Joining the Dayboro CWA branch

Alison Taylor in action at the CWA.

By Alison Taylor

I became a member of Dayboro Branch in 1997. President of the Branch at that time was Mrs Jean Sellin and she invited me to attend, and that was the start of it all.

I have held various branch office bearer positions over the years, held a Division office bearer position for three years, joined State Cookery committee and was involved there for ten years, and now am on the State International Weekend Committee for the past four years, which I thoroughly enjoy.

Our branch currently has 15 members. We have a social get together once a month at a local restaurant, and we currently are having Craft mornings which are growing in popularity.

These are for members of the community to come along, have a cup of tea, and do their own pieces of craft. CWA members attend as well, of course.

We have a market stall each month, selling baking, plants, cookery books etc. We do a very small amount of catering when required. We will be Woolbombing the town in a couple of weeks – this was started several years ago and is just to brighten up the place over the winter months. In the past we have put it up at the end of April so that people who come to town to attend the Annual Dayboro Rodeo and Dayboro Day – a huge street ‘party’ where the main street is closed to traffic and entertainment and market stalls line the streets, and the Annual Agricultural Show which is held in July.

Unfortunately due to Covid these events haven’t happened for the past three years, but planning for the Show is going ahead. The woolbombing did go up however.
