CWA gets a $5000 lift

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

THE an­nual State Cre­ative Arts Ex­hi­bi­tion will make its way to Kyabram on Au­gust 2 and 3, 2019.

And the funds to make it hap­pen are now avail­able, thanks to Cam­paspe Shire.

The CWA Goul­burn Val­ley West branch re­ceived a $5000 boost as part of the shire’s com­mu­nity grants pro­gram.

With CWA Vic­to­ria an­nounc­ing the state ex­hi­bi­tion will be held at the Kyabram Town Hall for the first time, prepa­ra­tions will now be­gin for the big day.

These CWA ex­hi­bi­tions are held an­nu­ally around the state, giv­ing groups and branches an op­por­tu­nity to show­case their part of Vic­to­ria.

The Goul­burn Val­ley was iden­ti­fied as this year’s tar­get re­gion and Kyabram’s Town Hall met all of the cri­te­ria to stage the event.

CWA Goul­burn Val­ley West pres­i­dent Lyn Trezise said there was a huge ex­pense in get­ting the ex­hi­bi­tion to the town hall.

“We are very grate­ful for the fund­ing be­cause it means a lot more of our mem­bers can at­tend. Many can’t go when it’s a long way from home,” she said.

“It also means more of our mem­bers can put items in the ex­hi­bi­tion for dis­play and judg­ing.

“Peo­ple from all over the state come to these ex­hi­bi­tions. It’s a great thing for our town for both lovers of the ex­hi­bi­tions and the busi­nesses that will ben­e­fit from hav­ing more peo­ple in town.”
