Parkes Rural Women's Gathering 2012

You are invited to the Parkes Rural Women’s Gathering on the weekend of 12-14 October 2012 in Parkes to celebrate the 20th Rural Women’s Gathering.

The themes chosen for the gathering honour ‘reading’ and ‘farming’, are both highly relevant to the Parkes community, enjoying reciprocal support from the National Year of Reading and the Australian Year of the Farmer.

To highlight the reading theme they have engaged as their Special Guest Speaker, Jessica Rowe, author, TV presenter, wife and mother, a woman who has experienced many challenges in her personal life and has chosen to share them with others in her books.

Fifty workshops have already been organised for Saturday and Sunday, there will be market stalls upon registration on Friday until 9 pm, the gala dinner on Saturday night will have some fabulous entertainment, and there is much more in the pipeline yet to be announced.

So, as you can see Parkes have started planning for a full weekend of fun and plenty of opportunities to:

Reach - Engage - Achieve – Dream
