Pine Rivers VIEW Club

About

Pine Rivers VIEW Club was formed in 1996.

If you want to have FUN, make NEW FRIENDS and support an AUSTRALIAN CHARITY at the same time, come and join Pine Rivers VIEW club! We would love to welcome you.

Our luncheon meeting is the third Wednesday of each month. We have either an interesting guest speaker or some other entertainment on the day, including raffles and prizes.

If you wish to go we have an outing on the first Wednesday of every month. Past outings have included boat trips on the Pumicestone Passage, a Brisbane River cruise, visited a butterfly farm, celebrated Australia Day, had pizza and trivia in a local park, soup and crusty bread lunches and even a high tea.

On the fourth Wednesday of every month you can also join up with other members for a "Coffee and Chat” morning at a local venue.

At each of our functions we raise funds for The Smith Family. Our club proudly supports three disadvantaged Australian children with their education and we are regularly updated with their news and achievements.

We are always open to new members, so please get in touch today and come and see what it's all about.

When

  • Meeting Day on third Wednesday each month at 10.30 for 11.00 am
  • Held at Murrumba Downs Tavern

Day Out

Lovely day out for members; into the city by train for some and bus for others. Tour of City Hall and a lovely lunch at the Old Shingle Inn. Thank you Linda for organising.

Such fun to see everyone up and about and chatting with each other. Our Speaker, Jo Eeles from Signature Care, did a lot of explaining about the aged care system. Everyone should set up their ACAT now! Don’t wait till you need it. You would be surprised at what you are entitled to. It can take awhile to organise everything, so go for it now!

Everyone over 65 should do it.
