New CWA mem­bers boost Mitchell

The Western Star - - NEWS -

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.
