Do you love chocolate?

YES! Who doesn’t?

Do you feel the guilt when you eat chocolate? YES!

Well not any more ladies, all you need to do is eat dark chocolate. That’s right.

The lucky ladies who attended Yamba Evening VIEW Club’s August meeting had the pleasure of sampling local artisan chocolatier Dean Agic’s beautiful hand-made chocolates.

Not only did they enjoy his delicious chocolates they learnt so much. Dark chocolate is good for you. How good is that? As you can imagine Dean was a hit with the ladies.

A big thank you Dean.

Now putting that good news aside, we have more good news.

We are excited to announce Yamba Evening VIEW club has made the decision to sponsor another student. That increases our sponsorship to eight. We did not make this decision lightly. Our treasurer completed a feasibility study to ensure we can sustain an eighth student, then we gave each member an opportunity to have a voice and vote.

As a valued part of The Smith Family, VIEW members are changing the lives of young Australian children. Last year The Smith Family sponsored 57,847 students through their Learning for Life program. Our club’s sponsorship plays a small part in supporting disadvantaged children. Collectively VIEW Club’s across Australia sponsor more than 1,400 disadvantaged students.

Our next meeting is our club’s 27th Birthday, Thursday September 2 at the usual place the Yamba Bowlo from 6pm for a 7pm start. 

If you are new to town and would like to join us, please give us a call. Guests are always welcome.

Some more good news is numbers are no longer limited as we are dinning in the auditorium to comply with COVID health orders.

Bookings are now open and close Wednesday August 25 at 4pm.

Please ensure you contact Marlene (treasurer and meals coordinator) on 0400 528 846 if you or your guest have any dietary requirements.

May your day be filled with hugs, peace and of course chocolate.
