Social distancing was no problem for members who attended the August VIEW Club meeting last Tuesday at the Empire Hotel.
Good food, combined with light entertainment, ensured an enjoyable and relaxing day for those ladies able to attend.
Club Delegate Kate Winders reported to the meeting that the 60 Years of National View celebration event will now be happening sometime in 2021, but the raffle of a beautiful diamond pendant will go ahead as planned.
VIEW Clubs across Australia have a collective membership of over 15,000 ladies.
VIEW is the biggest sponsor of the Smith Family organisation’s ‘Learning for Life’ program, raising over one million dollars annually to support and mentor the educational needs of disadvantaged children.
The Cobar club has received a boost in membership with three ladies joining recently.
Ruth Bradshaw was presented with her membership badge and Bev Anderson’s ‘Coming of Age’ was acknowledged with flowers. The raffle prize went to Barb Bartlett and Kate Winders scored the lucky door prize.
Next meeting will see members fine tuning their research skills to present 50 interesting words about a given country.
This activity will support VIEW’s policy of voice, interest and education for women.—contributed
