Network wants more older women
A meeting to recruit new members for the Older Women's Network will be held on Wednesday, September 5, in the auditorium at the Woy Woy Leagues Club.
The meeting will be held from 10.15am to 10.30am.
"If you have recently retired or are looking for an interest please consider The Older Women's Network," said Network member Ms Enid Harrison.
"This is a network which you can access to find a group of women like yourself who are concerned with the rights, dignity and well-being of older women.
"They deal with problems and pleasures which affect older women by coming together and talking about how to learn living skills to make a happier life for themselves.
"They seek to find pleasure in everyday living and developing their interests.
"When a woman retires or becomes a widow later in life she loses the identity she had previously enjoyed.
"The aim for women in OWN is for development to find for herself a new identity, not to fade into invisibility, and to get out and about learning anew how to live fully.
"Our next monthly meeting will be discussing how we can do this, and if you are interested we would like you to attend."
For more information, telephone Heather McKenzie on 4342 2197.
