Trust BBQ 2009 (21/03/09)

The greater part in us will never die’


Kia ora tatou,

Our grateful thanks to all the participants for their wonderful “spirit” of fellowship and uplifting stories of their outstanding contributions to our communities, the musicians added that extra ambiance to what was a most enjoyable and relaxing day.

The Trustees/advisory Trustees are fired up for a great year ahead of grant making to our Trusts “Whanau,” and we have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that whatever is thrown at you in dull economic news each of you will rise magnificently to the occasion and keep focused on continuing to deliver excellence in your field of endeavour.

The Trust’s friends were superb- we are so blessed to have such great friends who work so willingly for the cause and provided that star quality to ensure that all our guests were exceptionally well looked after!

Thanks to each of you for being a part of a superb day by each of you making the time to be with us made the occasion “magical”.

May that magic continue on through the whole of 2009!
