Report form RSA Women’s Section for May.

Pauline Hirst our President welcomed members to our monthly meeting.

Pauline thanked all those who assisted with Poppy Day collections and catering with Joss Meyers for Anzac Day.

During our General Business a member asked a very interesting question as to why the RSA graves were out at Kaipara Flats.

Noeline Price-Quedley gave a brief reply, which I found very interesting. I asked her to put pen to paper regarding this and hope you will take the time to read her report. Thank you Noeline for taking time out to give us this information.

Our speaker for the month was Jill Cline who was part of the Auckland Library for 10 years and now is at our local Library. These day’s libraries offer so much more than exchanging books. Using your library card you can down load E Books, Netflix, stream on line movies and access magazines. You can book a librarian for personal tutoring on how to access the services available. Also a drop and collect service for those who aren’t mobile.  It costs nothing to obtain a library card, just a visit to our local library.

 

We welcome new members to join our Ladies Section, you can come as visitor first, you never know you may already meet up with old friends and also make new ones.

 

We host Housie every 2nd Wednesday. Starting at 1.30pm June dates are 2nd, 16th and 30th. Anyone can come along, even bring friends with you.
