Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke expressed her appreciation for the enduring legacy of the Cowra CWA Branch during recent celebrations marking its 100th birthday.

“Whether it be fundraising, providing a network of support, lobbying for important causes, passing on their skills to others, or providing educational grants, the ladies of the CWA are invaluable members of the Cowra community,” Ms Cooke said at the birthday celebrations, held at the Cowra Bowling Club recently. “For a hundred years, the Cowra CWA Branch has been a cornerstone of support in and around the town; their involvement in all aspects of the community is second-to-none.

“These centenary celebrations mark a truly remarkable milestone and represent a long and valued history of dedication by members to enrich the lives of those in the community,” she said.

During her remarks, Ms Cooke emphasised the importance of community organisations like this in rural areas.

“Congratulations once again to all members of the Cowra CWA Branch; your importance within the community can never be overstated,” she said.
