VIEW CLUBS

VIEW makes a difference in the lives of women by bringing them together, enabling them to create lasting friendships, have fun and contribute to their community in meaningful ways, through supporting the charitable works of The Smith Family. Through strong VIEW networks, women are empowered to achieve new skills, develop confidence and give collective voice to issues of national concern.

WE MEET on the third Friday of each month at the RSL Orchid Room in Mary Street. Entrance fee is $24 which includes a two-course lunch and raffle tickets. We have a guest speaker at each months meeting. New members are always welcome. If attending, phone Christine on 0438 777 501 by the Wednesday before the meeting so your meal can be ordered.

VIEW members raise over $1 million annually for the Smith Family and sponsor more than 1300 Learning for Life students.

FRASER COAST CHORUS

THE chorus is a not-for-profit ladies group with limited resources and as well as singing for our own pleasure, we support the community by taking our songs to retirement villages, aged care facilities and to other organisations as a way of enhancing their awareness of music and feeling the pleasure that singing brings. Fraser Coast Chorus is a ladies group who sing beautifully harmonised music in a wide range of genres and love the joy that music brings.

For those who enjoy singing and are looking for friendship and fun, we welcome new members. We practise every Monday in Tavistock Street, Torquay, Hervey Bay between 6-8.30pm. For details, phone Angie Lewis on 0467 963 778 and go to the website frasercoastchorus.org.au for information about the chorus.
