Congratulations to Anne and Melissa on mak­ing it to the state fi­nals for their cook­ery en­tries. Good luck, we will all have our fin­gers crossed. In­for­ma­tion on next year’s com­pe­ti­tion will be an­nounced in the new year. Ev­ery­one is wel­come to en­ter, not just CWA mem­bers.

One of our mem­bers has also been very busy mak­ing cal­ico dolls for the Chil­dren’s hos­pi­tals. 60+ dolls have been made so far this year. Th­ese dolls are used by chil­dren to help rep­re­sent their own surg­eries and are dec­o­rated by the chil­dren, their fam­i­lies and some­times the doc­tors them­selves. If any­one has any cal­ico they would like to do­nate it would be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.

We are also cur­rently col­lect­ing ring pulls from tins/cans which are then used to cre­ate pros­thetic limbs for chil­dren. if you have some please con­tact Janet or Val, oth­er­wise please bring along to our next meet­ing. Thank you.

Our next meet­ing will be on Wed­nes­day May 11th from 10a.m. for morn­ing tea fol­lowed by our reg­u­lar meet­ing at 1p.m.

We meet at the Gal­ston Health & Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, cnr Glade and 17 Ar­ca­dia Road, Gal­ston. Vis­i­tors are most wel­come to at­tend.
