Monthly Cuppa Helps Unite the Region

Article excerpt

LAST week more than 30 locals and visitors attended the May Community Cuppa, with Nelson Parks from the Public Trustee's office in Maryborough giving a talk on the importance of making a valid will and appointing a power of attorney.

The session was enormously successful and lots of information was covered and discussed and leaflets and handouts supplied to everyone attending.

Mr Parks will return in the near future for more personalised appointments with residents who require more in-depth assistance.

The Community Cuppa is organised by the Widgee Community Complex for residents to discuss topics of local or major concern, to catch up on regional news and activities and share a morning cuppa with friends and neighbours.

Held on the last Thursday of the month the event is free but a gold coin donation to cover costs is appreciated.

The next Community Cuppa will be held on Thursday, June 28. Inquiries Eveline 5484 0053.

The club is open to anyone interested in taking up this age-old art, born from a necessity in centuries past to become a very popular and fulfilling hobby in current times.

Play begins at 9am in the Memorial Hall with a break for a cuppa about 10.

Craft Group

THIS week's general meeting was quickly dealt with and the date set for the annual general meeting is Wednesday, July 4.

The AGM begins at 9.30am and will be chaired by life member Maureen Charlton.

The members were then able to venture into the final outcome of last month's cancer morning tea, with final figures putting the amount at more than $7250 which is the highest sum raised by the group thus far.

Putting their heart and soul into these morning teas is nothing new for members of the Widgee Craft Group and they were elated when advised of the results. …
