AROUND 60 flappers attended the high tea hosted by the Cloncurry Country Women’s Association on Saturday afternoon.
The ladies searched local wardrobes and the St Vincent De Paul’s op-shop to find the authentic ‘roaring 20s’ fashion to dress with elegance.
Attendee Robyn Jenkins was declared the best dressed to the classic theme, and Gillian Gardiner was awarded runner-up.
Branch vice-president Freda Pyke said CWA members relied on St Vincent De Paul’s for their costumes. “We support Vinnies because a lot of members work at Vinnies. Sister Lyn (Freestone) works at Vinnies.”
The branch’s international officer Judy March, who has traveled much of Asia, also gave a speech about the bond between women across the world.
“Women in the world, it doesn’t matter the situation...we still have the same bond and connection. Just a smile can make a difference,” she said.
“We all have the same hopes and aspirations for our children and families.”
