Australia's Biggest Morning Tea raises close to $5,000

What a fantastic "Biggest Morning Tea" we had on Thursday 17 May. Thank you to everyone who attended and helped raise close to $5,000 for the Cancer Council which inlcuded a generous donation by the Ithacan Phianthropic Society. We would also like to thank Anna Vlass who, once again, did an amazing job organising this fundraising event.

This year, we invited guests to bring along their traditional handicrafts where they were displayed for all to admire. Some of our members brought along precious, family heirlooms, others brought handicrafts that they had proudly made themselves. The intricate detail of the works was indeed phenomenal and reminded us of a much simpler time in our history where women were taught to sew, crochet and embroider by their mothers and grandmothers. It was wonderful to talk to the owners and makers of these exquisite works and learn more about how they were created.
