Wrap of Queensland Country Women's Association events

GLEN Aplin Branch members continue to cater for Probus each month.

A working day was held and members covered and filled 16 shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.

The boxes were sent away to Samaritan's Purse.

We were very grateful to one of our members who generously gave a donation towards the freight cost.

After our meeting we held a Christmas handcraft workshop to raise funds to support sending our craft co-ordinator to Toowoomba for handcraft classes.

Hermitage Branch president, Rose Hill, will be our conference delegate and some members are planning to attend as observers.

It is lovely to see all the girls dressed to perfection. Christmas party to be held on December 1 is also a huge event in Karara.
