Usually, we celebrate our birthday during our September meeting, but not this year!

Once again, the COVID-19 virus had the Club change plans.

We reorganised it for October!

So, the theme was "Happy Birthday, VIEW Club!"

The members sang "Happy Birthday" to the entire club.

Plus, we had numerous ladies that were "birthday gals" for both months (me included).

There was a special raffle, too. Members brought various items to be raffled off.

I am certain that all 30 ladies that attended bought tickets. We put our tickets in the plastic containers in front of the donated items.

The money raised all went into the fund to support our Smith Family "Learning for Life" schoolchildren that we sponsor.

Also, members had been requested to wear VIEW colours - a pale green, a pale purple and/or white. It was truly wonderful that everyone wore the colours.

Another reason to be a bit noisy - we all welcomed three new members to the Club.

All women are welcome to join, and help us raise money for our schoolchildren.

Next month, we will be getting dressed-up for the Melbourne Cup, for fun and games!

Then, of course, we get dressed up for Christmas in December.

The first Tuesday of each month is the date.

Book in with Secretary Wendy - 0497 017 495.
