Aspley VIEW Club receives 2019 Lilley Australia Day Award 

Left – Bev Doolan, Founding President;  Right – Miffy Goodall, Current President

 

2019 January

Aspley VIEW Club was recognised at the annual Lilley Australia Day Awards (LADA) ceremony on Saturday 26 January when President Miffy Goodall and Founding President Bev Doolan were presented with the Ted Tremayne Memorial Award at Kedron Wavell Services Club, Chermside, Brisbane. This award is presented to a non-profit organisation to recognise the important contribution made by the organisation to its own members or the community at large

Club President Miffy Goodall acknowledged to members at the Aspley VIEW Club Annual General Meeting on 30 January that the award was a huge honour to all of us, including previous Committee members, and exciting for everyone who has been an Aspley VIEW Club member since its inception in 1994.  It is a tribute to the generosity of Club members who have contributed to fundraising for The Smith Family over the past 25 years.

An extract from The Award citation reads the “Aspley VIEW Club is the largest VIEW Club in Australia with over 200 members and epitomizes the strength of community coming together to help those in need”.

The Lilley Australia Day Awards recognise volunteers who have made generous contributions to the local community. The Ted Tremayne award was introduced to the Lilley Day Australia Awards program in 1998 in honour of Mr Ted Tremayne, a member of the inaugural Lilley Awards organising committee who was heavily involved in volunteer work himself.

Merry Christmas and an Exciting New Year

‘Our Club celebrated a wonderful year of fundraising and friendship with a Christmas luncheon at Kedron Wavell RSL Community Centre.  Santa and his elves were on hand to welcome nearly 200 members and guests who were entertained with a concert from Maureen Melodies.’

 

 Springing Into October

Spring has arrived and members celebrated in colourful outfits, and several new members were presented with their Club badge.

                   

 

 

 

Our guest speaker was Susan Gilmartin, Operations Manager for the School of Hard Knocks.  Many members hope to attend the SOHK Choir performance in Brisbane later in the year.  

 

   

 

 

2018 September Fashion Parade

This week we held our major fundraiser for the year with a Fashion Parade and Mega Raffle at Tavernetta Function Centre, Carseldine. Several members were models for the day wearing gorgeous outfits from Style Made Easy.

Among the many Mega raffle prizes generously donated was a beautiful sculptured fruit cake by Vicki Parry.

2018 Aspley's 24th Birthday June

Much fun, laughter and dressing up saw us celebrate our 24th birthday with a Tiara and Pearls theme.

Our Club continues to grow and several new members received their badges.  

Our luncheon speaker was Kevin Humphries from Mates4Mates who shared his inspirational story with us along with enlightening us about the crucial role Mates4Mates play in assisting and supporting our  ex servicemen and their families.

 

Meet the 2018 Committee

As the largest VIEW Club in Australia with over 200 members we need a large Committee so at our 2018 January Meeting 13 Committee members were elected to continue the huge job of fundraising and supporting our 30 Learning for Life students.

The Club raises funds at each luncheon meeting through raffles, book stall, a large trading table with jams and pickles plus home made goods all donated by members. 

Throughout the year the Club holds major fundraisers such as Fashion Parade, Cent Auctions, Hats and High Tea, Pop Up Shops etc.

Committee Members from left to right are:

Margaret Walsh, Programme Officer; Julie MacPherson, Programme Officer; Wendy Mauger, Vice President; Maureen Mosely, Assist Secretary; Thelma Steinberg, Programme Officer; Tricia Naylor, Assistant Treasurer; Dorrie Greenway, Vice President; Chris Grover, Treasurer; Miffi Goodall, President; Marion Connel, Publicity Officer; Helen Harkin, Programme Officer; Daina Geise, Delegate; Robyn Killoran, Secretary. 

 

Australia Day Special Award

Cora Zanetti has been an active member of Aspley VIEW Club since 2002. A mainstay of our fundraising program is the monthly luncheon meeting that has a trading table with items for purchase. At considerable personal expense and effort Cora makes, jams, pickles, chutneys and fruitcakes that sell like hotcakes and have raised considerable amount of money for our Club.

As a petite octogenarian, even the transporting of all these goods from her home to our luncheon venue each month is a remarkable effort in addition to everything else she does.

On Australia Day Cora was presented with a Lilley Australian Day Award. Aspley VIEW Club are extremely proud to have Cora as one of our most valued members.
