The great work and the impressive legacy created by the QCWA in Childers and across the state looks set to continue with the local branch receiving a recent boost to its numbers.
Long-serving Childers QCWA branch member Jan Taylor said locally the membership was at crisis point but recently a number of new women had joined, and some former members had returned.
“Our branch will be holding a meet and greet morning next Tuesday, August 18 at our Crescent Street headquarters,” Jan said.
“It's an opportunity for anyone interested in joining the group to attend and enjoy a social morning where a little bit about the role of the QCWA will be shared.”
Jan said local members enjoyed the social interaction of membership while the opportunity to be involved in programs of community assistance that are promoted by the QCWA is very rewarding.
She feels there is a lot of personal satisfaction in giving time to your community.
“Often it is not money our community needs but your time and effort. Just helping out by using skills that so many women have.”
For Jan and her fellow members, the QCWA has been a place to meet once a week for a few hours to share a natter, enjoy a cup of tea and to look at what projects they can undertake to assist the community.
The meet and greet will commence at 9.30am and morning tea will be provided. Anyone interested in attending the morning tea can RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
