Grafton VIEW…not a camera club

VIEW is on the lookout for women whose New Year resolution is to improve their social life and give back to the community. No, it is not a camera club! VIEW stands for Voice, Interests & Education of Women. It offers a network for women of all ages to connect with the community, to enjoy social activities, develop lasting friendships and at the same time provide long term educational support for Australian children in need.

At the February AGM meeting a new committee was established, the office bearers’ badges distributed, and photo taken of the incoming committee. President is Faye Stone; vice president Betty Caldwell; secretary Helen Smith; assistant secretary Vorna Cooper; delegate Merelle Trill; treasurer Helen Cashel; assistant treasurer Norma Melino; program officer Sandra Simpson and Suzanne Gibson, publicity officer Jeanette Calvi.

The next monthly social outing will be for a morning tea at 10am on Wednesday March 17 to be held at the White House in Prince Street, Grafton. We are always looking for women of all backgrounds and ages to join us, and we look forward to welcoming new faces at our next monthly meeting.

The next Grafton VIEW Club meeting will be held on Tuesday March 23 at the Grafton District Services Club Mary Street, commencing at 10.30am. So, do come along and enjoy friendship, a yummy luncheon & an interesting guest speaker.

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

See you there!
