Port Dou­glas CWA branch cel­e­brates his­toric hon­our

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Port Dou­glas branch of the Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion was also hon­oured at the re­cent Women of Dou­glas un­veil­ing.

The Gazette re­ported ear­lier this month that the Moss­man branch of the CWA was one of six lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions or in­spi­ra­tional women to have a room at the Port Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Hall named in their hon­our.

The Port Dou­glas CWA branch - which has been a part of the com­mu­nity for more than 80 years - was hon­oured along­side the Moss­man branch at the un­veil­ing. Port Dou­glas CWA spokes­woman He­len Cooper said it was a priv­i­lege for the branch to be recog­nised for its com­mu­nity ef­forts and en­cour­aged more lo­cal women to join the club.

“We have reg­u­lar so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and a games af­ter­noon ev­ery Fri­day from 1-4pm and we wel­come new mem­bers,” she said.

Any­one in­ter­ested in know­ing more about the Port Dou­glas CWA can call 4099 1948.
