Gympie VIEW Club

About

Gympie VIEW Club was formed in 1995.

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.

GYMPIE VIEW CLUB has over 60 members and covers a large area from Cooroy and Pomona in the south, from Kilkivan and Goomeri in the west, from Curra and Glenwood in the north and from Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach in the east to Gympie in the centre of the region.

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

Besides regular interesting speakers at our monthly meeting we have many social activities during the month. Our active program officers organise activities such as craft days, a cruise and coffee mornings, which are always very popular with members.  These activities assist us in raising money to support our Smith Family Learning for Life students, who we have facilitated over many years, as well as enjoying ourselves.

When

  • Meeting Day on 3rd Friday each month
  • 10.30am for 11.00am start.
  • At Gunabul Homestead, Power Road, Gympie

Craft Day at Charmaine's

What a beautiful day to do some Christmas craft and enjoy some wonderful company on the verandah at Charmaine’s home on Friday the 13th where seventeen ladies had a fun and crafty day. 

Some ladies made some place-mats by making an A3 collage and then laminating them, while others did some decoupage on glass jars and other items with napkins.  As you can see by the photos some beautiful gifts were made and the stories told are of a wonderful fun day spent with VIEW friends.

There were also some ladies who didn’t join the craft part of the day but enjoyed the fun and we encourage all members to our craft days as they are really just an excuse to get together to enjoy each other’s company with yummy food and to learn different crafts for those interested.

Supporting 1,000 Heart's Foundation 

Recently a craft day was held at Jill's house at Southside; there were seven ladies present, and it was decided that our craft day would support Jean's project, the 1000 hearts foundation, by hand sewing and decorating small pocket hearts which will be given to people who need a little kindness in their lives, no matter what the problem. 

We had a lovely time making our hearts which are pictured as well enjoying a lovely lunch together.
