They heard from a Learning for Life student Ryan. It was his first time talking in front of a crowd and he did exceptionally well. It is truly inspirational hearing from Ryan who now has commenced his Bachelor of Criminology degree straight from year 12. Ryan intends to join the police force in the future.

Back to School

Our September meeting theme was Back To School. We had secretary Sherril talk about our students we support through the Learning for Life program and asked members to become Pen Pals to them.

Julianne and Susan were some of the new Pen Pals to our students we support. Communication is just as important to the welfare of our students besides the funds we raise to support them. These ladies will be communicating with them for the following year.

Let the games begin! With the formal part of the meeting over some members took up the opportunity to play tunnel ball. A lot of fun and laughter to end the meeting.

 

 

20 years service

*

Our August meeting was a busy one starting with a presentation to one of our members Margaret for her 20 Years service. Margaret received a pin and Certificate of Appreciation from National Vice President Toni Thomas.

We then went on to listen, discuss and vote on 4 different Resolutions for all members not going to the National VIEW Convention at Tamworth in September.

 

 

2017 August 

The guest speaker after the resolutions were voted on was Joycelynn from Audio Clinic who gave a brief talk on hearing loss. Members were also able to ask questions regarding different issues including the ranges of hearing aids available

Joycelynn also had a portable hearing test unit and offered any members wishing to check on their hearing to come forward. This test was quick and efficient and many of our members took the opportunity to have a go. 

 

2017 July

Also in July our members along with some husbands enjoyed a High Tea at The 2 Blondes Café Springwood. Lots of laughter and great conversations around the table. A great time was had by all and the food was delicious.

 

 

At our July meeting we had Keith and Lynn from Blue Mountains East SES. It was a very informative talk about the history to modern times. To help promote the direct line if we need assistance, all members were given a magnet to take home with the SES direct line number 132500

 

Another July activity, our members supported "Share My Shoes".

After gathering all the shoes from members, they were then dropped off at one of the many locations. This is the second year The Smith Family have asked us to donate and it is a great way to clear out the shoe cupboard for a great cause. The donation box was full after placing all our contribution.
