MISSION, MOTTO AND VALUES
THE GUILD’S MISSION
The Guild’s mission is to promote and protect the interests of war widows in NSW.
The Guild’s motto was adopted by the national Guild in 1949 at its third annual conference to set the mood, tone, harmony and the working together of the conference and the Guild.
