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.

 

What we've been doing

2018 Birthday Celebration

Adelaide City Evening VIEW celebrated their 14th birthday in March at the Arkaba Hotel.  The theme was “Holiday Adventures and Memories”.

Guest from Oaklands VIEW (and inaugural Vice President of Adelaide City Evening VIEW) Claire, spoke of Lancaster County and Amish people.  Several members also gave talks. Di spoke of London to Katmandu in the 70s; Christine spoke of a recent trip to Hawaii; Rosey spoke of a nostalgic trip to Rio with her daughter; and Ros spoke of Gorillas in Rwanda. Zone Councillor Anne used her topic to encourage members to travel to National Convention at Twin Waters on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast next year.

As well as ‘Pass the Parcel’, member Gwenda gave us a safety talk about life jackets. Many laughs and fun were shared by all.

Lions' 'Show and Shine' Car show

We participated in the Lions' 'Show and Shine' Car show at Gumeracha. Entry fee into the car show was a Christmas gift for The Smith Family Toy and Book appeal. Members had a great time promoting VIEW and  collecting the gifts on behalf of The Smith Family.

Promoting VIEW

 

Runner up in the Group category

Adelaide City Evening VIEW was selected as Runner up in the Group category of the umbrella photo competition. We had great fun posing at Glen Osmond Rd 'in and on' the fountain! It's a busy intersection so the traffic must have thought we were crazy!

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
