FOUR women are keeping a national institution alive in Mundaring in the hope of a younger generation taking up the mantle.
Mundaring Country Women’s Association has but four members remaining, but many friends in the community helped the long-standing quartet celebrate the branch’s recent 80th anniversary.
About 50 guests joined Diane Rudwick, Marj Moyle, Margaret Rudwick and Bid Bowen for the March 28 event at the CWA Centre.
Mrs Rudwick said in its heyday, the branch had more than 50 members and played an important role in WWII supporting the troops.
The group welcomes women with pre-school children to their meetings held on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the CWA Centre in Jacoby Street.
