Christmas In July

A wet and windy day did not dampen our fun on our day out in Toodyay where we visited a winery and had a delicious morning tea at Noble falls on the way. Followed by a delicious Christmas in July lunch after wandering around Toodyay town.

Afternoon Tea at  Swan Valley 

We were all COVID safe when we took tea in the Swan Valley on one of our friendship days.

 

Helping TSF

Club members have been busy making book bags for the after school students at The Smith Family Midland branch.  Our club also collected lots of stationery for partner schools in our area.

   

Walking into Spring 2020 

 

A cheerful bunch of walkers completed the 5km lap of Yokine Reserve in September. We walked at a comfortable pace and exchanged our news on the way round, and finished with a delicious morning tea.

We asked our children, and grandchildren as well as friends, to return a favour and sponsor us. It was a very successful outing and fundraiser.

 

Lots of cheerful walkers

Living with MS and Research on Medical Cannabis

Jason Jordon, pictured below with Vice President Pam and Program Officer Jo, was a fantastic and energetic speaker. You would not have known he had been suffering MS for quite a few years.

Using prescribed medical cannabis has taken him from just about being in a wheelchair to how you see him now. He now walks, and possibly runs, with no aids or limp. Amazing!!

Welcome Back to 2020 in July

Hooray!!  We held our first meeting back on 14th July at our new premises; the Bayswater Tennis Club.  A bright and spacious room looking out over tennis courts.  It was great to see the many cheerful faces and to hear that no one from our club had fallen victim to the virus. 

Rena, our wonderful president, introduced two new members, Evelyn and Bev, to the meeting and already Evelyn has offered to help out at setting up for our upcoming birthday lunch!

Two more ladies were also welcomed and they stayed behind after the meeting to fill out forms to join us - fantastic, we are growing!

 

New Members Welcomed

Birthday Celebrations

Bayswater City VIEW Club celebrated its 6th Birthday on 13th August at Dianella Community College Hospitality Training Centre where the students supplied a wonderful morning tea. Former LFL student, Shanie Ryan, spoke on how she and her family had benefited from being on the  Learning for Life program.  Shanie has now left school, did some travelling overseas and is now back studying at Curtin University.  Ian Moore spoke on The Smith Family moving forward and we were entertained by Rod Popham on the ukulele.  A very successful and enjoyable morning.

2019 July

Below is a group photo of our members who recently raised the amazing sum of $2,800.00 conducting a "Walk in the Park" .  Members canvassed family and friends to sponsor them for the walk, around the Yokine Park, approximately 5 kilometres.  

The Yokine Bowling Club provided us with a venue to meet and hold our delicious morning tea, which was supplied by members.  Our day was a huge success and enjoyed by all.
