For the first time since the end of World War II, The Country Women’s Association of Victoria Inc. will not hold a State Exhibition this year. We feel this decision is in the best interests of all, given the constantly changing nature of the covid-19 situation. Now we want to work towards making the 2021 Exhibition the biggest and best it can be – all CWA members are encouraged to get involved. The Ararat Sock Festival has also been cancelled for 2020, but will be held in 2021.
A competition for the Syme Cup for the Group Handcraft Entry will be held in 2020, with the theme ‘Sea, Shore and Shells’, so items perhaps already made by members of your CWA group will be judged, and the cup awarded. Members will then be able to enter those items as individual entries in the 2021 Exhibition. A separate information sheet and entry form for the Syme Cup competition has been emailed to Group Presidents. Members, please speak to your Group President if you would like to be involved. Entries close on 15/10/2020.
