On Monday, 10th September 2012 Exeter CWA held their "Awareness Day".
Members were asked to attend a morning tea, bring a plate, a friend and wear their pearls!
Members attended bringing friends , some of whom were newly arrived neighbours.
Guests received gifts, many of our supporters were acknowledged and everyone enjoyed the morning tea and welcoming meeting chaired by our president, Rhondda Vanzella.
OJ Rushton put together a very funny musical rendition about Exeter Village which received a lot of laughs!
Nova Miller gave a very clever delivery on "Communication" which gave a lovely insight into her years growing up.
Exeter CWA has attracted a number of new members over the past few months with a few more new memberships expected after Monday's "Awareness Day".
A wonderful morning of friendship that certainly showcased just what Exeter CWA is all about.
ACWW Women Walk For The World
Monday, 14th May 2013
This is a major fundraising effort involving all member countries in the World.
The aims of this very special fundraising effort, are to raise the ACWW image, to promote ACWW and to increase the funds.
This is not an annual fundraiser. It is special for this year!!
We will meet at the Exeter Hall for a one hour meeting at 12.30pm
Then three options: YOUR CHOICE!
- Enjoy a ramble through the lovely property of “Whare Tua” at the corner of Yarwood Drive and then through a side gate onto the Drive
- Continue walking right through to the Exeter Studio restaurant for 3pm (http://www.exeterstudiorestaurant.com.au)
- Drive directly to Exeter Studio restaurant for 3pm – no walking on this day
Eon, the chef at Exeter Studio, has been incredibly generous to us, for this event.
Our Branch committee has decided to set the fee for the day at $15.00 which includes your walk (donation or sponsorship) and the afternoon tea. If you plan not to walk it is assumed you will still support the afternoon by paying the $15. Obviously if you raise more funds ….all the better for ACWW.
Please encourage your friends and family to enjoy this afternoon fundraiser with us.
"Japanese Lunch Bags"
On 23 April 2012, under the guidance of Pat de Corsie (Handicraft Officer), a number of Exeter CWA members learnt how to make a Japanese lunch bag.
Many members brought their own sewing machines and were ably taught, step by step how to create one of these fabulous bags.
It was a great chance to get together outside of the normal meeting time and many laughs were had - as usual!
Thanks so much to Pat for passing on her expertise!
