Acknowledgement to Wonderful Members

At our 2019 Annual meeting we were able to thank three special ladies for their work on the committee over many years. They took on many positions throughout that time. What a great contribution Beaty, Marna and Fran have made to the Oakleigh Evening VIEW Club. They each received a Certificate of Appreciation to acknowledge their fantastic work. 


Welcome to 2019

Fabulous lunch with fabulous ladies from the VIEW Club!! Great way to catch up after the festive season.

Fun September

Another great night at VIEW club. Fantastic speaker, James Nicolas (pictured below) spoke about why he wrote The Mystery of Fairyland, Kew. Many of us wore wings, tiaras or waved wands for the occasion!!!



Tiaras and wands abound



New members are Welcomed

The Oakleigh Evening VIEW club welcomed two new members, Loreta and Jo, last night. It was great to give them their membership badges. 

Our guest speaker Joan, from Mercy Ships, recounted her experiences when volunteering on the ship when it was in Libya. 

Our members were amazed to see the doctors’ work in restoring very damaged people back to a normal life. The ship stays in the same place for 6 months and over that time the doctors truly perform miracles. 




2018 Soup Luncheon

The Members of the Oakleigh Evening VIEW Club enjoyed meeting for their annual Soup Lunch. Just a social occasion where people mingle, catch up or find new friends.







Zone VB02 Presidents



The presidents of Zone VB 02 had a delightful dinner with Jan Roberts our National President.  It provided an opportunity to share ideas about how our VIEW clubs sponsor their Learning For Life students through the Smith Family. 



24th Birthday Celebrations

At Oakleigh Evening we celebrated our 24th birthday with a Nursery Rhyme theme,  which was a great success.

Irene Webb was presented with her 20 year badge. While Dawn, Patricia and Ann received their name badges. 

We played games, sang songs plus gave away lots of raffle prizes. 

What a great way to raise money for our 5 Learning For Life students!!
