100 Years Of ‘Sconversation’

The Queensland Country Women’s Association (QCWA) of Proserpine is celebrating 100 years this July and, to coincide with their big centenary, they are hosting one of their famous Devonshire Teas in August.

The passionate group of homebakers and conversation makers are looking forward to offering freshly baked scones to their guests and serving steaming pots of tea using their colourful teapot collection.

“Grab your buddy, get a group together and start a "sconversation" at our

Devonshire Tea morning!” said QCWA Proserpine Secretary, Kerrie Southee.

“We’ve got some beautiful tea pots that we’ve collected over the years and of course the scones are all home baked.”

While Kerrie is thrilled the QCWA Proserpine is celebrating 100 years this year, she is also eager to use this important milestone to invigorate the group and encourage new members.

“We need your support to keep going for another 100 years!” she explains.

“Without new members the whole thing would fail and that would be terrible.”

Everyone is welcome to come along to the Morning Tea, which is due to be held at the QCWA Hall, 4 Faust Street, Proserpine on Friday, August 11.

Guests can either drop in and grab a takeaway on the day or sit down and enjoy the ‘sconversation’.
