Hello whats happening now ?

Another year of successful activities and the year is coming to a close. Let’ s talk about whats going on inside the community and whats about to happen next – our plan and upcoming activities for the year ahead. Firstly, we the committee are looking forward to move on and focus on a positive side to support each other and are committed to continue our service in the community without any doubts. I would like to give thanks to all the people who are involved in all the activities we have this year. I also apologise for the delay of the newsletter and to all the members who didn’ t get one in the last issue. Winter is ended and we are now ready for the summers events. I want to thank Jenny Gutang for a her willingness to join the Miss Philippines New Zealand 2016 but unfortunately Jenny was not able not to participate in the contest due to unexpected illness. By the way our Presentation for Ms. New Zealand Philippines was a successful one. Thank you to all members and the organisers, namely Gemma Evans and Lorin Rowe for their devotion and hard work to make the event a successful one. The feedback was great especially the entertainment part and refreshments also to the committee who are involved well done. Thanks to the Tribal dancers group lead by Gemma, the Basketball Team organised by Joemarie Jungco and the badminton players for participating in Wellington Labour Weekend Fiesta gathering. We also joined the Christmas parade this year, thankfully it was nice weather. Thanks to all the committees and members involved in fundraising, sausage sizzles, garage sales and cash donations and gift baskets the society cannot survive without your willingness and loving support.

We are having a Potluck New Years Eve party this coming 31st of December, starting at 6.00 pm held in New Plymouth Baptist Hall . We would like to invite everyone to come along and join us in celebrating and witnessing the countdown as 2016 departs and makes way for 2017. Please see details on the upcoming activities corner.
