Day Programme Activities
Heather says…Wonderful interesting speakers have joined us, at Day Programme, and we have done a couple of really noteworthy trips.
We attended the Tea & Tunes Concert at the Bowl of Brooklands, a delightful afternoon of music and edible treats, a favourite!
Whilst the summer was still so good, we hosted our annual Garden Party here at Te Rangimarie - everyone donned their best bonnet and bowler, enjoying a delicious finger buffet whilst listening to excellent live Country music provided by Lynn, Paddie, Anne & Colleen.
AmeriCarna stopped by with 4 very handsome cars - several of our group went for a “hoon” around town, some went twice! We had Peter Galvin join us for a St Patrick’s Day Celebration and jig with his great selection of musical instruments.
Guests included; Allan Stancliff - Wetlands Taranaki, Michael Jordan - Taranaki Alpine Club who gave a very appealing talk on Winter Climbing in Alaska, Ian Calloway-Artist, joined us for portrait sessions, June Moseley - Taranaki Welsh Society, Anthea Stayt Contemporary Artist and Sculptor brought in some amazing samples of her very colourful work.
Recently we have been enthused to meet Jill Hingston - The Herpetological Society- Lizards & Geckos, Arun Chaudhri - Taranaki Chamber of Commerce CEO, Denis Putt-Area Co-Ordinator for Greyhounds as Pets and what lovely dogs they were too! Pennie Sands joined us from Envirofur and taught us all about possum fur and the many products they make out at their factory, so warm!
There is plenty more to look forward in the coming months ahead too.
