Birthday Celebrations

Our 19th birthday was celebrated at our last dinner meeting at The Arkaba Hotel, as the venue is closing for renovations.

The Italian theme was celebrated with red, green and white cup cakes with small Italian flags. Our guest speaker was the wonderful Marinella Marmo from Associazione Italia. Our lovely table centrepieces were created by inaugural member Claire.

Many of us dressed in the flag colours of red, green and white but we also had Sister Mary (Margie), Giorgio the Gondolier (Leanne) and Con the Fruiterer (Gwenda). Yes, we know Con is Greek but we are an inclusive club!

Trish was presented with her 30 year badge. Congratulations, Trish.

The ACE club thanks the staff of The Arkaba for our many years of monthly dinners.

We are looking forward to our new beginnings at The Kent Town Hotel for our 26 April meeting.

2021 Unconventional Friday Dinner

Members of Adelaide City Evening VIEW were undeterred by the postponement of VIEW National Convention and enjoyed an 'Unconvention' Friday night dinner at a city hotel. Having fun at the dinner were Jill, Janice, Gwenda, Marlee, Sue, Sue, Maz,Cherie, Maxine, Di, Sally, Edna, Maralyn, Della and Margie.

A group who had booked accommodation in the CBD near the Convention Centre retained their booking and enjoyed being tourists in their hometown - a morning at the Adelaide Botanical Gardens with lunch at the Botanical Gardens Cafe and the next morning a trip on Popeye on the Torrens with lunch at the Lounders Boatshed Cafe. 

A great dress rehearsal for 2022!!




2021 August Fashion

Adelaide City Evening VIEW held our first FUN fundraiser since September 2019 on August 14th 2021.

We held a Lunch and Fashion Parade at The Maid of Auckland Hotel. The food was fantastic and our supermodels did an amazing job.

Many thanks to MidCoast Styling for the fashions and to the hotel for making the event so successful.

Thanks to the models Jenny, Margie, Krissy from MidCoast, Sue, Gwenda and Gaynor.

They really were SUPER!!



2021 March - 17th Birthday Celebtrations

Adelaide City Evening VIEW held their 17th Birthday Party in March. We called it "Let's go dotty - take 2" as our 16th birthday party - "Let's go dotty" - was cancelled because of COVID-19.

Leo Capurso and his keyboard entertained us singing old time favourites and even had some members up dancing.
