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.

Embracing Equity in 2023

Three suffragettes greeted members of VA01 zone as they arrived for Heidelberg VIEW Club’s IWD celebration. Suzanne, Roz and Jenny proudly channelled the suffragettes of the past who fought for women’s right to vote. Members arrived wearing the colours of purple, teal and white; suffragist colours and also, fittingly, our VIEW colours. Like the suffragettes of old, VIEW women raise their voices for change for the common good.
