Meet Our 2021 Committee

Western Suburbs Thrives in 2021

Our Club has continued to be highly active and productive, with meetings being very well attended; our only hiccup was in April when a COVID lockdown resulted in cancellation of that month’s meeting. Since then, several new members have joined and been warmly welcomed into our club; five new members were presented with membership badges at the June meeting. Each meeting has also attracted a growing number of visitors, with nine (9) joining us for the June meeting!

  

Treasurer, Ros Smith, received a Special Award certificate for her fund raising ideas - quite simple but so effective; coin collection, which has now has raised $1800.00, and containers for change has brought in $240.00. Well done Ros!!  The club payment for our Learning for Life students for 2022 has been sent and received, so next payment not due  until February 2023.

Our Club continues to support Roseworth Child and Parent Centre, and we are currently collecting non- perishable foods at the request of the Centre.  We have had great support from the Post Newspaper, and have had a second article published, focussing on The SMITH FAMILY Winter Appeal. 

2021 is a BIG year as we will be celebrating our 20th Birthday in the latter part of the year, and will keep you posted on the details.  The Committee has this special event well planned and organised!!

Thank you to all members of WSVC for your great work and support this year.

 

 

Interesting Topics and Activities

Our Club does an outstanding job on the social aspects of VIEW, helping us to maintain a positive work-life balance by providing excellent guest speakers as well as a wide range of stimulating outings/activities:

  • Guest Speakers: John Thornton (Regal Theatre), Bret Christian (Post Newspaper).
  • Outings: Blue Lotus Cafe Waldeck Nursery, Guildford Museum,  and Fremantle Army Museum.

Many thanks to Raelene Hoffmann and Jennifer Allen for organising these for our club. 

 

 

 

2021 Begins

Western Suburbs has leapt into 2021 with great energy and enthusiasm! We have held our AGM and the newly elected officer bearers and committee have the year well organised. We have had monthly outings - tour of His Majesty's Theatre,  visit to Guildford Museum and during April we have members attending Rockingham VIEW Club 18th birthday and later in the month members will have a guided tour of WA renovated and renamed Perth  Museum - Bools Bardip..

Our club has made a donation of $600.00 to purchase Joy Spreaders - Reading Resources and Let's Count. We hold regular book sales of materials donated by members and $100.00 raised was spent on Reading Resources.

It looks like being a wonderful year for our club as we support and contribute as a valued part of The Smith Family.
