We welcomed our members back on November 5, after not having met since August.
The meal we enjoyed was very tasty and catching up with the ladies after such a time was very welcome. Because of the limit of members we only had 20 present with four apologies.
Our thoughts and prayers go to the families of June Davies and Helen Routley who recently passed away; they were both long time members of VIEW and will be sorely missed.
Our special congratulations go to Margaret and George Walcott on the birth of their great granddaughter Ella Janelle who arrived in September.
We didn't have a guest speaker, just a day for catching up with those we have not been able to see since COVID lockdown.
Three new members were welcomed - Helen Wilkins, Helen Scott and Belinda Swan, who received their members badges.
Carol Olsen was also presented with her 40 year badge, having joined Goulburn Evening View Club in 1981 and transferring to Goulburn Day View Club in 2013.
We have welcomed 10 new members so far this year and our thanks go to our president Margaret Gooch and to other members who assisted.
Each member today received a packet with "Sunny Smile" sunflower seeds generously donated by Kayleen Tremble to bring a bit of fun to our lives. It'll be interesting to see what they're like when they bloom.
Raffles were won by Margaret Thompson, Jenni Aubrey and Gloria Bell. Robyn Bolin, Barbara Creese, Judy Coe and Cathy King enjoyed birthdays this month.
The lucky door numbers were won by Brenda Writer and Lee Laidlaw and the lucky program won by Margaret Thompson. The Lucky Number draw was not won. Our Monster Christmas Raffle will be postponed to December 2022 due to COVID 19 and the inability to sell our tickets with a greater return.
Just a reminder to keep card fronts from greeting cards you no longer want so we can give them to Sr Dawn, who re-cycles these with her card crafts. Thank you!
Christmas Luncheon will be December 2 at 11am for 11.30am start at the Goulburn Soldiers Club. President Margaret to speak with Chef Paul regarding the menu. We will have a Trading Table, Raffles and Lucky Door Prizes and Lucky Number Draw. Please contact Margaret Gooch (02) 4822 1859 or 0409 904 917 before 7pm the Monday before the luncheon if you wish to attend. You can also text or email your acceptance to email@example.com.
As we are having a Trading Table, if you have anything you would like to donate just contact Joan Scott and let her know what you can bring. If you are unable to speak with Joan, just let Maree DeBritt, Margaret Gooch or Jenni Aubrey know and we are happy to receive any items in good condition.
VIEW Clubs of Australia is a leading women's organisation and support network that empowers women to have their voices heard on issues of importance in Australian society. VIEW stands for Voice, Interests and Education of Women. Thousands of women across Australia belong to VIEW.
VIEW is the only national women's organisation solely focused on supporting and advocating for the education of young disadvantaged Australians. It is a non-religious, non-political organisation.
VIEW provides women with the opportunity to meet regularly with other women from all walks of life, establish lasting friends and help disadvantaged Australian children through supporting the work of children's charity, The Smith Family. Education and leadership opportunities are also part of the VIEW offering, in addition to the chance to be purposeful in supporting community need.
VIEW is a valued part of The Smith Family. Through social, community and fundraising activities VIEW members have supported the work of The Smith Family for 60 years.
More than 15,000 members across Australia, VIEW's reach and networks in local communities help to raise awareness and strengthen the impact of the work of The Smith Family.
VIEW is proud to be The Smith Family's single largest community sponsor of Learning for Life Students. Nationally, VIEW members sponsor more than 1,400 disadvantaged students, enabling them to get the most from their education through assistance and support from The Smith Family's Learning for Life program.
We do this because we believe that by helping disadvantaged children succeed at school, we can have a lasting impact on their lives and potential generations to come.
