Meet Our 2022 Committee
President Michele was absent, so Janice (pictured below) took the helm and did a wonderful job. Janice is also responsible for facilitating our luncheons with The Junction. It’s another very important way she supports our VIEW Club. You are a star Janice!

In the foyer of the Capri Theatre before seeing the movie, Mrs Harris Went to Paris. Ladies from the Marion and Oaklands VIEW Clubs together organised this wonderfully successful fundraiser for our Learning for LIfe students.
Food, Wine and Camaraderie
Our outing to Patritti's Winery was a great success; the food, wine and camaraderie was much enjoyed by the thirty seven ladies who attended, as can be seen by the photo below.

Student Message In 2022 July
THANK YOU from one of our LfL students who said:
Thank you for the gift card and the voucher. Means so much more than you think. Thank you for your kindness because you send me ones every year. I appreciate everything you ever did for me. Thank you so much.

Treasurer Chris, shown below, giving her monthly report. She moved that our Club contribute to JOYSPREADERS, The Smith Family Program which enable a larger number of students (not the Learning for Life students) to receive educational support.
This was agreed to by the membership. They are pleased to know that, on their behalf, $2,995.00 has been sent to The Smith Family to use for this purpose.

2022 St Patrick's Day Celebrations
Picnic In The Park
Rather than bemoan the fact that COVID-19 concerns had once again cancelled our luncheon at The Junction, we relocated to the Oaklands Wetlands for a picnic.
BYO chairs, lunch and drinks were the order of the day for our catch up. It was just great to see each other again, and in such a lovely setting. The day certainly put the fun and friendship back into VIEW. Even the kookaburras, magpies and corellas joined in!
I just can’t believe that I have been a member of Marion VIEW Club for 20 years.
Within a short time I had joined a Mah Jong group followed by a Book Club, and, for a short time, a discussion group. I now play Rummy every other Monday. I have met so many wonderful interesting people along the way.
The highlight was becoming the second President in 2005 and 2006; the most nervous President Marion has ever had I’m sure.
Pauline, who had joined VIEW on the same day as I did, was Secretary. We had a wonderful committee and during this time we had a fashion parade at the Glenelg Golf Club. I think the biggest fund raiser so far.
Eight of us travelled to Geelong for the Convention which was a lot of fun. So many lovely memories. Thank you all for being so friendly.
Ten Year Service Awards
The Marion VIEW Club congratulates Janice and Riet who have been members of the Club for 10 years.
2022 Australia Day
Pauline Glover, who is a member of the Marion VIEW Club and National Counsellor for South Australia, receiving the City of Marion's Citizen of the Year 2022 Award for the decades she has spent reaching out to the Marion Community.
2022 Catch Up
Due to COVID restrictions our Book Club decided to meet at the Oaklands Reserve. It was great catching up after a long break.
We took our lunch, caught up on the gossip and finally talked about books we had read. The weather was great and we will do it again next month
Ten Year Service Recipients
Congratulations to Joan, Lynette and Bronwyn, who received their 10 year Award Recognition.
2021 Christmas Celebrations
What a wonderful year we've had on the trading table. We couldn't do it without all the wonderful donations from our members.
The Hon. Corey Wingard MP was a guest at our December luncheon. He is very supportive of our Marion VIEW Club.
Listening to Corey are L-R: Chris, Michele and Shirley
At the November Luncheon these six very special ladies received their 20-year badges:
Photo L-R: Lorraine (presented the badges), Yvonne, Beverly, Jenny, Darilyn, Heather and Lyn
President Mandy stepped down from her usual role and became our Guest Speaker for the Luncheon.
In a salute to Remembrance Day she spoke about Sister Vivian Bullwinkel whose life she’d researched. Her moving account of Sister Vivian’s inspirational life and her experiences during World War 11 was quite confronting and very moving.
There wasn’t a dry eye among the ladies when she finished. Thank you Mandy, we all thought you were wonderful.
The Smith Family’s Toy & Book Appeal is your opportunity to help bring a smile to the faces of Australian children at Christmas. Children who may otherwise miss out on opening a gift, simply because their families can’t afford it.Read more...
