Greensborough Evening VIEW Club

About

Greensborough Evening VIEW Club was established in 1993.

Our members are offered the opportunity to enjoy various activities - monthly morning teas, knitting and scrabble groups, a yearly weekend away, day outings and games nights.

Best of all, we offer the opportunity to meet new friends while sharing a two course meal and listening to a guest speaker.

Our six Learning for Life students are the major focus of our fundraising.

We are dedicated to making a difference, along with The Smith Family to disadvantaged children.

If you would like to join us for dinner one evening, we would love to hear from you.
