Batemans Bay Hear from Laurena
The April meeting was held at the Catalina Country Club, when we had a visit from our National President Jan Roberts and also Marilynne Weston, a National Councillor from Canberra. As part of the meeting Jan spoke on upcoming events for VIEW, and gave a brief history of her time with VIEW. It was great to have Jan and Marilynne as our visitors.
After a delicious meal our guest speaker, Laurena Chai who is an Audiologist with Spec-savers gave us an interesting talk on hearing; the types of hearing loss and the importance of looking after our hearing.
Laurena also explained that there are a wide range of hearing aids now available for people with hearing loss. Laurena is available at Spec-Savers for people to have hearing tests

Successful 2018 for Batemans Bay Evening VIEW Club
The Batemans Bay Evening VIEW Club had a successful year in 2018 fundraising for The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program. Our main focus has been fundraising through our raffles, Pamper night auction, Bunnings BBQ’s and Soup and Sandwich Luncheon but we have also had our monthly meetings with guest speakers, trivia games and fun times.
This year we have been able to increase our sponsorship of students and also contribute more to other packs for the disadvantaged students. We have had guest speakers from the Council, Legacy, IRT and RFS. Our Soup and Sandwich Luncheon was a fun social event and the Pamper Action raised over $700. We have had two Bunnings BBQ’s and these are always well supported.
As well as guest speakers at our monthly meetings we celebrate any member’s birthdays in that month. The monthly meetings are held at the Catalina Country Club. Visitors and guests are always welcome to come and join everyone and enjoy an evening with women from all walks of life and listening to a great guest speaker. For all enquiries please contact Julie on 0408 215 553 or Jenny on 0429 726 630.
Batemans Bay Evening VIEW Club organised the famous Bunnings Sausage BBQ on Saturday 11 August as part of our fundraising activities for the year. This provides a great opportunity to interact with the public and talk about the VIEW Club and our aims and our support of the Learning for Life Program. This BBQ is a great fundraiser for all organisations that are involved.
The last meeting of the Batemans Bay Evening View Club was on Wednesday 8 August at the Catalina Country Club. After a delicious meal our guest speaker, Helen Quinn from IRT Sara Claydon Aged Care Facility at Ulladulla gave us an information talk on aged care facilities and the different levels of care offered. This was very interesting as it is a very complex issue for people when they are looking at care for themselves or a member of their family. Helen also had information leaflets for all members of the club in an information bag to take away and read if interested. At the conclusion of the talk Sara was presented with a small gift by Nancy Carter.
There was five members celebrating their birthday in August – Leslie Handley, Julie Teer, Robyn Doherty, Sharolyn Adams and Olive Ryrie. Leslie, Sharolyn and Olive were presented with a chocolate to celebrate by Nancy Carter
