About

We are an enthusiastic and friendly group of women, who love getting together for our monthly meetings in a beautiful location overlooking the ocean.

We are proud to sponsor three Learning for Life students with the money we raise at our events to raise donations for The Smith Family programs. 

We are always open to new members, so please get in touch today and come and see what VIEW is all about.

Narooma VIEW Club Learns about Seniors Rights

Information is so important, especially when seeking government services. That’s why those attending the Narooma VIEW Club Meeting on 25th August were so interested when listening to the address given by Rob Ingram, the South Coast Aged Care Systems Navigator for the Seniors Rights Service (www.seniorsrightsservice.org.au ). It’s a mouthful to say, but really, what Rob does is to ease the way for those needing aged care assistance.

Rob told those attending the meeting that the Service can help in three ways – legal (advice on issues and referrals); advocacy (information and support to people using, or seeking to access, in-home and residential aged care services) and information on a range of topics relating to ageing (e.g. Power of Attorney). He emphasised that seeking such advice or assistance should not be left too long, as the process may be lengthy. He also recommended those present should look at the Government’s My Aged Care portal (www.myagedcare.gov.au) and register if they feel it is appropriate.

Apparently, the Senior Rights ‘Navigator’ is part of a trial program arising from the results of the Aged Care Royal Commission but because it has been so successful, it will be an ongoing service.

Everyone at the meeting appreciated Rob’s address and went away feeling much better-informed regarding Seniors Rights (even if it did remind them about how old they are!).

2020 January

In late January 2020 the Narooma VIEW Club had its first meeting of the year.  It was a breakfast meeting, and all who attended enjoyed having a hot breakfast cooked for them.  The numbers were down somewhat, but that is quite understandable because of the bushfires in the region.  Everyone was pleased to be there, and we all had plenty of stories to tell about our experiences in these harsh and worrying times.

 

2019 June, 41st Anniversary

Jenny Schultz, the newest member helped Esme Hodges, our longest member, cut the cake.

Fifty members and friends attended the day, and enjoyed the speaker Mr John Lundy's talk on "The Life of an ACT Crown Prosecutor".

A good time was had by all.

We celebrated our 40thANNIVERSARY LUNCHEON on Friday 22ndJune, at the Narooma Golf Club. 95 members and guests attended the event and enjoyed a delicious lunch in the beautiful Bluewater Room at the Narooma Golf Club. There was lots of laughter, and chatting with friends both old and new while embracing the beautiful view over the ocean. 

Thank you to our dedicated President Glen Pisanos and the committee members for their tireless efforts and energy organizing such a large successful event. 

The Zone Councillor – Valerie Hobbs presented the badges to:

Congratulations to these members, these ladies also had the pleasure of cutting our birthday cake!

Lyn Gerstenberg Guest Speaker
We were delighted to have Lyn Gerstenberg as our Special Guest Speaker. Lyn is a former Vice President of the VIEW Club and gave us an inspiring and informative talk about her involvement with the VIEW Club and her Charity work.

 

 

Thank you VIEW members who travelled long distances and to other local clubs in our community to help us celebrate. There was lots of laughter and great conversations around all the tables. Everyone had a very good time!!

The Rhythm Hunters

The Rhythm Hunters (drummers) from Narooma High School, Narooma Primary School, Cobargo Public. School, Tilba Public School and Bodalla Public School conducted by Juanita Lowe provided our entertainment. 

What amazing talent these young people have; everyone had a very good time enjoying the articulated beat of the drums.
