East Hills VIEW club ready for busy first meet

THERE won’t be a Christmas in July celebration at Parliament House this year but East Hills VIEW Club members are thrilled to be getting their meetings back underway after a three-month break

Membership of VIEW (Voice, Interests and Education for Women) is suitable for anyone interested in meeting regularly, establishing friendships, engaging in social outings and contributing to the valuable work undertaken by the Smith Family, particularly in the Learning for Life program which assists disadvantaged students with their educational needs.
Joining in 2015, program officer Bev Cheal said East Hills VIEW club reached its 59th anniversary in June, while VIEW Australia turned 60.
“All the big celebrations have been postponed till next year and our outings probably will be limited to local restaurants and clubs for the rest of the year,” Mrs Cheal said.
“When I joined it was just for the social aspect which didn’t disappoint as I was able to reconnect with so many women from over the years.
“I didn’t know about the fundraising for The Smith Family but it is very rewarding; we sponsor two students who are doing well and send us thank-you cards which is nice.
“We also contribute stationery to the Learning for Life program and help in any other ways we can.
“For example, one of members is also with Rotary and she was knitting squares for orphaned lambs last year so we got on board with that too.”
With 45 members already booked for their July 20 meeting from 10.45am at Revesby Workers’ Club, Mrs Cheal said it was a good sign that everyone was keen to get back together.
