We celebrated July with a mid-winter afternoon tea for all our members and the food this year was provided by the committee. The spread was awesome, especially the Limo pizza (a meter long) donated by Linda Anderson.

It was also special that we could celebrate with Sybil Gardner her 104th Birthday. Bob and Chrissy presented a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the RSA and our section also gave her a lovely basket of assorted soft chocolates. A little birdie told us that she loves chocolates.

The rest of this month has been arranging our raffle display which I must say looks pretty awesome. Don’t forget to get your tickets from the bar for the draw on Friday 6th August after the Ode. If your number comes up you have a choice of one of the items from the display. Good luck to you all.

 

Housie every 2nd Wednesday. Starting at 1.30pm August dates are 11th, and 25th. Anyone can come along, even bring friends with you.

We welcome new members to our Section, give us a try. Come along as a visitor, give me a call and I will assist you.

Oops short month, shortest day and for me short memory. We had a very interesting speaker at our monthly meeting for June.

Joanna, who spoke about her life having Dyslexia.  Joanna plays the guitar, is singer/songwriter, author, and a playwright, has written 8 plays and also a short film for which she received an award. Joanna said Dyslexia can be either a gift or a curse but for her it was a gift.

We are well underway with our Monster Raffle and will be displaying a few tempting goodies to get you excited and with lots more to come so it will be “watch this display grow”. The proceeds from this raffle allows us to provide donations to some of our volunteer services in our local community and also assist our own RSA with projects for the benefit of all our members.

The Tickets will be on sale at the Bar from Friday 3rd July and will be draw on Friday 6th August

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.
