“The Butcherbird Sings” at Yamba Evening VIEW

Who does not love the song of a butcher bird? I certainly do and believe everyone who had the pleasure of attending our June meeting will think of Julie Campbell our guest speaker when they next have the pleasure of hearing a butcherbird sing.

Julie is the author of “The Butcherbird Sings” a memoir of hope and help born from a neurodegenerative disease Parkinsonism (PSP, CBD, MSA). Julie is passionate to shine a light on this little understood disease and her memoir certainly does that. 

It is time to book in for our next dinner meeting Thursday night July 1.  Please get in early. We have 67 members and only 40 seats available due to Covid restrictions. We sold out five days before the cutoff last month, so do not wait if you plan on attending.

Bookings close Wednesday 4pm, June 23 unless sold out prior.

Our next guest speaker will be Jaquie Hinshaw from Yamba Library.  I am sure you will be surprised what services are available at your local library.

Not only do we have a lovely night catching up with VIEW club friends and guests, but attendance at these dinner meetings also raise the funds we need to support our seven students and The Smith Family, Australia’s largest Children’s Charity.
