What we've been doing
March 2021 Meeting
What a fun meeting. Firstly, we all wore our “special bonnets” as a tribute to International Women’s Day, Easter and all our early VIEW members, who wore hats (and gloves) to meetings.
There was lots of interest in our preloved jewellery and bling table. This was a fun way to fundraise with plenty of smiles.
Our guest speaker Barry Cheales, from The Buderim Men’s Shed, shared “secret men’s business” and offered an open invitation for men to join this great group.

We are back to normal routine with our meetings and social events, which has delighted so many of us who missed the friendship and social interaction that is at the heart of our club. We continue to support the Smith Family both financially and with our five Learning for Life Students It was wonderful to see our members enjoying our very interesting first guest speaker for the year, local author Russell Sturgess
Christmas End of Year Celebrations
Just like a large family, we were all excited to once again see each other and catch up on each other’s news and forthcoming holiday plans. On 9th December, we enjoyed a delicious meal at a great location with plenty of room to ourselves at Wild Flower Restaurant, Birtinya, and so had a very successful end of year and festive season celebration. There was lots of laughter, fun, secret Santa surprises and lovely door prizes.
Kawana Waters wishes all VIEW clubs and extended families a safe and merry Christmas. Looking forward to an exciting VIEW 2021.
27th Birthday Celebration

It was with great excitement that we celebrated our 27th birthday and 60 years of VIEW Clubs Australia at IRT Parklands Leisure Village, Meridan Plains on 25th November. National Councillor Margaret Elliott, guests and club members were entertained by the junior Meridan State College choir and dancers from the senior college. Our guest speaker was Marion Allan from The Smith Family. A beautiful meal was prepared by Caloundra Meals on Wheels.
Our major fund-raising raffle, donated by local artist John Sumpton, and a gourmet hamper were drawn, with lots of lucky door prizes. Our birthday cake was cut and served and this ended an enjoyable and happy day.

October 2020 Luncheon Meeting
It is wonderful to have nearly all our members able to attend our meetings again. Lots of news, fun and laughter
