Holding out for CWA branch growth
FOUR women are keeping a national institution alive in Mundaring in the hope of a younger generation taking up the mantle.
Mundaring Country Women’s Association has but four members remaining, but many friends in the community helped the long-standing quartet celebrate the branch’s recent 80th anniversary.
About 50 guests joined Diane Rudwick, Marj Moyle, Margaret Rudwick and Bid Bowen for the March 28 event at the CWA Centre. CWA members Bid Bowen, Margaret Rudwick, Marj Moyle and Diane Rudwick in front of their guests.
Mrs Rudwick said in its heyday the branch had more than 50 members and played an important role supporting troops in World War II.
The group meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the CWA Centre in Jacoby Street.
