Welcome everyone to October’s newsletter. Last month we welcomed two new members to our club, Debi Thomson and Toni Hunt whom you can all read about a bit further down. Well done to Anna Hornby who was our MC at September’s dinner meeting what a fantastic job she did. Thank you to Rebecca Treeby and Glenny Lewis for speaking, what very different and amazing journeys you have both had. It was wonderful to hear from two of our newer members and a big thank you to Maree Tong Millinery for sponsoring.
Anita and Anna worked hard on organizing our Meet the Candidates night which was a huge success with over a 180 people attending. Thank you to the whole team who made the night run smooth, our time keepers Vivien and Tara, our MC Anita and Anna, Helen manned the front desk and kept track of the candidates and thank you to our photographer Marissa, you can find the photos Marissa took on our website in the gallery. https://www.bpwhawera.org.nz/meet-the-candidates-september-2019gallery-125574.html
