25th Birthday Celebrations
Mornington VIEW Club celebrated their 25th birthday at Mornington Golf Club on 28th June, 2019 with a theme of silver and hot pink. We were joined by members of VIEW Executive, Past Presidents and members of other VIEW clubs in our zone. Our special guest was Mandy Van Zenen who entertained us with a delightful selection of songs, old and new.
Members of our birthday committee did a wonderful job decorating the tables and also made special gifts for all who attended to celebrate our birthday. We were also well supported by local businesses who donated raffle prizes for the occasion.
It was an excellent day and was enjoyed by all. We are a very active and friendly club and new members are always welcome.
