The local organising committee for the next CWA of NSW State Conference, at the Bega Showground in May next year, recently held their third meeting in the Cobargo CWA Cottage. All eight CWA members of the organizing committee attended: Helen Galton OAM, Nelleke Gorton and Sue Hall from Bega CWA branch; Alison Jenkins from Pambula-Merimbula branch; Lynn Lawson from Cobargo branch; Robyn Wright OAM from Moruya branch; Vicki Hummel from Bermagui branch and Annette Kennewell from Tilba branch.
Helen as organizing committee President is coordinating and overseeing all planning aspects of the CWA State Conference. Lynn has printed business cards so we can promote the Conference to local businesses and our community. Alison and Robyn are working on finalizing the raffle prizes. The raffle tickets will be available to buy from your local CWA branch later this year.
Vicki is working on the entertainment and decorations for the conference dinner dance which will be a country-style bush dance. Nelleke our culinary expert, is working on catering including lunches and conference dinner. Sue is sourcing the conference goody bags which will promote the Far South Coast region to all visiting CWA members from throughout ACT and NSW. Annette is working on three CWA bus tours including Bega to Tathra; Bega to Central Tilba and Bermagui; and Bega to Pambula and Eden.
One exciting aspect of the CWA of NSW State Conference for our local community, is that the CWA displays will be open to the public. The best of the State for CWA Land Cookery and Handicraft will be on display during the Conference for locals to see. If you have ever wondered how to cook the best fruitcake, sponge, marmalade, chutney or relish, this Conference will have it all on show. Opening hours for CWA displays will be advertised closer to the Conference dates in May next year.
