Grafton VIEW Celebrates 54th Birthday

The Grafton District Services Club was transformed into the spirit of the “Roaring Twenties” at the VIEW Club’s 54th Birthday celebration.

The room was filled with fashionable “flappers”, and in place of the 1920’s Jazz Singers, VIEW was very fortunate to have Bill Kearns reciting his hilarious bush poetry. Everyone needs a good old laugh!

Elizabeth Birch, the VIEW National Counsellor, was warmly welcomed and she presented three members, Pauline Delaforce, Joy Ford and Vicki Evans, with their badges. The beautifully decorated birthday cake was then cut by Elizabeth, Pauline and Joy, and shared around the decorated Jacaranda tables. There were many Tombolas, and lucky door prizes distributed to gleeful winners, after which Norma Melino thanked Elizabeth Birch with a gorgeous floral arrangement.

The next meeting at the Grafton District Services Club will be at 10.30am on Tuesday November 23. By coming along, you will meet new friends, renew the old ones, and your participation will ultimately support a child’s education, and break the cycle of disadvantage.

Please phone Vorna no later than the Friday before the meeting. This is for catering purposes. Contact is 6642 4719.

See you there.
