Day VIEW Club Celebrates 50 years
The Day VIEW Club of Orange recently celebrated their 50 years in operation last week, gathering for a catered lunch, and get together.
VIEW is the only National Women’s Organisation that is solely focused on supporting and advocating for education of disadvantaged young children.
Orange VIEW Day Club President, Andrea White said, “I have been a member for 33 years, I joined initially because I needed a focus in life and a friend told me to come to VIEW, since then I’ve never looked back. It’s a great way to support children.. people ‘can’ make a difference one by one, by me coming to VIEW that’s my contribution.”
“It’s a great way to support children”
Currently, the Club sponsors three Smith Family Learning for Life students and is actively involved in fundraising activities to raise donations for The Smith Family programs.
“We have communication with children that we sponsor, though for privacy sake we don’t know who they are. When we send them things like birthday cards etc., they will send us back a letter in reply, but they don’t put their full name.”
The club meets on the last Friday of each month at the Orange Ex-Services’ Club in the Tobruk Room for a meal and to listen to guest speakers. “We are always open to new members, so please get in touch today and come and see what it's all about.”
