Three members recently attended CWA North Coast Group’s annual conference. Chatsworth Island CWA was successful in bringing home two trophies from the conference. The trophies for the best publicity report, and best branch report. Marion White was elected as Group Cultural Officer.

The Branch will now go into recess for its Christmas break and will return again on February 2.

Members are reminded that they need to bring entries for the March Group Craft and Handicraft Day being held in Glenreagh to this meeting.

All ladies are welcome to attend this meeting at 10am in the Chatsworth Island Hall.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.
