This nineteenth SA VIEW Club is to be inaugurated on Thursday 7 October 2021, with our National President Anne-Louise O’Connor and National Office Manager Mary-Anne Maher hopefully travelling to S.A. for the event, or zooming in if necessary, due to Covid border restrictions.
The Club had a very successful Coffee Information Morning in March this year, with 58 ladies attending, 40 being new to VIEW, and 18 being VIEW Helpers and supporters. By our June Interest Luncheon Meeting, we had the required 25 new to VIEW members, to proceed to the formation of the Club, and our Formation Meeting was held on August 5th with 45 Tonsley VIEW Club members present. Our first full Committee was elected, with a further 11 ladies volunteering for Assistant positions.
We have had significant assistance in establishing the Club so quickly, from 9 VIEW members of three surrounding Clubs, Blackwood Hills, Marion and Holdfast Evening VIEW Clubs. These Helpers have assisted the S.A. Development Team and assumed roles at each luncheon. They are now mentoring Tonsley members in their new roles.
The Club has already held very successful fundraisers including raffles and trading tables, and looks forward to soon sponsoring its first student through The Smith Family.
These friendly and enthusiastic members look forward to welcoming new visitors and members.
VIEW is a leading women’s national volunteer organisation.
VIEW provides women with an opportunity to build lasting friendships, empowered and connected by the common purpose to support The Smith Family and make a difference to disadvantaged Australian Children and young people.
