QCWA meeting shows there's more to it than cooking, sewing

THE combined QCWA annual meeting today proved that there was much more to the community groups than cooking and sewing.

After a difficult year the Mount Larcom, Marmour, Raglan and Ambrose branches were keen to announce their final minutes for the 2014-15 financial year and their reports.

Each group noted the dedication and hard work put in by its members in the aftermath of Cyclone Marcia.

QCWA Raglan member Margaret Henderson had the crowd in fits of laughter as she told stories from the year that's gone by. 

The story of a couple of young folk asking some of their members for directions to the pub was a popular story.

Gladstone MP Glenn Butcher, Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers and deputy mayor Matt Burnett were all at the event.

He recognised Liz Cunningham's dedication to the QCWA branches.

"I understand the great work she did over 21 years as the state member, particularly with the CWA, so I just want to let everyone know that I fully anticipate to continue on with the same amount of work that Liz done with the community," he said.

It also marked the Mount Larcom QCWA's 93rd birthday.
