For 75 years, Paterson CWA members have worked hard to support their community with a range of initiatives.

Last month, the local branch marked its birthday with a special gathering at Maddie's at Bolwarra.

Life member Joan Kelly said the celebrations were well attended. "It was lovely day," she said.

"I think we had about 25 people or more."

Speaking on the Paterson CWA, Ms Kelly said the women were "a caring and lovely" group and encouraged people to consider joining.

"I'd been in CWA before and I thought it was a good way to meet people and it has been the best thing,"

"We help anyone who needs help."

The branch meets the third Thursday of the month in St Columba's Hall at 9.30am.
