Margaret Edwards receives VIEW pen and certificate from club Program Officer Christine
In March 2022
Our March meeting speaker was Margaret Edwards representing the community organisation Casey Cardinia for Refugees.
In the spirit of creating connections and education of women, Margaret told us about the history and plight of refugees in Australia; from the Vietnam era to those who are still in detention today.
We discovered that some members were involved in similar efforts in other organisations. It was an enlightening session.
Exceptional Meeting in June 2021
Our last meeting was terrific! The guest speaker was Danielle Kutchel, staff writer for the Star Group who has been our 'connection' for stories over the last few months in the Berwick Star and Pakenham Gazette newspapers.
We are delighted Danielle has signed up to come to our next meeting!
Four members of Berwick Evening VIEW Club took advantage of one of the best Autumn days in May for a drive to Marysville, Victoria to see its recovery from the 2009 bushfires.

Neil came to share his interest in the history of Berwick and the background of the names of some of the streets, parks and landmarks in Berwick and the surrounding district at a special meeting on Monday 19 April.

President Jan with Guest Speaker Neil
Berwick Evening VIEW held their first Dine Out on 31 March at the Copper and Fox in Pakenham, Victoria. Food was great and the company even better.
Throughout the year in addition to the monthly meeting, the Club holds a dine out to try different eateries in the area. We mix it up - time of day and day of the week and cuisine; thus enabling as many members as possible to participate.
