ON Monday, 16 November 2020, the Bellinger Valley VIEW Club celebrated an End-of-Year luncheon at the Thora Hall.
Many of us hadn’t seen one another since last March when the Covid-19 lockdown prevented us from meeting.
It was very special to be together once more, celebrating three of our members’ achievements.
Phyllis Smith was presented with a 30 year member badge by Gina Troy, while our President Gwynneth Denner was given a beautiful bouquet of flowers to celebrate her special birthday, and Jean Bird was presented with an Australian native plant to congratulate her on becoming an Australian citizen.
We had our own masquerade, voting on which mask was the prettiest or the most Christmassy!
Congratulations to the winners.
The Lucky Christmas Hamper winner was Sydette Anderson.
We enjoyed a traditional Christmas lunch and Christmas cake afterwards.
It was a wonderful day in a beautiful setting.
Thanks to all who made it possible.
