Raffle funds support farmers

Cowra Red Cross Branch August meeting made final plans for the Father’s Day Raffles which were won by Frances of Woodstock and Mary Constance. Our thanks to Jolly Roger for its assistance with the prizes and to the community for their support.

The money raised will go to Red Cross “Let’s Talk” drought relief programme within the Western Region.

Having a presence at the Cowra Show in October was also in the planning stages and an offer of payment was received should we be able to have a table.

Our thanks to Jolly Roger for its assistance with the prizes.

President Sue

Our President and Secretary were able to share news of Annual Meetings at Morongla Creek and Grenfell, and President Sue was also able to bring us up to date with the extra history of Cowra Branch to pass on for the Council booklet.

Secretary Sue planned to attend the Red Cross Regional Advisory Board Conference in Dubbo at the end of August.

The meeting was followed by afternoon tea and a time to catch up with each other.

The next Red Cross meeting is set for Monday, September 10 at 2pm in the RSL Rooms, Brisbane Street. Visitors and new members are always very welcome to our meetings. Any queries about Cowra Red Cross to President Sue on 6342 1513, Secretary Sue on 0428 813 900 or to PO Box 262 Cowra, 2794.
