Grafton VIEW celebrates 54th birthday

Members, get ready to party at the end of Jacaranda Week! Come along and celebrate VIEW’s 54th birthday with a ‘Roaring 20’s’ theme.

Unfortunately, because of COVID restrictions, it will have to be a members’ only event.

At the September meeting, Ken Wilson, from Clarence Valley Waste Management Depot, spoke about how the operation works, and how bins should be used wisely in order to reduce the impact on landfill. Ken went on to say that a lot of community lighting is being replaced with LED to reduce energy bills. He also mentioned many more energy saving strategies, which includes conversion of methane gas into carbon dioxide, which will reduce the impact on landfill. Ken very kindly organised a visit for VIEW to the waste management depot on Wednesday October 6, which includes a morning tea.

This month’s raffle was won by Zoe Rowles, and the lucky door prize went to Norma Melino.

The VIEW birthday celebration will be held on Friday November 5 at the Grafton District Services Club, Mary Street, at 10.30am. So, check out your cupboards, and the op shops for your Roaring 20’s outfits, and get that “Charleston” look. The entertainment will be amazing, with Giri Mazzella, who sings and entertains. A good time is guaranteed for all.

Please phone Vorna at 6642 4719 for catering purposes on the Friday before the meeting. See you there.
