The members of Yarrawonga Border Branch CWA invite you to celebrate the long awaited launch of Mothers.Daughters.Friends.
Once the “Untold Stories of the Women of Yarrawonga and Districts”, the stories of these remarkable women have now been told.
They are joyful celebrations of the achievements of these wonderful women who across the years have helped to shape the communities in which we live.
Daphne Burch, née Hayes is the oldest living contributor (currently in Benalla’s Cooinda Village). Her story tells of her childhood in Yarrawonga with her mother making sweets in a local shop. Her brother also helped to build the bridge at the time of construction of Lake Mulwala.
There are 123 stories written by families and friends and the women’s voices are very important to the telling of these stories.
Uplifting and inspirational, these women built our communities as they ran businesses, lived on farms, had children, loved music, played in dance bands, were creative, used their skills cooking and sewing to make a living.
