Bargara and District Mixed

FOR a number of years now our Club has held an annual Car Rally, not a race but driver and navigator following a long list of clues to get us to a final destination. Janet and Phil prepared our route and hidden questions and Phil waved the cars off from the Bargara Basin at three minute intervals. Wandering through back roads we circled through the Bundaberg Port and Burnett Heads where it was suggested we take a break for coffee and view the local art. Then it was getting lost on the Hummock before returning to Bargara and finishing at The Berries Café for a good earned rest.

There were no divorces although some teams were a little strained, points were tallied as we all enjoyed lunch. Our Club meets on the second Wednesday of the month at Bargara Golf Club, 9.30am for 10am. Phone Ray on (07) 4154 7775.

WE ARE preparing Christmas gift bags for Myriam House residents. They will be presented to our guest speaker from Myriam House at the November lunch meeting at The Clubhouse. The bags themselves were made by the Fraser Coast View Club Community Crafters; the toiletry items all donated by the View Club members and friends.

Inside the bags recipients will find toiletries such as soaps, toothpaste and brushes, shampoo and conditioner, hand cream, sanitisers, combs, face washers. Myriam House, Hervey Bay, is a refuge for people facing crises in their lives whether they are mentally ill or escaping from an unbearable home life. Fraser Coast VIEW Club has an ongoing commitment to support such local endeavours. Making the bags has been an ongoing concern for the Crafters, while VIEW meetings have regular calls for the toiletries, ready to gift them to the needy at Christmas time.

This year, committee members enjoyed a shared lunch then spent a very productive few hours packing the bags in readiness for the November meeting. Phone Dianne on 0409 270 712.

MEETINGS and luncheon are always the second Monday of each month at the Club House, Tooth Street, Pialba from 10.30am and usually includes a Guest Speaker. Monthly socials are on the forth Monday at various venues from 9.30am.

We had an adventurous social outing in October with a trip to Vintners Secret Vineyard on the outskirts of Childers. With a full bus and carpooling approx. thirty members of our club enjoyed the day and lunch at the Vineyard with plenty to see from meandering through the garden and who can forget the huge pig happily wallowing in his mud bed. Yes, the vine was sampled by our wine lovers.

Our popular trading table continues to be very popular with books, plants and many knick knacks to browse and continually raising funds for the Smith Family and our learning for life students. New or interested ladies are always welcome to join our club. Phone Mary on (07) 4128 3908.
