Raymond Terrace Branch Turns 100

Current and previous members of our branch together with visiting members from Morpeth East Maitland, Maitland, Nelson Bay, Morpeth, Mt Vincent, Williamtown/Medowie/Malabula and Mothers Union Executive helped to celebrate our 100th birthday on Tuesday 28th May.

We shared morning tea on arrival followed by a Eucharist led by Fr Steve Niland. Mothers Union Diocesan Chaplain, Reverend Nicole preached – sharing the story of a ‘well travelled’ Mothers Union badge which was recently passed on to her.

Our President Lorraine read our branch history, Glenda and Jacqui from the Windale MUGS led us in a version of ‘Jesus loves me’ with extra verses…there is so much talent in Mothers Union.

There was a display of memorabilia. We then had lunch and birthday cake made and decorated by Wilma McNeill.

We had hoped to have Branch Life Member, Joyce Wood, cut the cake but Joyce wasn’t able to be with us.

It was a very enjoyable day and we thank everyone who came and helped to make it a memorable day for Raymond Terrace Mothers Union.
