Our 28th birthday celebration was a lot of fun as we joined in the Make a Spectacle of Yourself competition in order to celebrate the Centenary of The Smith Family.
We were entertained by singer Mandy van Zanen who invited us to sing along with her. Mandy is a wonderful singer and it was a lot of fun to join in the singing. There was also a Secret Spectacle Snooper who selected the three spectacles that will be entered in The Smith Family’s competition.
A raffle was held with three hampers full of lovely nibbles and wine as the prizes. A good time was had by all who attended and now we look forward to July as we are holding a Box Auction which is a lot of fun.
L-R: Gillian, Bev and Marilyn.

We missed many of our meetings in 2021 due to COVID restrictions but we were pleased to hold our November meeting and also arranged a Christmas Party in early December December.
All members attending were asked to bring along a gift to the value of $5.00 to put in Father Christmas’s sack to be distributed by him. We were lucky that our Assistant Treasure Beverley was able to persuade her husband Bob to help us out.
Mornington Golf Club decorated the tables and the room looked lovely. A good time was had by all and it was a lovely way to finish what had been a difficult year. We are now looking for better things to come in 2022.
The Smith Family’s Toy & Book Appeal is your opportunity to help bring a smile to the faces of Australian children at Christmas. Children who may otherwise miss out on opening a gift, simply because their families can’t afford it.Read more...
