President Cheryl's Message
Hi everyone
Great chat over dinner last week. Click here... to view the list of activities we came up with at the end of dinner. I will put them into a table, and leave them at the welcome desk. Please put your name alongside one you would like to help organise. We need to resurface from a horrible three years from many angles. There’s something here for everyone. Some can happen on a Tuesday night, others on weekends. Good to go places other than the Club.
Next week it’s Richard Spackman from the Aoraki Foundation. We’ve had them speak before. Richard is new as their CEO and has influenced a whole new direction for them. It will be interesting to get the update.
Yours aye

Kindling Chopping Sat. 15th April.
You are invited to come to a kindling woodworking bee on Saturday 15th April, starting at 9 am and finishing at 12 noon.  The location is a shed (the sign above the sliding door is 'STORE 2) on LHS of Hayes St (when coming from the wharf end).
We have boxes of wood to cut into kindling. We need people with tomahawks and some people to stack boxes with the cut kindling.
If you are able to help please email me by clicking here... (if you have not already) so that we can organise numbers and morning tea.
As always a good morning tea will be provided.

Editors Humour
On an Electrician's truck:

"Let us remove your shorts."

On a Plumber's truck:

"Don't sleep with a drip. Call your plumber."

At a Car Dealership:

"The best way to get back on your feet – miss a car payment."

Outside a Muffler Shop:

"No appointment necessary. We'll hear you coming."


In a Veterinarian's waiting room:

"Be back in 5 minutes. Sit. Stay."
