A valued part of The Smith Family

Buderim VIEW Club


Buderim VIEW Club was formed in 1993.

Currently, the Club sponsors seven Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs.

Our function room is at the very centrally located Buderim Tavern.  At our luncheon meetings we always have interesting guest speakers. New members are very welcome.  Attending our club’s events will help raise funds for educating students of underprivileged families.  Luncheon cost is $28.

On the third Wednesday each month we have a social activity/outing.

Julie's Care Bears

Treasurer Julie, a long time member of Buderim VIEW Club, has been busy during COVID-19. She voluntarily knitted 16 Care Bears for the Red Cross .  The bears are stuffed with special non-allergenic filling and are given to children who are experiencing trauma, often from an accident, operation or even family violence.  Evidence shows that these bears do help to relieve stress.
