MEMBERS of the community gathered at the Scone CWA Rooms on Friday to celebrate International Women's Day (IWD). 

More than 30 people attended a special luncheon with Where there's A Will (WTAW) Foundation's co-founder Pauline Carrigan addressing the crowd as guest speaker.

"Pauline was absolutely amazing," Scone CWA's Anne McPhee said.

"The CWA guests found Pauline a very engaging speaker.

"The message of the WTAW foundation is one that should be heard by every educator and parent.

"As usual, a delicious lunch was served by the CWA ladies at another successful gathering."

Mrs McPhee said the work of the CWA in Scone is a continuing effort.

"The branch has in the last months distributed approximately $18,000 to drought affected families across the area," she said.

"CWA of NSW is still providing $3,000 grants to farmers for personal expenses, whose primary income is derived from a farm income.

"Application forms are available through the CWA of NSW website."
