24th Birthday

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!!

Fun Start to 2018 for Oakleigh

Members of the club had a wonderful start to the year, with a beautiful lunch at The Del Mar Cafe in Carnegie on 1st February. We don't find it hard to have a good time!!! There's always lots of laughter and stories to share.

  

 

 

 

 

       

Students

Each year our club presents awards to, two, very hard-working students at a local school.  This is followed by a morning tea with them, and their parents.

The parents are very proud of the improvements their children have made in their education, and we are pleased to acknowledge that achievement.

October Make

The Oakleigh Evening VIEW Club raised $340 at our October meeting. It was a Make, Bake or Grow night where members brought items to be auctioned to raise money for our sponsored students. 

This proved to be heaps of fun with lots of laughs. Items included a crocheted rug, a box of vegetables and lots of yummy slices and cakes.
