On the first Tuesday in November a group of well dressed ladies attended the Country Education Foundation (CEF) luncheon at the Cowra Golf Club to watch the Melbourne Cup on the large screen kindly donated for the day by Martins.

A big thank to them for the television which enabled everyone to have a clear view of the race.

The CEF Committee wish to thank everyone for their support which helped raise funds for the scholarships which help local students further their education either at secondary and tertiary levels.

Since the first year of CEF in Cowra close to $90,000 has been awarded to Cowra students in these scholarships. 

Cowra CEF grants are now open and will close on December 1. 

Grants are available to local youth who have lived and/or attended school in the region for the majority of their high school years. 

To apply for a grant, please visit www.cef.org.au/foundations/cowra/ or email Joan Hurst at jonieh@bigpond.com
