About

Arana VIEW Club was formed in 1997.

We currently sponsor 14 Learning for life students. We hold regular sausage sizzles at our local Bunnings store and have a “Make, Bake and Grow” table at our March, June, August and November meetings to raise funds for our Smith Family Learning for Life students. We also have social activities each month, including movie and coffee mornings, or trips to different venues.

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

                                                                        Arana's Committee for 2020                                           

                                                              

                      Arana View Club 2020

Our year started out well with our AGM in February. All positions were filled, which was wonderful and we were ready for a well panned and busy year. At our March meeting we had our first Make, Bake and Grow table for the year, once again it was full of wonderful items to purchase. Our guest speaker was Caylie Jeffrey, author of the book “Under the Lino”, which describes her experiences of renovating the worst house in the street. The discoveries they made under the lino sent them on a search they never expected.

                       

 

Some members attended Parliament house for high tea.

 

 

 Also, two of our ladies attended the Governor’s function to celebrate 60 years of VIEW in March.

 

                             

 

Then our world went into Corona virus time and everything stopped. Keeping in contact with our members became the committee’s priority with each committee member contacting members regularly.  We also have been putting out a monthly newsletter. 

      

 

 

 

 

 We haven’t started up our formal meetings yet as our venue is restricted in how many can attend, but we have been having catch-ups in local parks, with everyone bringing their own morning tea and enjoying each other’s company.   

 

      

    

                                                            

 

 

                                                                                  

 

 

 

 

          

 

End of 2019    

Christmas Party

 

We at Arana VIEW club saw 2019 out with a fun filled Christmas Party. The Committee provided the entertainment with a “Beach Party” themed day. Judy and Shelia provided lots of laughs with their skit to the music “please don’t talk to the lifeguard” as did Bonnie and Chris with their interpretation of Mr Bean’s day at the beach. Somehow Bonnie managed to change into the swimmers. Then the committee performed several very unco-ordinated surfing dances. It was recommended that they don’t give up their day jobs!! As a fun exercise each table had to decorate a member as a Christmas tree using the items provided. The photos show the creativity!

                   

                                                         

                                                                                                        

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We also joined the other VIEW clubs in our zone for Christmas gift wrapping at Stafford City Shopping Centre for the Smith Family.

 

               

 

Other activities at the end of the year were a visit to the Police museum where members enjoyed an informative talk about investigations by detectives.

Several members attended the Lord Mayor’s Christmas Concert as well in early December.

 

 

 

        

 

 September 2019 

Arana members enjoyed trying on spring fashions at the September meeting.  Fashions were by Michelle K Gifts and Boutique. 

 

 

The elegant models, Sheila, Val, Sandra, Debbie and Glen did an awesome job on the catwalk.

 

 

Arana members also attended the 2019 VIEW Convention held at Twin Waters on Queensland's beautiful Sunshine Coast during September.  

 

 

 

 

The Mystical Masquerade Ball was a highlight of the event and members donned their beautiful masks for the occasion.
