On 17th June Robina committee members put their heads together for the first time since March to work out a Return to VIEW date, which—if things go to plan and fingers crossed—will be 5th August, in time for the club's 10th birthday.  'Let's party!' Stay tuned for further updates.

 

 

2020 March - "If Only!"

What will I do when I can’t go to VIEW?

Self Isolate they say!

IF ONLY I could KNIT, I could create beanies, scarves, mittens and socks.

IF ONLY I could SEW, I could do the mending and then maybe a dress or two.

IF ONLY I could BAKE, I would make masterpieces with flour and icing.
            What wonders to behold.

If ONLY I could PAINT.  With easel and smock, brushes and paints.
            What beauty I could create

IF ONLY I could work at CRAFT. The possibilities are boundless I could
            cut and paste.  Assemble and decorate cards.

I know what I can do when I can’t go to VIEW

                        CLEAN        

Yes, I will clean, tidy and throw things away
Rooms full of drawers and cupboards.

When I run out of rooms, there is always the garage.
Ah, so many boxes.

Yes that is what I can do when I can’t go to view

        What will you do  when you can’t go to VIEW?

Our 10th Birthday coming up in August

 

 

 

Welcome 2020

Robina VIEW Club is off to a good start for 2020.  All Committee positions were filled and two members received service badges from National Councillor Evelyn Berg

Jen Newham – President 2019 has been there since the beginning  - 2010. and said “It’s a wonderful Organization raising money to assist in Australian Kids education and well-being and I am proud to be a member of Robina VIEW Club”

Janice Foster received her 25 year badge and said

“Over the years I have made lasting friendships through this organization.  It is great to get together, have some fun, hear interesting speakers.   Participating on committees has helped me to develop in many ways. In my opinion VIEW provides a platform for women of all ages to feel they are contributing to helping Australian children in need as well as enjoying life just a bit better.”

To give you an idea of the fun we have, below are some of the events that we held during 2019.

Christmas 2019 Celebrations 

Whip Cracking

A daylong bus trip into the Gold Coast Hinterland to visit an historic house and winery included morning tea and lunch as well as some surprises as we watched working dogs round up sheep and were given a lesson in whip cracking!

 

 

 

 

 

Ninth Birthday Celebrations

The theme for our 9th Birthday Party was “Come Fly With Me”.   Members dressed is the clothing of their favourite country to visit and were ‘processed’ through an improvised airport as they made their way to their seats.   The photo shows our two flight attendants (committee members) who entertained us with a witty script.   A travel trivia quiz, a paper plane throwing competition, music and dancing as well as a tasty lunch made the party highly enjoyable. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

High Tea

Several Club members enjoyed a sumptuous High Tea on the top floor of one of the Gold Coast’s resorts!
