Something different

Lendlease has a Community Connect Program – they invite all community groups to attend a Retirement Village Tour (one at King George Avenue, Hove and one at Vermont).

The Marion VIEW Club attended the Vermont Retirement Village, 7a Wheaton Street, South Plympton on the 24 May.  The only requirement is that you need 15 members or more, to attend to receive the $500.00 gift card.  We were provided a free morning tea, which was absolutely scrumptious.  We had a guided tour of the village which showcased their two bedroom homes and apartments (1 bedroom and 2 bedroom) some of which were fully serviced (including meals).

I can highly recommend this Community Connect Program as it is a wonderful fundraiser for any VIEW Club in South Australia.
