Meet Our 2023 Committee
On Monday 13th February, our Club returned for our first meeting of 2023. It was Election night of our new committee and was chaired by Madge Doust. It was an exciting night for us, as we have changed our venue and are now meeting at the Engadine RSL. We enjoyed a lovely meal, had our elections and played some games hosted by President Barb. Lots of laughs and prizes for the winners.
We wish our new committee all the best for the coming year.
On Tuesday 9th May, a group of our ladies went to Civic Cafe Engadine for a High Tea. We had a lovely morning, and to celebrate Mothers’ Day we were all given a beautiful little pink cake in its own box.
Celebrating Mother's Day
On Monday 8th May, our Club celebrated Mothers’ Day at our monthly meeting. President Barb once again decorated our tables beautifully with flowers and chocolate gifts for everyone.
The very talented young singer Elise McLennan entertained us with a huge variety of songs. It was a great, fun night.
Vale Dorothy 2023
It was with great sadness that, on Monday 8th May, fourteen of our members attended the funeral of a much loved member of our Club. Dorothy Edwards passed away on 23rd April 2023 at age 98. She had been a member of Engadine Evening VIEW for 27 years and served many of them on Committee. She will be sadly missed by us all.
Catching up with Friends
During March, a group of ten Members from our Club ( including 2 husbands), had an excellent lunch at the Embark Restaurant at Loftus TAFE.
As always, it was great food, including a nonalcoholic cocktail, handmade bread roll, entree, main, dessert, coffee and cheese plate (including handmade cheese crackers).
We all had a great day catching up with friends.

Many thanks to our President Barb, who organised another successful, fun night for Members and guests.
