Meet our 2021 Committe


A successful AGM with a new committee sworn in!!

We also raised $360 by people bringing items for a Silent Auction.

Honouring Dot

Our club paid a fitting tribute to Dot who passed away recently. Aged in her 90s Dot was one of our founding members. She always organised the cake stalls each year. In her honour we held “Dot’s Cake Stall” at our March meeting and raised over $340. 



Guest Speaker via Zoom in March 2021

We also held our first guest speaker via ZOOM.


Christmas Celebrations

After Melbourne’s long Lock-down, forty-three members and guests were ecstatic to enjoy the first face to face meeting since February, for our annual Christmas Party!!

Everyone so enjoyed catching up with old friends, welcoming new friends, playing games and just being able to be together. Pass the candy cane was a fun game!! 

The club welcomed two new members by presenting them with their membership badges; as well as welcoming another lady who joined on the night!!




December 2020



Zoom with Julian Mather



In November 2020 

Julian Mather held us all enthralled whilst listening to him on our ZOOM Club meeting last Monday evening.

He told very simply about ordinary people who have done extraordinary things. His book The Second Best Job in the World  is full of stories about his life as an ABC cameraman.



2020 October

After many months of Lockdown it was so good to meet at Warrawee Park this morning!! Eighteen people altogether but we spread out and stayed COVIDSAFE!

Emerging from Lockdown



Oakleigh Evening continues to Thrive

Our September ZOOM meeting last night featured a talk by Mandar Nelson who related her experiences of living with autism.

She was an engaging speaker who gave our members an interesting insight into her “colourful life”. Many questions were asked and answered during and after her talk.

Zooming in September 2020


2020 August Zooming

For the August ZOOM meeting we were lucky enough to have Kate Wengier, a dietitian, as guest speaker.

Kate is the founding member of Foost which has one main mission: to encourage people to eat colourfully, therefore increasing people’s intake of fruit and vegetables; it’s literally that simple.

Her presentation gave us much “food for thought”.







Zooming into July

A ZOOM meeting was held in July; and we were honoured to have Brendan Scott as guest speaker.

He sang songs and told us about his life as an entertainer. We sang along in our own homes to many of the familiar songs he played. 




2020 May

During May Oakleigh Evening held mini meetings, Zoom meetings and, an online auction of items members donated, which raised $265.

People were contacted by phone if they were still in isolation. Staying connected is so important especially at this time.


Lockdown Innovation


Zoom in 2020

Quite an historic occasion.

Our club’s first Zoom video committee meeting. Lots of discussion about how to keep in touch with all our members. We have a phone tree happening for people who are not on social media, or email etc.

Due to the cancelling of the usual monthly meetings as the result of COVID 19, we are going to try and set up mini meetings via video.


2020 February

Great start to Oakleigh VIEW AGM with a full committee receiving their badges of office. The Silent Auction of donated goods raised $126. 

All funds raised go towards the sponsorship of our 6 Learning for Life students through The Smith Family charity.”
