December Lunch Meeting
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.
one of our group's founding members passed away on November 28th. Edith
and I, along with George Willard attended the Memorial Service in
Cambridge. Our sympathies to her husband Ted.
husband of Laura our other founding member, passed away on December
3rd. Our sympathies to Laura.
Waikato Mini Newsletter for December
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.
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.

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.
