October 15 was the United Nations International Day of Rural Women and the Associated Country women of the World are launching “tea time” to help recognize rural women’s roles in supporting their communities and to celebrate rural women.
The local chapter of the Women’s Institute is working in conjunction with the Heffley Creek Community Recreation Association and has created a local “tea time” day to celebrate rural women which will be held on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 from 1-3 pm at the Heffley Creek Hall.
“Tea time” food and drinks will be available by donation and all proceeds will go towards the needs of rural women (through the Overlander Women’s Institute).
This “tea time” is a chance for women to gather, reminisce and have fun. Bring artifacts (an old coat, blanket, etc) and a story and come share in the day.
