 We are in the process of finding a new venue that will take a function for under 30, so until we can find a suitable meeting room, we continue to have informal meetings on the first of the month at NBC. If you are unable to attend on the first Wednesday of the month please send apology to Janette or Lorraine. Sadly Yagoona VIEW Club will be closing on 19 May, after 60 years. Note from one of our sponsored children, Hawraa: “Year 7 is challenging but also fun, I have caught up on all my work and doing so well in school. Thank you for contacting me. I wish you nothing but the best. From Hawraa. 

Do hope you’re all feeling safe and warm during this Covid Lockdown.

Attached is our latest newsletter and some “funnies” compliment of Lorraine! – enjoy.

Please be aware of possible changes because of Covid.

Best wishes

Hello ladies

I do hope  you’re all keeping well and safe.
Thanks to those who sent a few words about what they’re doing in this period of isolation; thanks too for the recipes!

We’ll put out another sheet and perhaps more recipes in a few weeks’ time, so those who haven’t done so yet, please do send along some news and/or a recipe. 
Meantime, keep safe,  Judy

Few lines for All of my dear Parramatta VIEW ladies.
    Love & Care from  Shobha, 16/7/2020
    When we understand others feelings and What they are going through...
     What they want and What their needs are  What they are missing in life...
     Without them saying a word   Feeling their feelings   Sharing their joy and grief...
    Caring for their well-being   Fulfilling their needs   Is True Love and Care
