Forbes CWA Evening Branch: Members of the CWA have been busy throughout the month of June selling raffle tickets at the Forbes Services Memorial Club to raise money for the CWA so they can assist others in the community who just need a little bit of a helping hand. Funds raised will be directed toward supporting local women and children to make their lives a little better and let them know they are not alone when doing it tough. The Forbes CWA Evening Branch would like to thank the Forbes Services Memorial Club for their efforts through the Community Chest Program to help local community organisations raise funds for their particular organisations and giving time for the CWA to participate in this fundraising activity.
Boys to the Bush Information Evening: Will be held on Wednesday 7th August at 6.30pm at the Forbes Inn. Boys to the Bush has helped many young disengaged boys connect with each other and develop bonds with strong male role models and mentors. Boys to the Bush gets boys back to basics including camping, fishing and cooking whilst learning social and hands on and life skills along the way. The purpose of this evening is to share with the local community and other like-minded people, the great work being achieved, and the benefits to all who participate in Boys to the Bush. Anyone wishing to participate in this evening is encouraged to attend. Please RSVP to Cassandra Tyack on 0417 426 973.
