December 2020  

Our November dinner meeting was our first meeting following the long break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In December, 45 members and guests enjoyed a ‘Christmas dinner’ and were entertained by our guest speaker, Phil Allan, who played his “Magical Hand Bells” for us, which included  Christmas melodies.  Phil played the bells and also chimes.

Christmas Dinner Meeting

At the dinner, President Ros, presented member Pamela with a Certificate of Appreciation for her many years of service to the Kuring-gai Evening VIEW Club.  Pamela has been on our committee for some 15 years, and has held the roles of President, Vice President, Program Officer and Assistant Secretary.  Well done, Pamela!

November 2018

Ten of our members went on a tour of the State Theatre in Sydney.  The State, which opened in June 1929, has some wonderful history and artworks.  The now 2035-seat theatre (originally many more) has had many additions and renovations over the years, yet still retains a definite 'return to a bygone era' appeal. 

Our group enjoyed all three levels of the theatre, walking about the stage and being given the theatre's history as we went.  Following the tour we all enjoyed a well-earned lunch at Cellinis in the Queen Victoria Building.

2018 July - Happy 51st Anniversary

In July, the Club celebrated it’s 51st Anniversary. 

There were 56 attendees to the Pymble Golf Club, 20 of whom were visitors. 

Valerie Lawson once again organised a beautiful Birthday cake and gorgeous rose towers for each table. 

Our guest speaker on the night was Emma Dunch, CEO of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra who entertained us with a delightful talk of her life as a local North Shore schoolgirl and beyond.  Emma kindly drew the raffle tickets and lucky door prizes, then cut the cake for dessert.

 

2018 JUNE

A day bus tour to historic Maitland and Morpeth was enjoyed by 20 club members and friends. 

A happy day's outing, which included guided tours, coffee breaks, lunch and time for shopping in Morpeth.

July 2018 - Bathurst Yulefest Dinner

Members of Ku-ring-gai Evening VIEW Club travelled to Bathurst for a Yulefest Dinner at historical Abercrombie House, built in the 1870’s by the Stewart family who were Bathurst pioneers.  Members enjoyed the festive evening at Abercrombie House.

 

  

2018 July - Parliament House

A rather special luncheon was held at Parliament House on 16th July celebrating  “Christmas in July”.  

There were 23 members and partners, and we had a room to ourselves, with a beautiful view over The Domain.  

Champagne, and some wonderful food was served in a most elegant setting.

2018 May

In May a group of 33 members and friends of our VIEW Club enjoyed a 6-day trip by coach to Bright and the Victorian High Country, organised by our Program Officer, Libby Clucas. 

The home base was the Ovens Valley Motor Inn, where we were looked after with warm beds; air-conditioned rooms; hot breakfasts and dinners with a huge fireplace. 

The trip included (among other things) talks and tastings at farmgate visits, the Milewa Cheese factory; Pumpkin Seed factory; Gapstead Winery; a Lavender farm and a Trout farm where they fished for trout. 

Also, an historic tour of Beechworth, and a picnic at the top of Mt Buffalo (Brrr!). 

The Autumn colours were at their very best.  All agreed that they were six full, fun and interesting days.
