APRIL NEWSLETTER 2018
Hi everyone. The April concert has been and gone and we are nearly half way through the year. What a fine debut by
the songbook under the direction of Chrissy Toms. Members also enjoyed our guests on the night, from Levin -Fine and Mellow. Together with all the other performers it was an enjoyable night. A special thanks to those that helped clear tables and do dishes
after supper, it certainly was appreciated by Christine.
GISBORNE and TARADALE RAID – 21ST TO 25TH SEPT 2018. Raiding party consist of 39 members, with 5 members
not on the coach, making their own way for various reasons. Accommodation 21st and 24th is at the Bluewater Hotel, Ahuriri Napier. The Waterbar restaurant is on site and they will provide
a meal on Friday at 5pm. Cost $25. Two courses with limited choices. If you are happy with the deal, then we could repeat on the Monday. Accommodation 22nd and 23rd is at the Pacific
Harbour Motor Inn, cnr Reads and Pitt Street Gisborne. This Motor Inn is right in town and is surrounded by restaurants and a New World supermarket is next door. With our concert being at 2pm on the Sunday and Gisborne not being able to provide a meal they
have asked us to dine at the Game Fishing Club (which is within walking distance of the Motor Inn and for those that are not to steady on their feet, there is a courtesy van available) and the Gisborne members will join us. So now I urge those that have not
put some money into the raid account to do so to secure your seat. The club has to front by the end of May with a non-refundable deposit, so let’s play our part in bringing this raid together and easy for our Treasurer Peter. The rooming
lists for both of our accommodations, will be available at May concert, so take a look and if you have any concerns see me and I will look at it.
