Hello Ladies! Are you a woman interested in being part of a progressive, vibrant women’s organisation?
Are you looking to share friendship, support skill sharing like craft and cooking, and also assist in the community?
You may find the CWA is what you’re looking for.
The Country Women’s Association (CWA) is the largest organisation of women in Australia.
The South Australian body (SACWA) was formed in the 1920s, and provided friendship, support and an opportunity to give back to the community.
The organisation seems to be enjoying somewhat of a revival in the past 18 months, with younger working women attending meetings that are held in the evening instead of during the day.
The CWA is often thought of as a group of women who come together to socialise and share recipes, but it is much more than that, it is a forum to share knowledge, care about the past and take action for the future.
The women enjoy contributing and making a meaningful difference in their community whilst enjoying each other’s company.
The CWA was originally formed so people could connect with each other, and Jenny Dowling of Two Wells is looking at starting a branch in Two Wells for interested women in the district to do just that, connect with each other.
“We now have five branches with a younger membership and I am sure that this will be a good connection for women to just get together and share stuff” said Jenny.
If you would like more information on the CWA, or have an expression of interest in a possible future Two Wells branch, please contact Jenny Dowling on firstname.lastname@example.org
An information evening will be held in August if sufficient interest is shown.
You can also visit the CWA facebook page to gain more of an insight into what is going on in other Adelaide branches.
