 Week's Parting Thought:

"Education requires a learner and a learner enabler.  We become the learners through our lively and interesting discussions and through listing to others.  We become the enablers through, among other things, the exchange students we sponsor, RYLA, Innovative Young Minds (IYM), the Dictionaries In Schools and Duffey books we provide to primary schools.  We are very lucky and privileged to be a part of such a positive group." ~ Annette Ruck
Community & Member Activity
Parkinson Collection
A huge thank you to all who were able to give us some of their time last weekend.  I believe that the decision to change collection points to Countdown from the Mall was correct, so thanks very much to High Street's Countdown.
Christ Church Cottage Museum
Many of you will be familiar with the Christ Church at 73 Eastern Hutt Road Taita.  Those who built this were people of remarkable courage and fortitude, who after some very hard times which accompanied their journey and arrival.

Fishing Experience to Remember
I was invited to join a 9 person party for a 5-day fishing trip into the Fiordland National Park on the launch Legacy.  It was 20 years since I was in the area tramping and shooting and was keen to visit once again and check out the fishing.
