Caloundra Evening VIEW Club was formed in 1995.
Currently, the Club sponsors eight Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs.
Our club has a positive interest in local activities, with many members not only supporting the disadvantaged children in our area but also volunteering in many and various ways. We are always open to new members, so please get in touch today and come and see what it's all about.
Members of our Club are a diverse group of 119 women from many walks of life and life stages. Our official meeting is held monthly with an average attendance of some 80 members who enthusiastically support the club.
- Meeting Day is 2nd Tuesday each month

Our members make new friends by attending monthly dinners at the Caloundra Power Boat Club as well as a variety of social occasions at venues all around Caloundra. Visitors and guests are most welcome at our meetings held on the second Tuesday of each month. For further information, please contact the Secretary Sue on 0403 504 408.
Once each year we fundraise by engaging in the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle and the Sunshine Coast Marathon. Some members are also supporting the VIEW Learning For Life program by actively working with disadvantaged children as mentors or tutors. Our Club also provides financial support, sponsoring ongoing education for eight of these students.
Keep up to date with what is happening around the clubs.
A Lifetime of Service Rewarded

A very elegant Mrs June Shaw was presented with her 50 year pin by Zone Councillor Margaret Elliott at the March meeting of Caloundra Evening VIEW Club. One hundred club members were present for the celebratory dinner. June was National Councillor from 1994 to 1996 and was awarded the Order of Australia in May, 2003 for her service to VIEW Clubs. June responded with a very humble and gracious speech about her lifetime of service to the VIEW Club and the Smith Family Charity which brought a standing ovation from members inspired by her incredible service to the community.

What We've Been Doing:
Dinner at Tiffany's—23rd Birthday
Caloundra Evening VIEW Club enjoyed a magical celebration at our recent gala 23rd Birthday Dinner. The theme for the evening was ‘Dinner at Tiffany’s – Audrey Hepburn Style with Diamonds and Pearls’. Members were excited to wear fashions created by screen legend Audrey Hepburn, accenting their outfits with a stunning display of classic jewellery. Founding member Carol and newest member, Juliet, cut the 23rd birthday cake, while guests were also served from spectacular tiered cupcake stands. The evening continued with animated dancing to the music of entertainers Barney & Di of ‘Kwozzi’ who played a mixture of old time and modern music.

Twenty-three enthusiastic volunteers, including four husbands, were on hand to pack event bags and greet the excited competitors at the Alexandra Headland Surf Lifesaving Club. The Caloundra VIEW members have been volunteers for the registration of athletes for the seven years since the event's inception in 2012. Proceeds from our participation will assist local disadvantaged students.
