Welcome to 2021

Our last meeting last year was in October so we missed both our 2020 birthday and Christmas celebrations.

Our AGM was in January and we look forward to continuous meetings from now on 🤞

2019 March - 15th Birthday

Adelaide City Evening VIEW celebrated their 15th Birthday by “Painting the Town Red.” As well as the many ‘ladies in red’, we had house painters and even a firewoman. A ukulele duo started our night of fun and frivolity and SA02 Zone Councillor Anne Strangway cut our cake.

The Ladies from Holdfast VIEW were out in force at Adelaide City Evening VIEW 15th birthday. 

We would like to pay a special mention to Lorraine Baker who was a true force in helping to develop our club. A tireless worker still involved with both Holdfast and Marion clubs. Keep on keeping on Lorraine.

 

2018 Bridal Gowns Through the Ages

 

2018 June

Adelaide City Evening  VIEW was blessed with a beautiful sunny, although cool, day for their main event for the year (or was that decade?!).

Over 200 ladies attended our 'Bridal Gowns through the Ages' event at Westbourne Park Uniting Church. We gathered in the sunshine for champagne and orange juice in the church courtyard and perused the static display of wedding gowns, which were too delicate to wear, set up in the church hall. The parade was held in the church itself with the requisite pew bows and horseshoes. The gowns started with Marion wearing her great grandmother's gown which was worn on Christmas Day in 1879! The parade of gowns then moved through the years right up to February this year.

Past ZC Jan McFarlane wore her dress from her wedding to Peter in 1972. 

After the parade guests moved to the hall for the 'reception' of delicious home made afternoon tea and the 'Glory Box' raffle was drawn.

A piece of wedding cake was given to all guests to take home to put under their pillow. A great day and a great fundraiser for The Smith Family.

 

Handbags

Adelaide City Evening VIEW members recently donated around 70 new and used handbags together with shampoos, soaps and personal hygiene products to be presented to women at an Adelaide Domestic Violence unit for Mothers’ Day.

Members also helped to decorate the accommodation units with gifts of cushions, paintings, a kettle and a toaster
