The Widgelli-Wumbulgal's Country Women's Association branch may no longer meet but it's legacy will always be heard.
On Sunday, CWA members from around the district gathered for the official opening of a metallophone in CWA Park.
Widgelli-Wumbulgal's CWA branch was first opened in 1958 with six founding members before another 11 joined at the second meeting.
It has since closed with remaining members transferring to other branches.
After the branch's rooms were sold - it was decided to leave something for the community to remember Widgelli-Wumbulgal by.
"This was gifted to the community to put in CWA Park," Murrumbidgee-Lachlan CWA Group president Cheryl Mayberry said.
Mrs Mayberry said decided something should be put in CWA Park, Griffith's council was consulted and then the metallophone was decided upon.
"It's an acknowledgement of the good friendships and great community service by the branch and a lasting legacy," she said.
"It's something for the whole community to enjoy."
Irene Sargent has been a member of the CWA since 1962 and a member of the Widgelli-Wumbulgal for four years and was the first CWA member to test the new metallophone on Sunday.
"It's a good idea. It's something everyone can enjoy and it's different," Mrs Sargent said.
CWA state president Stephanie Stanhope said the organisation had 8000 members across the state and was one of the strongest support networks for country people.
She said the metallophone was marvelous addition which recognised Widgelli-Wumbulgal's contribution.
"The CWA only functions because of the support of the community," Ms Stanhope said.
"The ladies here have so much experience, one local here has gone through depression, drought and wars.
"When you have that support, your community is more resilient."
Ms Stanhope, who lost her home during the 2019/2020 bushfires has experienced the support the CWA provides the community firsthand.
"The CWA has a place for everyone, no matter your interests."
She said lately NSW's CWA had been taking the fight for their communities to political leaders.
"When members raise issues, we go to the governments of the day, they listen and we talk and we can help address issues faced by our communities," she said.
"It's grassroots advocacy, our members live in their communities, they know what is needed and if it's needed in one you can be sure it's needed somewhere else."
