Community & Member Activity

Eve Bao's Bio
Our new member Eve was born into a traditional Chinese family on the South Coast of China, both parents are engineers.  In the 1960s her parents moved to central China Anhui province and took their only child, Eve, with them.  Eve grew up there before moving to New Zealand.
Parting Thought 
Christine Meredith offered us the parting thought.
"A committee should consist of 3 people, two of whom are absent."  (A bloke by the name of Herbert Beerholm Tree apparently said this.)

Report to Assembly.  Monday 20 June 2022
I would like to start this report by paying tribute to David Wilson, a totally committed member of this committee, who was always keen to offer new ideas and very supportive of all initiatives.  We miss him dearly.  Other members of the committee were Robin Aitken, Mike Fackney, Annette Ruck, Paddy Wells and myself.
