Batemans Bay Evening View Club news

The Batemans Bay Evening View Club had an enjoyable meeting on Wednesday 14 June 2023. Our meeting was held at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club and our numbers were down a bit due to cold weather and winter. We all enjoyed a delicious meal and were to enjoy a guest speaker speaking on dementia but unfortunately they were called away to a family emergency.

Instead of our guest speaker we got to know some of our newer members telling a bit about themselves and their lives and how they had become involved with View. It was a bit of fun and thanks to Jill, Gail, Sue and Janice.

President Julie presented our newest member Jill with her badge and then presented a birthday chocolate to our birthday girl for the month of June – Gail.

Also in May we had a fundraiser with the BBQ at Bunnings on Sunday 21 May 2023 and this has provided another boost to our fundraising for The Smith Family Learning for Life Program for 2023. It will go toward supporting 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 monthly meetings are held at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club. The next meeting of the Batemans Bay Evening View Club will be held on Wednesday 12 July 2023 at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club 6.00 pm for 6.30 pm at a cost of $25.00. 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. For all enquiries please contact Julie on 0408 215 553 or Anita on 0447 114 198.

VIEW stands for Voice, Interests and Education of Women and supports the Smith Family and the Learning for Life Program and helping young Australians in need to get the most out of their education. The Batemans Bay Evening View Club was established in 1997 for women interested in meeting regularly with other women from all walks of life, providing them with an outlet to help others, as well as establishing lasting friendships and contributing to the community.
