About

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 four 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.
