Glasshouse Country VIEW Club

About

Glasshouse Country VIEW Club was formed in 2003. Each year we celebrate our birthday in June.

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

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

VIEW clubs throughout Australia are an integral part of The Smith Family, a children’s charity helping disadvantaged Australian children. 

We are a very sociable group of ladies; we have great fun, interesting topics, speakers and outings and we enjoy knowing that the money we raise goes to a very worthy cause. If you would like to help disadvantaged Australian children please come and join us. We always welcome new members—just turn up to one of our meetings or outings. 

When

  • Meeting Day on 3rd Wednesday each month 
  • 11 am for 11.30 at Glasshouse Country RSL
