The Cobar Branch of the Country Women’s Association (CWA) celebrated the 90th Anniversary of the founding of the Cobar branch with a luncheon on Saturday at the Services Club.
According to the Cobar branch publicity officer Kay Corbett, the branch was first formed on October 5, 1926 with a meeting at the School of Arts building.
“The CWA restrooms were built and opened in 1946 free of debt,” Ms Corbett advised.
“Mrs Ellen Knight was the president at that time and led the ladies in fundraising for the building as well as many charities in the town.”
Ms Corbett said at Saturday’s luncheon some of group’s historical records and photographs were on display as well as handicraft items produced by the members.
“The luncheon was cheerful and successful and a brief history of Cobar CWA was printed and given to visitors and guests.
“Mrs Kathleen O’Brien, our oldest member, cut the birthday cake.”
