Gin Gin CWA members have plenty of passion and knowledge to share with the next generation and are calling for new members to establish the Junior CWA Young Ladies.
All young females in the Gin Gin area looking to form friendships and learn new skills are encouraged to join the group.
Gin Gin CWA president Pam Rebbeck said the foundation laid by past Gin Gin CWA members would continue to strengthen as young ladies joined the association.
She’s now encouraging girls of all backgrounds to sign up.
She said Junior CWA Young Ladies was open to girls from the age of eight years through to young women in their mid-20s.
The sessions would be held after school hours on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, at Gin Gin Youth Centre.
“Girls will be taught basic cooking and baking skills, along with an assortment of craft,” Pam said.
“We’ve held one session so far, and had a great turn out of five girls, and I expect more than 10 next week.
“The girls enjoyed making Christmas cards last week, and next week we will start Christmas baubles.”
Pam said the Junior CWA Young Ladies sessions were restarting in honour of the legacy left by late member Judith Manderson, who had previously held classes for young women in the Gin Gin community.
“We’ve had a bit of a recess since March this year, this was Judith’s legacy and we want to keep it going for her,” she said.
Pam said as most of the current members were 70 years of age and older, she hoped the next generation of women would take an interest in the local association.
The activities of each branch continue to be driven by the interests of the local members, and the unique circumstances in their locality and community.
Pam said Junior CWA Young Ladies activities ranged from education, cooking and craft competitions, workshops, fundraising and advocacy.
