December Lunch Meeting
Eighteen members and family met for a lunch meeting at "Cafe Fresca" where the main item on the agenda was eating. My food was delicious, and I only heard compliments from others. Several members were there who had not been for a long time, and one new member came with his daughter.

Waikato Mini Newsletter for December 2011
  • We have often talked about having a “lunch meeting” as a break from sitting around listening to a speaker. So this time we have arranged for this at Cafe Fresca. We chose a place within a garden centre, so it has a nice atmosphere and is not too expensive. Plan to arrive at 12.30, order your food, and we should be served about 1pm.
  • Last Sunday 13th November Edith and Noel, and Alan & Mary McAllen travelled to Hunterville to attend the launch of a book about the Duncan Family who started the Duncan Hospital for Polio patients. We met many other Duncan polios there.
  • There is a set of Conference DVDs in circulation. Please ask if you would like to borrow them.
  • Our group had a stand at the Waikato Health & Disability Expo on September 16 & 17 at Claudlands Event Centre. About 2,500 people came through the doors. Jean Cotter, Jean Coe, Jack Norton, and Noel & Edith Morris took turns at manning the stand, handing out literature, and talking with people. We contacted a handful who either had polio, or have relatives who did. We even met a couple of members of the Society who don’t regularly attend our meetings. Thanks to all who took part.
