May 2019


On Thursday 9th May 2019 the Southern Peninsula VIEW Club held a Mothers Day High Tea at the Seahorse Café – Seawinds Community Hub in Capel Sound.  This was followed by a tour of the Seawinds community centre.  The day was a great success and all who attended had a fabulous time.





On Thursday 16th May 2019 the Southern Peninsula VIEW Club welcomed our monthly meeting speaker the author Goldie Alexander.  Goldie spoke about the inspiration for her young adults books and how she aims to show how Shakespeare’s characters and plots still hold relevance for today.  Modern young women and men in contemporary and futuristic settings have replaced the 17th century characters and language.  Her books include Gap Year Nanny (Based upon Macbeth), The Trytth Chronicles (Based upon The Tempest) and Changing History (Based upon Romeo and Juliet).





On Saturday 18th May Southern Peninsula VIEW Club held a very successful Cake and Craft stall at Bunnings Rosebud.   On very short notice the members of the club mobilised and produced some delicious treats, which sold very well to the local community.  Thanks to Bunnings Rosebud for the opportunity for this excellent fundraiser.

April 2019

On Thursday 11th April 2019 the Southern Peninsula VIEW Club welcomed guest speaker Julie Cowan from Search and Rescue Dogs Australia (SARDA) a volunteer not-for-profit organisation that uses dogs to locate survivors.

SARDA search dogs locate survivors by air scenting; they do not track. The dogs are trained to search off lead. They scan the area to pick up the scent of human breath, and then narrow in on the source. Working off lead, they are able to cover large areas very efficiently.

Julie provided an informative and very entertaining presentation on her organisations activities and achievements.  Julie was accompanied by fellow volunteer Kerry Hanson and Tank a fully trained Black Labrador.
