CWA branches meet
DINGEE’S Robyn Brown was elected treasurer of the Country Women’s Association Bendigo Northern Group last week.
Delegates from the group’s six branches met in Campbells Forest Hall for the annual general meeting and group conference.
The evening was opened by Loddon Shire’s Inglewood Ward councillor Wendy Murphy.
Cr Murphy said it was appropriate the meeting was being held on International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
She congratulated CWA for its support of women and families.
Also attending the conference was CWA state vice-president Viviane Chemali.
During the conference, Robyn said last year’s conference had passed a resolution supporting the culling of kangaroos and it was pleasing to see the State Government had increased the quota for 2021.
Delegates elected Marilyn Tangey (Bendigo branch) group president with Leanne Mooney (Golden Night branch) secretary, Norma Wright (Bendigo branch) craft leader and Bev Sutherland (Bendigo branch) publicity officer.
