The Wagga branch of the Country Women's Association has been saved from closure.
After a campaign to breath new life into the 97-year-old branch, between 50 and 60 people attended a meeting at the Wagga CWA rooms on Wednesday.
Branch member Denise Fergusson, who orchestrated the campaign to save the branch with Oura's Ann Adams, said she was "gobsmacked" by the response.
"There were so many people coming in. There were between 50 and 60 people," she said.
Mrs Fergusson said every executive position in the branch had been filled.
"We couldn't have asked for a better response," she said.
"We have a range of ages. One of our new office bearers is 24.
"It just makes you think that the community is right behind us. I'm just so please with the whole outcome."
One of the branch's newest members is Saba Nabi, who is already active in Wagga's multicultural, health and educational communities.
Dr Nabi, who is has a doctorate in biomedical science, said she had been hearing for a long time about the work of the CWA and it's contribution to the community.
She when she read that the branch was in danger of closing, Dr Nabi decided to attend the meeting.
"I'd never been to a CWA meeting before," Dr Nabi said.
While the meeting was well-attended and office-bearer positions were being filled, there was a shortage of volunteers when it came to a publicity officer.
"I'm active on social media, so I thought maybe I could help out," Dr Nabi said.
"I spoke to some of the other women and they said I should do it, so I did."
