Big CWA Theodore paint job

RESIDENTS and visitors to the Boulevarde in Theodore would have noticed that the CWA Hall has been given a new lease of life - having been painted inside and out.

The project was made possible due to the support of QGC - through its Sustainable Communities Fund - and the Theodore Recovers Trust Fund.

The Theodore CWA branch has been in continuous operation for 83 years and the original CWA Rest Rooms were erected in 1932 at a cost of 113 pounds.

The current hall in the Boulevard was opened on Saturday, February 21, 1953 and cost 3000 pounds. The land had been allocated to the CWA as trustees in 1946.

The hall is available for hire and the Theodore branch also offers accommodation for women and children in emergency situations. The branch supports community events - including the local show - and assists with catering for the HACC centre.

In recent times, the CWA has experienced a decline in membership. The CWA in Queensland is currently conducting a membership drive to mark its 90th anniversary and new members and ideas are welcome. The painting has given the hall a much-needed lift.

Everyone is welcome at Theodore CWA to celebrate and inspect the hall next Tuesday from 10am.
