2018 April

The women of VIEW in Zone VC 01/02 took knitting to new levels recently when
many of them donated thousands of hours to knit woollen squares that were
later sewn into rugs or cushion covers for use in the three Learning for
Life Centres in the Zone. Although the expertise of the work and the beauty
of the finished products were exceptional, the kindness of the women who
knitted and constructed the finished products was heart warming and left me
quite over-awed. In a more literal sense these goods will bring comfort and
warmth to the children we serve.

At our February meeting, we rewarded ourselves with a special cake congratulating all the workers who did Christmas wrapping at Marketplace and Lansell Plaza Shopping Centres in Bendigo.

We raised the magnificent sum of $4,270.30

22nd Birthday October

The Bendigo Evening View Club celebrated their 22nd birthday in October with 'Denim and Diamonds' the theme for the day.   

Members held a craft day prior to the event to make the table decorations, flowers, etc.  These were all made from denim which made an interesting talking point and a quiz was held to test everyone's knowledge about denim. 

There were many clubs represented from around the zone and 62 members and visitors enjoyed dressing up for the occasion.  This helped to make it a fun filled day with plenty of laughs and the chance to catch up with friends.  A demonstration of line dancing had many joining in and a well stocked trading table and plenty of raffle prizes made it a very successful day.
