Moreton Bay VIEW Club was formed in 1997.
Currently, the Club sponsors five 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.
Members make new friends and lifetime friends by attending our monthly luncheon meeting at the Redland Sporting Club as well as participating in a variety of social occasions around the Redlands community. Visitors, guest and prospective new members are warmly welcomed to our friendly club at our lunchtime meetings held on the second Thursday of every month.
Members of our club are a wonderful and diverse group of women from many walks of life and life stages.
Our VIEW Club members enjoy much fun, laughter and a variety of social activities with like-minded women, who also become good friends. As a group we support financially disadvantaged Australian children's education.
