Batemans Bay Evening View Club

The last meeting of the Batemans Bay Evening View Club was on Wednesday 12 April 2023 at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club. We had our Meeting and President Julie welcomed three guests. About 18 women enjoyed a delicious meal before sitting back to listen to our guest speaker.

Our guest speaker was Lisa Wadham from Aged Care. Lisa spoke about My Aged Care and other services available to older Australians. Lisa also spoke on ACAT assessment and also the process for registering with My Aged Care. Lisa had information available on these services and also took questions from members. It was an interesting talk and I think that we all learned something. At the end of the talk President Julie presented Lisa with a small gift of appreciation.

Also in April we had a fundraiser with the BBQ at Bunnings on Saturday 8 April 2023 and this has provided a wonderful start to our fundraising for The Smith Family Learning for Life Program for 2023. It was Easter Saturday so we had a very busy day and raised money to support our 6 Learning for Life Students. Bunnings BBQ’s have played a big role in enabling the Batemans Bay Evening View Club to raise the number of students that we support from 3 to 6 students. The Batemans Bay Evening View Club sponsors 6 students fully and 1 student partially (with our Region) and to do this we need to raise about $5000 each year. We also support the Smith Family Toy and Book Appeal each year with about $500.

The next meeting of the Batemans Bay Evening View Club will be held on Wednesday 10 May 2023 at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club at 6.00 pm for 6.30 pm. Visitors and guests are always welcome to come and join everyone and enjoy an evening with women from all walks of life and listening to a great guest speaker. Come along and enjoy a fun night with a good meal, relaxed conversation and a guest speaker. For all enquiries please contact Julie on 0408 215 553 or Anita on 0447 114 198.
