A Special Gathering of Women

Did you know that 2012 is the National Year of Reading?

Did you know that 2012 is also the National Year of the Farmer?

Of course you know that 2012 is the 20th anniversary of the NSW Rural Women’s Gatherings and that Parkes will be hosting that Gathering from October 12 to 14.

To capitalise on the two national celebrations, the Parkes Rural Women’s Gathering has chosen the themes reading and farming.

The annual gathering represents a wonderful opportunity to celebrate these themes.

Being the 20th anniversary of the gatherings, some 350 to 400 visitors are expected to come to Parkes and the gathering committee is very active in planning and pursuing some fabulous ideas for women.

Bookings are currently being confirmed for venues, entertainment, keynote speakers, workshops, market stalls, exhibitions, and much more.

Readers will be kept up to date with more information, such as a profile of major keynote speaker, Jessica Rowe.

In the meantime, check out the gathering’s website blog by going here.

For more information, or if you would like to become part of the organising committee, contact Lynn on 6863 4667 or Leigh on 6862 6000, or email

Perhaps you have an idea that you would like to share. If so, they’d love to hear from you.
