A uniquely South Australian group, WAB has a statewide network.
The first branch was formed at Riverton in 1917 to meet the social and educational needs of women who were isolated and working with their families to establish farms and homes in rural areas.
Members are eagerly looking forward to the celebrations The Spirit of Rural Women to be held at WAB’s birthplace, Riverton, October 28 and 29.
We especially would like to make contact with former members or their families because we want to include them in the celebrations.
If there are any who are readers of your paper, we would really love to hear from them.
Contact person is Lynette Staude, 29 Naracoorte Road, Bordertown, phone 0427 970 396 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
WAB has a great tradition of linking rural women across the state and the world who have agriculture and rural life as their common bond.
It has been a member society of the worldwide organisation, Associated Country Women of the World, with its headquarters in London, UK, since 1948.
