2021 May

A wonderful turn-out for the May meeting, when guest speaker Vivienne, from Accessorize U, was welcomed.  Vivienne showed us the latest accessories for winter, including scarfs, bags, jewellery, and snoods! 

The next meeting will be on Tuesday, 15th of June, as our usual Monday falls on a public holiday.   For this meeting our speaker is from KOGO (Knit One Give One), the charity that supplies knitted hats, gloves, and blankets to those in need.  Our members contribute a considerable number of items for this group.

Birthday Celebrations in April 2021

What a successful meeting we had this month!  Seventy five ladies helped celebrate both our 25th and 26th birthdays!  Members and guests were greeted at the door by Committee members in all their splendour wearing their tiaras! 

A number of members also dressed in silver in honour of our silver birthday. The wonderful Adrian Dickens spoke about the Jewelry of The Three Queens and Three Princesses.  We saw some absolutely beautiful jewels belonging to them.

Our May meeting will see Vivienne, from Accessorize U make a return visit and show us the latest in accessories and scarfs, and how to wear them.

MARCH  2021

Once again we had a wonderful turnout for the March Meeting. Everyone seems so happy to renew their friendships with other members!  If the noise level is anything to go by, it was a huge success! 

We were entertained by Yvonne, The Gadget Lady, and all her wares.  

Next month we are celebrating not only our 26th birthday, but our 25th as well, which was cancelled last year.  Our friend, jeweller Adrian Dickens returns and this year tells us about the jewellery belonging to “The Three Queens”. We are looking forward to this talk with much anticipation!

VIEW is Back in 2021

Well, at last, finally we were able to have a meeting, the first in eleven months!!! There was a good turn-out, and it was wonderful to catch up with so many of our members.

Although masks were mandatory, we were able to remove them to eat!  It was like a Masked Ball, where everybody removed them at midnight! There were some surprises, with a number of different hair colours and styles! 

We consumed a great meal, while enjoying the complete refit of our meeting room at the Mulgrave Country Club. 

The AGM was short, as all current members of the committee agreed to stand for another year, and there were no volunteers from the floor.

All in all it was wonderful to finally meet up with our club members, and I sincerely hope that we are able to continue into the future, with no more lock-downs.  See you in March!

 

 

 

 

2020 March

For our March meeting we had the privilege of listening to Maria Matser, a former lift operator at Myer Melbourne, the flagship of the chain.   She told us of the good, bad, and ugly patrons who frequented this store, and the demands they made upon the staff. Times certainly were different then.

2020 April to July

June has come and gone, and still no sign of our club meetings resuming.  Sadly here in Victoria I think it will be quite some time before we can once again meet face to face. However, this does not mean we have not been in contact with our members.  Thanks to our very busy committee we have been able to keep in touch with all our members every month either by phone or email and will do so until once again we are allowed to congregate at Mulgrave Country Club. At that time I am sure there will be many interesting tales to tell of how our members coped with the isolation of the past four months.

 

Welcome 2020 Committee

 

 

2020 February

Our February meeting was our AGM and we were fortunate to have our new zone councillor, Hazel Austin chair the meeting. Our president Lynn was re-elected, and gave a report on the past year.  I was surprised to hear how busy our club had been.  There are great plans being made for this year and I am sure we will be just as active. There is a great line-up of guest speakers, and we welcome any women who would like to come along as visitors to see if View Clubs are for them.

We were also informed that we now sponsor 7 children in the Smith Family’s Learning For Life Program.
