The first 2019 meeting of the East Hills VIEW Club was held on Monday February 18 at Revesby Workers club. The meeting was attended by 46 members and guests.
The committee and members are looking forward to another successful year in our fundraising efforts for disadvantaged students in conjunction with the Smith Family and our very pleasant social gatherings and outings.

The members of East Hills VIEW Club undertook their annual stationery drive at their monthly meeting on Monday October 15 2018. Adding up to several hundred dollars of a wide variety of goods, this collection will be delivered to Plumpton Public School. This disadvantaged school in Western Sydney is supported through the Smith Family’s Learning for Life programme. These goods will be used in facilitating that programme as many of the students involved are unable to purchase them for themselves.
The members are pleased to contribute each year in this small way. We are always interested to see what is donated to assist in a small way to improve the educational outcomes for the students involved.
View (Voice, Interests and Education for Women) is a national club with members from all backgrounds who meet regularly to engage in social activities and outings, with a view to forming new friendships as well as supporting the Smith Family. We raise finds through our monthly lunches and small fees for activities.
We sponsor an individual student who has been identified by her school as needing support. We look forward to her letters and cards and we follow her academic progress with interest. In addition to the funding support, we send her vouchers and cards at Christmas and Easter and also for her birthday. This is a most gratifying initiative.

The East Hills VIEW Club were on hand to support the Converge Concert. The Converge Concert is an initiative sponsored by the Smith Family and Westpac which enables students from disadvantaged schools in Western Sydney to form choirs and perform at the Conservatorium. They sing without music being played. It is a wonderful experience for them and the audience.
On Monday June 18 2018 the ladies of East Hills VIEW Club celebrated the 57th birthday of their club with a gala lunch at Revesby Workers Club. The committee had chosen a ‘regal’ theme for this year. Many members embraced the theme and cape with tiaras, long gloves and dressed in purple. One member even wore a long purple cloak with a 9fake0 ermine collar.
A great day was had by all. In addition to the lunch and delicious birthday cake, there was entertainment, raffles and even a book sale to boost their coffers.
For anyone interested in joining a wonderful group of ladies who, through their events help support the Smith Family and are driven by the mission of creating social change in Australian communities by empowering women to have their voices on issues of importance for the future wellbeing of Australian society, can call Bev on 9771 5457 or visit www.view.org.au for further information.
