Our team here at the Rural Women’s Network are excitedly preparing for the weekend ahead and our road trip to Coolamon for the annual NSW Rural Women’s Gathering. The Committee have worked so hard and have put together a fantastic program with some great speakers (including a couple of Ministers), lots of diverse workshop choices and an extra special very rural Gathering Dinner on the Saturday evening at a village hall. You really don’t want to miss this special event… and there is still time if you want to come along and join us!
One of the highlights of the weekend will be the launch of the 2014 Hidden Treasures Honour Roll which recognises a large number of rural women doing valuable volunteer work. A congratulatory letter and copy of the Honour Roll which includes their personal stories will be distributed to all of this year’s Hidden Treasures and their nominators in the coming few days. The booklet will also be available to freely download from the Rural Women’s Network website at: www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/rwn/activities/hidden-treasures from Saturday evening. (This is not an ‘award’ but a special tribute to women across NSW).
While this is a media launch, all of the nominees and nominators are very welcome to attend as participants of the Coolamon Women’s Gathering and have until 4 pm today (Tuesday 9 September) to register for a day or the entire weekend. More information and registration details are available from the NSW Rural Women’s Gathering website.
We have two last minute full complimentary registrations available for the whole weekend – you just need to cover your own travel and accommodation costs. If you are interested contact Emma before 4pm today to secure a spot on 02 6391 3612
We heard that it could be cool in the Riverina this weekend so make sure you pack a woolly or two!
