What we've been doing

December 2021 Christmas Lunch at Wildflower Restaurant, Birtinya





October 2021 Luncheon


Kawana Surf Club was a great venue with stunning views for our October meeting.  The new 2022 committee is a good mix of old and new members. (See photo above.)

Our guest speakers were Jacki and Janelle from STEMM (Support Teenagers with Education, Mothering and Mentoring). They shared their unique program supporting 26 girls tailored around their education, social, physical and emotional needs. 


September 2021—Portofino Fashion Parade

 On 29th September we enjoyed a fun filled morning fashion parade from Portofino.  Lots of lovely colours, fabrics, styles and accessories were modelled, while enjoying a covid safe morning tea and a glass of bubbles. 

September 2021 Outing: Pelican Waters/Pumicestone Passage Cruise


8th September was a perfect day for 24 Caloundra VIEW members and three husbands to cruise the Pumicestone Passage from Pelican Waters, past Caloundra and Bribie Island and return, including morning tea. Lunch at Pelican Waters Tavern completed a fantastic day.

2021.08 Kawana Waters Luncheon

Our August speaker, Paula McGrath, was a very vibrant speaker, talking about her interviews for her 'Pure Grit' podcasts. After the meeting she took the time to show members how to access podcasts on their phones. Thank you, Paula.

July 2021 Luncheon

Our July guest speaker was Bruce Barnes—a very informative and humorous speaker—from Sage Care Services, a local business that specialises exclusively in age care financial advice, assisting with government departments and ongoing support.

Christmas in July 2021

May Luncheon Meeting

 Our May meeting was a celebration of friendship and welcome to our guests.  We shared a lovely update letter from one of our sponsorship family.  It was great to have our book and trading table back operating to help contribute much needed funds to continue to support our five students.

We enjoyed a very informative video and talk by volunteers Geoff and Brian on the amazing organisation and skills of the flight and emergency crews of RACQ Lifeflight and how this life saving service operates.
