Moreton Bay VIEW Club

About

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.

Our Feburary AGM Committee members were sworn in by View Member Margaret. We also had the honour of hosting Lurleen Burrows Zone Counsellor. Very well attended and interesting Meeting 

Mateship in October 2020 

Members and Friends had a lovely time of mateship during the month of October. 

This included a happy and interesting lunch meeting early in the month with a great guest speaker from the Berghoffer Research Institute.  Clare Blake gave us some wonderful insight into the research going on behind the scenes at the institute, and the amazing work being done by the many scientists.  Clare was a very interesting speaker whom you could listen to for hours if possible.

As can be seen by the photos; members also enjoyed a Good Day Out when lots of friends took a bus trip to the Ginger factory  that included a morning tea stop at the Yandina Historical House where we enjoyed some home baking.

See you all at our November meeting and please bring along a friend if you are able to.

 

 

 

 

September 2020

What a lovely time we have had for the first month of spring, and celebrating our Club’s Birthday at the luncheon meeting.  There was a mask parade which was great fun with some very innovative creations.

To mark the fact that we are now able to again, meet together, we also had what we dubbed as a stich in time; sewing us all back together after such a long time.  Members brought along handmade items for display, with some members relaying the background story of their wonderful work.

A lovely coffee morning was also held at a cafe and a very successful and delicious lunch outing.

It is so good to be back to almost normal with a great month of friendship.

 

Back Together for Spring

           

 

August 2020 Meet and Greet

Moreton Bay members had a wonderful get-together at their first meeting for many months and made the most of the time for a great catch up and much longed for socialising. We enjoyed a lovely lunch and some funny stories shared by members of their time in isolation.

How lovely to be able to be together again and we are all looking forward to our next meeting when we will be celebrating our club’s birthday. Until then, greetings from us all.

 

 

 

July 2020 Update

Well here we are exactly half way through the year and what a year it has been.

Fingers crossed that everything stays safe enough for this to go ahead  Stay well everyone, and I hope to see you all soon.

Picnic in the Park

July saw us finally meeting for a picnic in the park. There were only a handful of us but it was lovely to meet for some fun and friendship. It was so nice to catch up for a bit of a chat.

 

2020 June Update

Yet another month with not much happening.  At last though, there may be an end to this very long tunnel.  All being well, we may be able to have a meeting in August.  This  of-course is subject to change  Confirmation can be made via President Ann on 32869650 or Secretary Barb on 33963865.

In some good news we do have a picnic coming up on the 9th of July at Wellington Point.  Will be so good  to see our View friends again.

Well here’s hoping our meetings will be back to normal, sooner rather than later.

2020 April-May View Club

Well here we are nearing the end of another very quiet month.

April and May have looked very different for all our clubs with no meetings or outings.

However our wonderful President and our very funny Secretary have been keeping in close contact with us via emails and phone calls.

Thanks Ann and Barb,some very funny and interesting content.

It may still be a couple of months before we can all get together again but when we do it is going to be very special indeed,

Looking forward to seeing everyone soon,

2020 March Meeting 

Our guest speaker was Megan Imber who is the manager  of the Redlands Performing Arts Centre.   Megan spoke about the behind the scenes running of the RPAC and she gave some very interesting highlights and told about some of the quirks of some performers.

Of course our meetings and outings  (like all others) have been suspended until our world gets back to normal. Until then please stay safe and well everyone and hopefully we will see you all soon.

2020 February Outing 

Our members and some visiting members from local View Clubs enjoyed a delightful morning tea at  “The French Table Restaurant”. So much fun and laughter as always.

Laughter in December

At our December meeting we were introduced to Laughter Yoga by the appropriately named Heatherjoy Campbell. We all laughed so hard it wasn’t possible to get many good photos!  

All dressed up in our Christmas outfits, we ended the day by singing Carols followed by Auld Lang Syne.

 

 

 

A Very Full November

The theme for out November meeting was “A Day at the Country Races” with a competition for the most glamorous hat and for the silliest hat.

We also held a Bring and Buy Stall to raise money for the Smith family’s “Learning for Life” programme.

Our guest speaker was Lisa McLean from Queensland Rail who showcased some of Queensland’s iconic rail journeys.

                      

A Bonny Visit to City Hall

This month we enjoyed an outing to Brisbane’s City Hall to see a Scottish Concert billed as “A Trip to Bonny Scotland – a tartan rug to the land of heather, haggis and hairy cows”. We couldn’t help but sing along to some of the songs.

Of course our day had to include morning tea at the “Shingle Inn” and lunch at the Red Cross Café.

 

 

 

October 2019 Meeting

Our guest speaker at our lunch meeting was a member of the Queensland Police Force. He spoke of his amazing experiences both in the Police Force and as a former member of the US Army serving in Panama and Iraq.

The Sound Of Music In October

In October we enjoyed a concert at the Redland Performing Arts Complex featuring the music of Julie Andrews.

We also met for our regular coffee and chat at “Arabica Café” at Cleveland.
