Maroochydore VIEW Club was formed in 2001. Currently, the Club sponsors ten Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs. Maroochydore VIEW Club members share fun and friendship over a beautiful lunch. A variety of informative and interesting guest speakers entertain and inspire us at our meetings. At each lunch there are raffle and lucky door prizes, as well as a book stall.
Each month we also enjoy a social outing. These social occasions are a great way to make friends, particularly if you are new to the Sunshine Coast. We also have a monthly coffee morning and two bookclubs.
A highlight of each year is our Walk With a VIEW, through which we raise funds for the Learning for Life program through obtaining sponsors.
Why don’t you come along and see what our VIEW Club is all about? We always look forward to welcoming new members. Visit our Facebook page.
