The First of Many......

I've had my first volunteering experience with the CWA......Australia Day found me up at 5:30am for a 6am start at the local church...helping serve up free breakfast to 60 or so lucky souls...sponsored by the local council, Anglican Church, Rotary and the CWA.....following the breakfast I also served free tea and coffee at the Australia Day festival in the local civic park from 5:30pm until 7:30....these old country girls really know how to look after the locals......I loved it !!

A few of the CWA ladies taking a quick break with a well earned cuppa..
Some attendees singing along with the band to Advance Australia Fair..

It really warms the heart to help out among the community...I was so glad to be a part of this lovely group of committed country women...there's so much I can learn from them all...kindness and generosity of spirit just for starters.


  1. The benefits of volunteering are well documented, so I won't list them here, I am sure you already know. I have been volunteering in my community for many, many years - even as a teen - and though there can be frustrations, the community and friends and connections I have made have made my life very full and happy. Happy volunteering.

    1. Thanks Katie, I hope I get as much satisfaction and joy as you have done.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful feel good morning volunteering....and getting to know your community. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane
