New CWA members boost Mitchell
FOUR new members at the Mitchell branch of the Queensland Country Women’s Association have helped to re-invigorate the close-knit group in the small town.
It is an exciting time for the branch, and president Patricia Kenafake said she was looking forward to a year of activities with the larger group.
“We held our meeting last Friday and there were 10 people who came along; we were able to sign up some new members, and some who have returned to us,” Ms Kenafake said.
“Now that we have more members, we can do more and help keep the town alive.
“We have our international morning tea coming up in May, our regular market day, and a monthly craft day and lunch with our regular meetings.”
While this wave of sign-ups did come at a branch meeting, Mrs Kenafake said Mitchell QCWA welcomed members all year round.
“It is always good to have new members, and the more we can do to keep them and encourage them to join, the better,” she said.
