The guest speaker was Louise Grossfeldt, a Curator at Mogo Zoo and a primate husbandry specialist and conservationist.

On the following Wednesday 10th May Members and Friends of Mollymook VIEW Club travelled to Mogo Zoo for a first hand encounter with the many and varied species who call Mogo Zoo home. Members had a marvelous day which featured Giraffe feeding, a variety of exhibits, viewing of the white lion pride, a truly unique experience.

Thoughts on Anzac Day

My brother went to war in Vietnam

When he was only twenty-one

We went to Vietnam on holiday

Years later, just to have fun.

 

My brother saw horror and bloodshed

Since then he has nightmares at night

We had an interesting time

Taking in all the sights.

 

My brother was a gentle boy

But learnt to shoot and kill

We went from Saigon to Hanoi

Wonderful day to fill.

 

My brother went into a minefield one day

To rescue a man who’d been trapped

And we went cruising on Halong Bay

And were absolutely rapt.

 

My father was a prisoner of war

Ina stalag long ago.

But we now have German friends

Whom we’re very glad to know.

 

I love the story of Christmas Eve

Way back in World War One,

When the soldiers came together

Played soccer, shared cigarettes and rum.

 

Our common humanity should unite us,

In helping to shape our earth.

But we look for the things that divide us

Like colour and language and birth.

 

I hope for an end to conflict

Between religions and people and nations,

And that we all reach out to each other,

With kindness and love and patience.

 

No more hate, I know it’s a pipedream

But wouldn’t it be great if we were all

On the same team.

Zone Conference

13 May 2016

Zone NGO2 Councillor Fay Kastelein from Mollymook VIEW Club hosted the annual Church Service and conference for VIEW Clubs Australia on Friday 13th May 2016. Eight clubs from Sussex Inlet to Moruya were represented by 76 VIEW Members.

The Theme of the church service was ‘That’s what Friends are for’, a beautiful rendition of the theme was sung by the Acappella singers from the Milltones. Special guests were Shoalhaven Councillor Patricia White, standing in for Mayor Joanna Gash, National Councillor Pat McRae and Rev Tony Davies. Ulladulla Evening VIEW club member Maurene Hawkins was the organist.

The conference was held at the Dunn Lewis Centre beautifully decorated by Gayle Dunn and her team who prepared a delicious lunch. Guest speaker Sian Hulland from the Smith Family Learning for life centre in Nowra gave a power point presentation of the Learning for life program. Sian then introduced Mr Bill Muldoon and his student daughter Kirsten, who delighted the members with their story and how the Smith Family has helped them through adversity. Both Bill and Kirsten want to give back by volunteering for the Smith Family as a way of thanks.

National Vice President Gloria Walter travelled from Sydney and gave an insight into her role. Gloria was very impressed after listening to the eight Presidents give their reports of the excellent work the 8 clubs are doing as volunteers, especially with supporting 24 students throughout their education.
