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 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.
