Polio NZ Waikato Christmas Lunch 2015.

On November 28 we held our Christmas gathering with 19 of us enjoying a delicious meal. Sue entertained us with some pictures of her Pacific sailing adventures.


Waikato Mini Newsletter for Oct – Dec 2015

    ✤    Polio NZ went to the Beehive: The nibbles and drinks at Parliament was well attended, and enjoyed by those who were able to attend. A heart warming response from the invited MP’s was encouraging. and thanks were extended to Catherine Delahunty (Greens party), Barbara Stewart,(NZ 1st) and Paul Foster-Bell (National) who had helped make it all possible.
    ✤    Wellington AGM: The AGM was held, and the changes to the constitution as had been circulated were voted on, and passed.
    ✤    A well deserved Life Membership was awarded to JB Munro.
    ✤    Gordon Jackman was appointed to our first paid role, as National Program Manager. His funding was from a grant, for 6 months, and hopefully will be extended at that time. His tasks are Support, Health Service Provision, Education, and Capacity Building. A tall order, but if anyone can do it, it is Gordon.
    ✤    New Polio NZ Board: Board members for 2016 were elected as follows; President Barry Holland, Vice President Sue Griffin, Secretary Jeanette Aldridge, Treasurer Diane Matthews, Board members Penny Humphreys, Stephen Griffith, Heather Hopson, Susan Kerr, Judy Lawley, and Brian Robinson.
    ✤    Waikato Show: We have applied for a site at the Wellbeing Waikato Show next year April 10 - 12. We have received a grant for the registration and expenses from SPAN Trust for which we are very grateful. We will be asking for volunteers to man the stand. More details later.
