2021 October Inauguration

Tonsley VIEW Club was the first VIEW Club in Australia to be inaugurated in 2021, and the 19th VIEW Club in S.A.  86 guests attended, including National VIEW President Anne-Louise O’Connor and National VIEW Manager Mary-Anne Maher who zoomed in from N.S.W., given Covid border restrictions, to welcome the fifty Tonsley members to the VIEW and TSF family, and inform them of exciting developments

National Manager S.A. /N.T. for TSF, Graham Jaeschke also welcomed new members to the VIEW family, describing VIEW members as gold for their immense contributions to TSF in sponsoring 1,943 students Nationally, as well as support for TSF programs.

A Kaleidoscope of Colour-Women of VIEW was the theme for the Inauguration, with stunning martini glass table centerpieces on VIEW coloured table runners, and matching décor and fashion!

In the physical absence of Mary-Anne and Anne-Louise, National Councillors Anne Strangway and Janice Spraakman assisted by Zone Councillor Dr Pauline Glover, presented the Charter, and VIEW badge packs to President Deb, Committee Members and Members.

Seventeen VIEW Clubs were represented on the day, and each of our eighteen Clubs donated to purchase gifts required by the Club, including a VIEW banner and VIEW tablecloths. A raffle of ten lovely prizes contributed to the generous funds already raised for the Tonsley VIEW Club, who will now be able to sponsor their first students.

In closing, Development Team Leader Jennie Lee thanked the nine Helpers from other VIEW Clubs, The S.A. View Development Team, and S.A. Leaders who had worked hard to found the new Club in seven months; Covid challenges and all.
