Learning for Life Student Banner.

Our club has been very fortunate to receive a generous donation of a very lovely banner, pictured below, that displays all the names, year of birth and home state of each student.  This information is printed on a surfboard shaped magnet that sits on the banner.

The large pull up banner has been generously donated by Ainslie and Luke from Bellarine Signs, Ocean Grove.

This banner will be displayed at all our meetings and will give our members an opportunity to be more informed of our 15 young students that we all support.

 

Coming Events 2021

The Ocean Grove Evening Club like every other club in Victoria has had to cancel all planned fundraisers and social activities as well as our face to face meetings.  It has been a very difficult  time for all and we all hope that 2022 will be a better year for everyone.

NOVEMBER:

Members are hoping to be able to have our dinner meeting in November, which will also be our Christmas break up.  Plans are well underway for a fun filled night.

Geelong Mums....

Members have donated many bags of donations for this wonderful charity during Anti Poverty Week.

A huge selection of donated goods, including knitted pram rugs, knitted toys, knitted cardigans, new and quality second hand clothing and an  assorted range of toiletries  has been donated.

The generous response from our members will go a long way to replenishing the supplies that Geelong Mums give freely to mothers and babies in need who reside in  Geelong and region.

       

 

 

Ninth Birthday Celebrations

Ocean Grove Evening View Club has recently celebrated it's 9th birthday at the Flying brick Cider House.  A fun night was had by the many who attended with delicious food and music. 

A highlight of the evening was the presentation of 10 year service pins to current members Janet, Sue (apology), Lorra, Jill, Barb, Kerryn, Janice, Pam, Karen, Gayle (apology) Teena (apology), Chris, Sandi (apology) and Margaret.  These 10 Year Award badges were presented by the then Zone Councillor, Mary Fielding.

Meetings

Covid has caused many interruptions to our face to face dinner meetings and our Interest Group activities. We can only hope that future planned events will go ahead and members will stay safe and well.

2021 Easter

Ocean Grove Evening Club has happily resumed it's monthly dinner meetings at The Flying Brick Cider House.  Everyone is happy to be out and about and catch up with each other after so long.   

The year's activities are well underway and hopefully we will be able to resume our monthly dinner meetings and social activities in the very near future.

One of our most successful meetings was the March meeting which was well attended and where we welcomed many prospective members. The theme for the night was Easter and included the drawing of our Easter raffle.  A grand total of $964 was raised which will go a long way to sponsoring another student.  We also had members wear Easter bonnets and had some lovely, creative hats on heads.
