Shirley Pringle was re-elected as Wudinna Country Women’s Association president at the group’s recent annual general meeting.

Rosemary Lymn was elected secretary, Jean Spence as treasurer and Mary Boylan took the position of handicraft officer. 

A review of the various meetings held during the last 12 months proved interesting and the June meeting was seen to be one of the best.

Members and friends met at noon, travelling to Kyancutta to share a lovely lunch at the Kyancutta Store. 

This was followed by a visit to the Kyancutta Ramblers Golf Course where Bet Fitzgerald, a past member of the golf club, brought with her a history book produced for the 50th celebration.

Bett Dubois read sections of the history which was interesting to hear, as many of the early members have left the district but they left a wonderful heritage. 

Sitting at the 18th hole the group enjoyed the magnificent scenery.

Members sat in the sun and remembered Jean Sampson, a member of the Warramboo CWA, who passed away in June. 

She was also a past member of the golf club and spent much time keeping it free of weeds.

A donation of $100 was made to the Pedal Prix Committee, while permission was given for the Lions Club to use the clubrooms for a skin cancer screening clinic.

It was agreed to meet again to prepare and plan the 2017/18 program.

The Wudinna group, established in 1936, also celebrated its 81st birthday this week in the clubrooms with catering by Alicia.

It was noted what the core values of CWA are across the state.

The organisation has 1873 members across 126 branches in 21 groups across South Australia from Ceduna to Mount Gambier, having been established in Burra in 1926 spread statewide in 1929.

SACWA was established to promote the welfare and conditions of life for women and children, to organise and support schemes for the benefit of community welfare, to encourage involvement in the community and encourage the enjoyment of creative activities, and to also give assistance wherever needed.
