Deniliquin's Boobook CWA aims to hold monthly morning teas to raise money for the group and its meeting rooms in Harrison St.CASS SAVELLIS February 22, 2013 3:25am
The Boobook Country Women’s Association (CWA) is holding monthly morning tea fundraisers, beginning this Saturday at the CWA Rooms in Harrison St.
A Devonshire-style morning tea will run from 9.30am to 12.30pm, coinciding with the monthly Lions Community Market.
For a $5 entry fee you can enjoy a variety of the CWA’s famous country-style baked treats including freshly made scones with jam and cream.
There will also be a trading table with items such as second-hand books and crockery on offer.
Boobook CWA is aiming to raise enough money to pay for costs associated with their meeting rooms, which is about $3500 each year.
The women’s group was first established in 1932 and has been using the Harrison St rooms, located next to the Waring Gardens playground, for 21 years.
They hold regular meetings on the second Wednesday of each month at 7pm, with any interested ladies welcome to attend.
Craft afternoons are also held on the third Saturday of each month from 1pm to 4pm.
Boobook CWA will continue to run the morning teas alongside the Lions Community Market if they prove to be successful.
