Picture: ROGER LOVELL Why not join us, says CWA ALICE CLARIDGE MAGRA Country Wom- en's Association is reach- ing out to ''the young mod- ern woman'', catering for their busy lifestyles, family obligations and their in- terests in supporting the community. The association, in the Derwent Valley, began in 1956, after CWA member- ship peaked state-wide with 203 branches and 6000 members in total in 1954. Despite drops in num- bers, Magra CWA con- tinues to flourish and wants new members. The longest serving local member Pauline Bryant said she loved being a member as much as she did nearly 40 years ago. ''When we were younger we used to hold more events at night but now we do a lot more of a day,'' Mrs Bryant said. The CWA has a strong tradition in crafts and home management but there has been a move away from participation in agricultural shows, exhi- bitions and displays in recent years and a turn towards community and charity work. ''Every branch is differ- ent, of course,'' said Magda CWA member, Barbara Morley. ''Lifestyles are different now. Many young women have to work, so they can't commit to meetings. But even if they can't come to all, we'd still love to have them join us. ''They can participate as much or as little as they would like.'' The association has been involved with many issues affecting rural communi- ties, including the pro- vision of better education and health services. ''All the major schools in the New Norfolk area have a bursary we provide each year,'' said Magra member Rose Hardwick. ''Our swimming safety program has become one of our biggest efforts. Chil- dren get 10 classes -- two a week over five weeks at the New Norfolk pool -- for a subsidised rate.'' The CWA offers catering services to local functions, but member Carol Hutton said cooking was not a prerequisite to joining. ''Each member has dif- ferent strengths they bring to the group,'' she said. The group also makes significant contributions the charities chosen by the Tasmanian head office of the CWA. ''If there is someone in need around the com- munity we will do our best to help them and raise funds, such as helping young sportsmen with their airfares to compete interstate or far away from home,'' said long-serving member Marie Oakley. ''We are very well sup- ported by the local com- munity; I think they have respect for us and the work we do.'' If you would like to join the CWA call 6231 3706.
