Dates for your diary
Wed 1 Dec, 11 for 11.30 Christmas luncheon at Northmead $32 for 2 course meal, wear red/green
Wed 19 Jan, 10.30 NBC chat and coffee and/or lunch
We are in the process of finding a new venue that will take a function for under 30, so until we can find a suitable meeting room, we continue to have informal meetings on the first of the month at NBC. If you are unable to attend on the first Wednesday of the month please send apology to Janette or Lorraine. Note from one of our sponsored children, Hawraa: “Year 7 is challenging but also fun, I have caught up on all my work and doing so well in school. Thank you for contacting me. I wish you nothing but the best. From Hawraa.
While still in lockdown because of Covid-19, there have been no face-to-face meetings, but as vaccination levels increase, there is hope for increasing relaxion of the restrictions. In the meantime it would be nice if we could meet together on zoom on our usual function day – the third Wednesday. Covid vaccination numbers are looking good, perhaps a face-to-face meeting November or December?🤞

Wednesday 20 October 11 am– Zoom get-together with our “Covid uncut” hairstyles! We’ll take a photo to put in our next newsletter that will be useful to go into our archives! Attached are some basic instructions for setting up with a computer an iPhone or iPad,or an Adroid phone or tablet. There are about nine members without computers, so it would be nice if some members confident with Zoom could let them just listen in to the discussion by connecting with them with your phone on “speaker”.
Making a Difference Awards
Two of our treasured members have received a “Making a Difference” award in 2021. Congratulations to Pat and Maureen. Thanks go to our Delegate, Janice, for organising their nominations.
Making a Difference Awards
Pat has managed the Trading Table for over 20 years enabling the Parramatta VIEW club to sponsor Learning for Life Students and their activities.
She stores donated items at her home, prices them and brings the goods each month to set up the Trading Table. She also makes library bags and collects items for the LfL learning clubs. Pat’s commitment to this role demonstrates her to be caring and a supportive member in helping disadvantaged children.
Making a Difference Awards
Maureen has been a member of Parramatta VIEW for nearly 37 years. During this time she has gone above and beyond the VIEW member expectations and clearly demonstrates being supportive and caring. Over the years Maureen has contributed her time to support the Trading Table, and has also supplied many knitted items for sale. She has continued to support children by knitting items for the Children’s Hospital. Maureen continues to knit blankets and floor mats for the Learning for Life students.
