The South Australian Country Women’s Association Inc (SACWA) Victor Harbor Evening Branch will be here at the Victor Harbor Farmers Market Saturday 12th September 8am-12pm. They are all about friendship, learning new skills & helping our local community and meet 2nd Wednesday each month @ 7.30pm, CWA Hall.
The SACWA has been serving the community since 1929. They are not for profit, non party political and non sectarian. The organisation is made up of volunteers who work to promote the welfare and conditions of life for women and children, of all ages, whether in the city or country.
Their slogan is ‘Sharing And Caring With Action’. Sharing involves service and the giving of time, talents, efforts and finance. What is given in service is the road to what is gained personally. Caring involves friendship, tolerance and understanding of others.
The provision of welfare is important to SACWA, and they feel that social issues need constant monitoring and lobbying at local, state and federal levels. They also believe that education is continuous, heritage skills and history are worth preserving and leisure activities enhance the quality of life.
