The Annual Branch Meeting of Can Assist Cootamundra was held following the regular monthly meeting on August 21.

President Bev Withers, in her annual report, thanked our kind community for its unstinting generosity of support and donations, as well as the many volunteers who give endlessly.

We supported a number of others’ events with catering, as well as holding some of our own.

The evening of Fun with the Phat Boyz, including an auction, was a highlight.

Brunch at the Saleyards continues to be a mainstay fundraiser for the group as well as other catering tasks such as at the Mind, Body and Soul two-day gathering at the Town Hall and the provision of lunch for Meals on Wheels volunteers in the Dickson Hall.

Members attending the meeting elected new Office Bearers for the coming year. The new Committee includes:

  • President: Bev Withers
  • Vice president: Marg Somers
  • Secretary: Gloria Harris
  • Assistant Secretary: Cathy Manwaring
  • Treasurer: Colleen Flynn
  • Catering: Robyn Harris,
  • Saleyards Catering: Mavis Bracken
  • WHS Officer: Glennys Randall.

A number of activities and events are on the agenda in coming months and we’ve got a special announcement about the catering trailer, (as seen in the Wattle Time Festival Parade).
