Lithgow VIEW Club was formed in 1969.
We are an enthusiastic and friendly group of women, who love getting together with friends, for fun and friendship. Throughout the year, we invite guest speakers to share their insights on varying topics at our meetings. We also regularly get together on social outings such as daytime Mystery Coach Trips, Lunches, and Musical performances in Sydney.
But it’s not just fun and socialising! We are immensely proud of the eight Learning for Life students we sponsor with the money we raise at our events.
We are always open to new members, so please get in touch today and come and see what it’s all about.
- Meeting Day on 2nd Wednesday of the month at 11.00am
- at Lithgow Workies
