Centenary Evening VIEW Club

About

Centenary Evening VIEW club was formed in 1994. We are a lively and vibrant club with around 50 members.

Centenary Evening has a triple Focus- fun friendship and fundraising for disadvantaged students in The Smith Family's Learning for Life program. We will be supporting nine students this year.

We enjoy lots of varied trips and outings. Our monthly Coffee and Chat mornings are extremely popular.

Several fund raising events are held in members' homes, such as high teas and Melbourne Cup parties..

Every December finds the Centenary girls Christmas wrapping in shopping centres. This is a fun way to raise much needed funds.

We are always delighted to welcome new members, so please get in touch and come and see what we're all about.
