Maclean VIEW Club

What a lovely day we had in Iluka for our September VIEW Club luncheon. Many thanks to the Iluka ladies for organising the raffles and lucky door prizes.

Our guest speaker was Kerry Murphy who is a massage therapist. She certainly motivates her clients with a combination of  movement and exercise, and strongly recommends that we all exercise as we get older – we must live more actively!

The VIEW Clubs of Australia National Convention was held at the Sunshine Coast this year in September. Apart from the inspirational speakers that attended the Convention, delegates also heard from 19 year-old Sunshine Coast musician Mason Hope. Raised by his grandmother Lisa from the age of one, Mason shared how support from The Smith Family changed the course of his life. He started going to a homework club in Maroochydore when he was in Grade 4, where he received help with his homework. He was then accepted into The Smith Family’s ‘Learning for Life’ program. Now that he is older he has fully realised how much this program has impacted his life.
