A valued part of The Smith Family

Colac Evening VIEW Club


Colac Evening VIEW Club was formed in 2001.

The Club welcomes women from across the district to its dinner meetings. 

Guest speakers are invited and a diverse range of topics are covered throughout the year. 

Each month, dinner costs $28 and drinks are available at the venue. 

Currently, the Club sponsors six Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs. The Smith family allocates this funding confidentially and also provides counseling for the students and their families.The club continues this support throughout each student's primary, secondary and, if necessary, tertiary studies.

During the year, VIEW club members also participate in events, theatre, art shows and exhibitions in
Melbourne, Geelong or the local region. 

New members are always welcome. Please telephone for more details.

Colac Celebrates 19 Years Young

With the relaxing of COVID-19 restrictions and new VIEW Guidelines for Face to Face Activities, members of the Colac Evening VIEW Club were able to celebrate their club's 19th birthday by holding a happy hour in a private home.

Accompanied by finger food and drinks, members reminisced about their lives when then were 19 year of age; from which many similar themes emerged. It was very enjoyable evening.
