Keep up to date with what is happening around the clubs.
At Nepean Evening VIEW we are still holding our dinner meetings and we have enjoyed many interesting guest speakers. We have had to be creative in our fundraising because of social distancing and Covid restrictions. We have found online raffles work well. Some of our members are talented quilters and donated a beautiful quilt to raffle. This was very successful.
We held a virtual cake stall where members contributed the cost of the ingredients that would normally be used in the baking for the stall. We also provided our recipes to create a recipe book which members can then purchase; all proceeds to support our Learning for Life students.
At June's dinner meeting President Fran, presented our bubbly new member, Brooke, with her VIEW badge. At 24 years of age we think Brooke could possibly be the youngest VIEW member in Australia. We wish her many happy years in VIEW.
We hope this current lockdown is only two weeks. It has been good to meet in person again.
Marvelous Guide Dogs
Our wonderful guest speaker had us all going home to check our fences and think about a new addition to the family. Margot Stuckey from the Guide Dogs Association NSW/ACT, based in Glossodia, delighted us with photos and a video of the many guide dog puppies ...oh and she did tell us about the serious stuff too. The Association does an amazing job, helping so many people, both visually impaired and sighted.
In the photo below we have Barb modelling the Black Pepper VIEW scarf at our latest (delicious) dinner meeting.
Learning About VIEW
Our October meeting was another great dinner meeting. President Fran thanked everyone for their stationery contributions to the Learning for Life program.
Dolores Jelincic and Courtney Lamaro from The Smith Family talked to us about the Learning for Life Program, outlining how students are selected for the program and how The Smith family works with these students, their families and their schools, to keep them in the program.
We learned so much about the role of VIEW clubs in this important program.
