2021 Camden Haven VIEW Club Committee
2021 Christmas In July
Our Camden Haven Day VIEW Club had a great time celebrating Christmas in July at Club North Haven on July 26.
We all enjoyed a scrumptious roast dinner, some Christmas pudding, a couple of Christmas games with presents for everyone, and lots of fun and laughter. We also had a raffle to raise more funds for our Learning for Life students.
Presents for Everyone
The Guest Speaker for our July meeting was Aged Crime Prevention Officer for the mid north coast, Senior Constable Ruth Handley.
Ruth shared some important information about how we can improve our personal safety at home as well as in the community. We also learnt how to recognise scams and the importance of sharing any scam experiences to help prevent others from being misled as well.
We all received a copy of The Little Black Book of Scams which is a pocket book guide on how to spot, avoid and protect yourself against scams
2021 June Luncheon
Margret Meagher, the Project Director of Hello Koalas, was the guest speaker at our June Luncheon meeting. It was very interesting to hear the story behind all the beautiful koala sculptures we see around Port Macquarie, and also to learn that soon we will have a Big Koala!
New Member Welcomed
Camden Haven Day VIEW Club welcomed new member Maureen to our club at our June luncheon meeting. It is exciting to see our club growing with several new members joining us already this year.
May 2021 Movie and Lunch
On May 28 we watched June Again at the beautiful historic Laurieton Plaza Theatre. Following this members enjoyed lunch together at the Village Cafe in Laurieton.
Our club believes in supporting local businesses whenever we can. This outing to the theatre and lunch had been planned for March, but unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the floods, which had a devastating impact on our Camden Haven Community.
It is wonderful to have this lovely cafe up and running again, and we all enjoyed the delicious food and delightful company. Members also enjoyed some birthday cake to celebrate our hard working secretary, Helen.
Cruising down the Hastings River
On April 29 members enjoyed a lovely day out cruising on the beautiful Hasting River. We enjoyed a relaxing time together getting to know each other a little better.
It was very interesting to see where the floods had impacted our beautiful city of Port Macquarie, and good to see how most areas have been cleaned up already.
Lovely to welcome two new members to our club at our April Luncheon meeting on Monday.
President Bev presented Lesley and Robyn with their badges and a VIEW club welcome pack.

International Womens Day 2021
Looking pretty in purple, fifteen ladies from our Camden Have Day VIEW club attended an International Women’s Day Lunch at the Golden Inn in Laurieton on March 2. The food was delicious and the company delightful. We raised $64 towards the sponsorship of our Learning for Life students through a raffle. We all had a most enjoyable time together.
We chose to wear purple because purple is the colour of loyalty, constancy to purpose, and unswerving steadfastness to a cause. It is also the colour of dignity and self-respect and signifies bipartisanship.
We wanted to remind ourselves that International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate women’s achievements and to consider how we can make a difference by raising awareness, influencing behaviour, reinforcing commitment, and challenging ourselves and others to make our world a better place - particularly for women, and for the disadvantaged children we sponsor through the Smith Family’s Learning for Life Thank you

Our club was privileged to enjoy Lee and Joe Maguire's exquisite presentation of Tai Chi and a Fan Dance at our AGM on February 15. They also shared interesting information about the history of fan dancing and how fans had once been used as a weapon!!

Christmas in December 2020
Members enjoyed getting together for their Christmas Party at Laurieton United Services Club on Monday, 7th December. The food was delicious, and several ladies went home with fantastic lucky door prizes. The raffle prizes were awesome as well.
Our brains were challenged as we endeavoured to answer quiz questions about Christmas, and the game Celebrity Heads also provided fun and laughter.
It has been a difficult year with all the Covid 19 restrictions, but it was great to end the year on a positive note spending time together connecting and having fun.
Enjoying Christmas Cheer
Picnic in November 2020
A few of our club members and partners enjoyed a relaxing picnic at Lake Cathie Foreshore Reserve on Monday, November 23.
The weather turned out to be much more pleasant than anticipated. A lovely cooling breeze and delightful company ensured we enjoyed our time together.
October 2020 Movie Day Out
On Tuesday, October 27, we had a great day out at the Movies. Seventeen ladies enjoyed watching Never Too Late at the lovely Laurieton Plaza Theatre.
The movie had a great story line and we all had a good laugh at some very funny scenes. Following the movie, most of the group strolled across the road to the Village Cafe and had a yummy lunch together. It was so good to venture out and spend time together again.
Looking forward to our next outing, which will be a picnic in the park at Lake Cathie Forshore Reserve.
