Warwick Day VIEW Club

About

Warwick Day VIEW Club was formed in 2002 and is a small but enthusiastic club.

Currently, the Club sponsors one Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs.

Our community does not have access to any Learning For Life programs or other Smith Family initiatives, so all our energies are focussed on supporting our student.  Every second month we raise money through our special imaginative raffles where all members donate an item or two for the multi-draw, e.g.  Pamper Me; Mystery Box/Bottle (contents undisclosed!) on a particular theme such as In my Pantry. 

Sue's Super Soup Day and a Melbourne Cup meet have become annual events and are included as some of our Friendship Days.

The fourth Wednesday of each month provides the opportunity for ladies to introduce a friend to VIEW by joining us on an outing for lunch or morning tea (and a raffle).  At the beginning of each year, members are allocated a month when they are responsible for organizing some fun activities as well as the Lucky Door and Raffle for the meeting.   Our major fundraiser is our birthday in October when visitors from Toowoomba and east of the range towards the Gold Coast join us in celebration.  

We have represented VIEW at the bi-annual local Seniors Expo with an information table and found this useful for networking and finding possible contacts for outings and guest speakers.  

In October 2018 we will celebrate our 16th birthday, with the theme for our party being 'Animal Crackers'.

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

Warwick Day VIEW members with their tree for Jumpers and Jazz in July festival

 

 

For the last three years we entered into the spirit of the Jumpers and Jazz in July festival by entering a decorated tree downtown. 

This year instead we have organised to participate in the Suitcase Rummage hand-made plus pre-loved items for sale.  We have found that our members prefer to be quiet achievers so we use our collective skills to provide a friendly atmosphere whilst supporting The Smith Family in our own special way.  We are Raffle Experts!
