Have I got your interest yet?
There is so much to tell you of what the Women’s Auxiliary get up to, but I promise to keep it brief. (You will have to join us to find out more).
So far this year we have held our annual Easter, Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day raffles and other fundraising activities including our Bi-Annual Gala Auction, attended ANZAC Services and sold ANZAC badges, attended the Conference for the Central Council of RSL Women’s Auxiliary, had a bus trip to Camden, the Hindu Temple and Fuzzy Grape Winery; as well as our trip to the Bowral Tulip Festival.
In between fundraising events, we have had many wonderful invitations and visits to other Auxiliaries and Charity functions. Our monthly bus trips to Wollongong, The Guide Dogs, Blue Mountains, Mt Tomah, Sailing the Basin at Palm Beach and Yule-fest at Wisemans Ferry Inn have been a great joy.
The coming months will provide us with many more events and fundraising activities to look forward to.
October – Bus trip to Ettalong Beach
November – Bus trip to Castle Hill and Parklea; and Poppy Sale fundraising, Remembrance Day Service, and our Bi-annual Gala Auction
December – Christmas Lunch and the Christmas Hamper Raffles
If you would like to attend any of these events, or volunteer to support our fundraising activities, or if you are interested in joining the Women’s Auxiliary and sharing in the community spirit and service, please contact Colleen Towle on 4721 7290.
Our monthly meetings are held on the third Monday of the month at 10am in the Penrith RSL sub-Branch meeting room.
On a personal note, I would like to express my gratitude, thanks and appreciation to the ladies of the Women’s Auxiliary for their hard work and dedication in caring for others, their friendship and support, and for their commitment to the many activities we undertake.
