“It’s amazing what a good cup of tea can do for the soul” and “Just what I need is a nice refreshing Cuppa,” were just a few of the sentiments many patrons of the Grazing Down The Lachlan were voicing when they arrived at the last station of the event. Tired and some perhaps a little under the weather, were delighted to find that a good old ‘cuppa’ awaited them.
Four ladies from the CWA Forbes Evening Branch volunteered to serve good old fashioned cups of tea. They were even more surprised to learn that teapots with real tea leaves were being used, while they gathered to listen to some good music and discuss the day’s adventures along the Lachlan.
Part of the CWA values is to be involved with the community. Assisting with Grazing Down The Lachlan has been only one of many events the branch has been involved with recently. A group of 9 members assisted the Forbes PA & HA providing morning tea and lunch for judges and helpers at the recent show.
Recently, the annual Country of Study International Dinner was held where guests were treated to a feast of traditional Papua New Guinea foods cooked by Kim and Marc from The Van. Guest speaker Michael Walker entertained the guests talking about his experiences of walking the Kokoda Track with a group of Forbes men, while Karen Wright spoke about her experience of visiting the country as a tourist. A great night was had by all members and their guests.
