Ceduna CWA branch ready for table day

Final arrangements for the Far Western Group Country Women's Association table day were made as the Ceduna branch hosted its September meeting.

Tuesday's meeting at the Anglican Church Hall saw vice president Kath Dunn welcome six members, with apologies from Shirley Mahar, Dianne Thompson, Judy Gregory, Greta Whitelaw and Joyce Chandler.

Birthday sprays were made by Ms Chandler for Ms Whitelaw and Ms Gregory, however with both ladies absent, Ms Dunn delivered the birthday spray to Ms Whitelaw at the Senior Citizens Village and Ms Gregory will receive hers at a later date.

Arrangements were made for the table day, which will be hosted at the Ceduna RSL Hall on Tuesday, September 24.

The Ceduna and Streaky Bay branches will each have a table of handicrafts, homecrafts and floral cultural items judged.

There will be a display of handicrafts created over the years which will celebrate 90 years of the South Australian Country Women's Association, while Joy Stott's wonderful collection of aprons will also be displayed for all to view.

Doors will open to the public at 1.30pm and entry for the day is $5, which will include afternoon tea.

The trading table and raffle will take place during the afternoon and all are welcome to attend a day of CWA friendship, caring and sharing.

Claire Collins and Rita Carey judged the monthly competitions.

There were four entries in the bloom competition, with Doreen Denton's orchid deemed the most outstanding ahead of Kath Dunn and Claire Collins on 10 points and Jenny Skinner on nine.

Kath Dunn's machine-sewn apron made in the mid-1950s won the handicraft competition out of three entries, with Doreen Denton and Elaine Kloock on nine points.

Afternoon tea then brought the meeting to a close.
