The Clarence Valley VIEW Clubs celebrated International Women’s Day 2019 with a morning tea and lunch, held at the Bowlo Sports and Leisure Yamba, on Friday.

The event which was attended by over 220 ladies was the major fundraiser for the VIEW Clubs of Grafton, Maclean, Yamba Day and Yamba Evening, with proceeds going to the ‘Learning for Life’ scholarship programs through the Smith Family Children charities.

Guest speakers on the day were Karen Curtin from The Smith Family Scholarship Programs, Coffs/Clarence Police District Senior Constable Liz Smith and former Grafton Regional Gallery director Jude McBean.

The program was scattered with entertainment including musical items, dance routines and a wearable art parade, with the crowd showing their appreciation by clapping and singing along.

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
