Linda & Ray's 10th Wedding Anniversary Celebration
Ray & Linda celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary at the Edgewater Resort in Rarotanga recently. Congratulations to you both.
Enliven Dementia Garden Update 
Annette provided this update regarding the Enliven Dementia Garden Update
Barrie Littlefair has made a replacement seat at the Days Bay Men's Shed for the dementia garden at Enliven.  He has done such a good job with it.  Barrie and Tony Cornelius delivered it back to the unit on Wednesday morning and my Ian and I helped carry it in and put it in place.  It looks great and the plants we planted before Christmas are all doing well thanks to the rain we have had. Great work to all involved!
Te Omanga Hospice Golf Tournament
I am working on the allocation of duties for the TOMH golf tournament next Friday 24 February and will contact members who will be assisting on the day shortly. Thank you to all those members who have offered to assist.  It will be a great day.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact either Brian or Jan.
