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.

2021 February Update

This meeting was well attended and interesting; there was no guest speaker, however Lurlene spoke about friendships within our View Clubs.

An invitation was received to attend a fashion parade for International Women’s Day, and this event will be held by the Logan View Club on the 10th March. Please contact Carmel on 0403950519 for further information if needed.
Our next meeting will be on Thursday 11th March and we will have a special guest speaker for International Women’s Day.
Hope to see you all there.
Members Poem for 2020
It was the last meeting for 2020, and we did it with a bang, featuring a wonderful Christmas themed luncheon.
Great entertainment from The Celtic Duo and with so much fun happening it was hard to say good-bye to the day. Thanks to the Redlands Sporting Club for putting on a lovely Christmas lunch and the most beautiful decorations.
There will not be any meetings in January, however we will have our annual lunch at the Redlands R.S.L. The February meeting is the A.G.M. so hope to see you all there.
Happy and safe Christmas to everyone and see you all again in the New Year.
Finally, it’s back to normal for many clubs and Moreton Bay Club has had a great month of get togethers.
Our November luncheon meeting was well attended and our guest speaker was a big hit with everyone. Brisbane author Caylie Jeffery told us about the incredible detective work that went into her book ‘Under the Lino’. A whole community of people came together to research this amazing tale of Brisbane history.
Coffee morning was a great time of friendship as always.
Thank you, Carol, for organising a wonderful lunch at The Trailer Boat Club, which was also well attended and lots of fun.
December brings our last meeting for 2020 and we have been very fortunate in being able to secure the highly recommended ‘Celtic Heart’ duo for this meeting.
Hoping everyone has a safe and happy Christmas and a wonderful year ahead.
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.
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.

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
