggen­den last Oc­to­ber with 45 in at­ten­dance,” she said.

“The fol­low­ing day was our Rose Fes­ti­val and the rose show was held in the rooms.”

Mrs Young said other ac­tiv­i­ties through the past year in­cluded Christ­mas lunch, tombola and two com­pe­ti­tion days.

“In early May we in­vited Shirley Bald­win and An­drea Spence to show mem­bers the finer points in flo­ral art,” she said.

Next Thurs­day, the branch will hold its con­test day with a va­ri­ety of classes in cook­ery, knitting and cro­chet and flo­ral art.

GREAT YEAR: Biggen­den QCWA ex­ec­u­tive Mar­garet Strad­mann, Veron­ica Jensen and Ju­lia Young with Bur­nett Di­vi­sion pres­i­dent Ta­mara Stephensen.
