Celebrating Volunteers at Craft Group’s Biggest Morning Tea in Hawks Nest Opinion by News Of The Area - Modern Media - June 16, 2021 DEAR News Of The Area, IT was Wednesday 25 May, the day for our craft groups’ Biggest Morning Tea in support of the Cancer Council, at the Hawks Nest Community Hall. The tables in their white gowns are under stress with goodies and the best china is out of hiding. The donation box is exploding. We have visiting members of three very vital local services; The Clinic Bus, The Rural Fire Service and the State Emergency Services have come to join us. The men and their tea cups and pinkies look a little awkward. All these services are run by volunteers and are on the job when we most need them. They look after us and as a group; we look after them in the way of providing financial assistance. Our crafty ladies put a lot of effort and talent into making up huge raffles prizes for Mother’s Day and Christmas. It goes without saying that the wonderful generosity of this community and the many visitors to our area makes all of this possible. A big thank you for your support. We all benefit, at some time, in the end. Wednesday craft meets from 9am till noon in the Community Hall, Hawks Nest. We do our own thing be it knitting, crocheting, embroidery and hand sewing and work on special projects together throughout the year. Help is at hand if you’re stuck or want to learn something new. We are good cooks too, nice morning teas are assured. Regards, Margaret, Wednesday Craft Group.
