From the MANZA President

President’s Message – December

I hope you have all made plans to spend Christmas with family and friends.  I cannot believe how quickly 2017 has flown by.

What a year it has been since becoming President of MANZA.  I want to thank the MANZA committee and Lucille for all their support and a very big thank you to May Thornton for her continuing guidance and support since handing over the reins to me.

The MANZA Melbourne Cup was a fun day and big congratulations to all the lucky winners on the day.  Likewise, the MANZA Charity Bazaar and Movember Drinks Night were also a huge success.

Our Christmas functions are upon us with the Christmas Lunch on the 12th December and combined Christmas Drinks on the 14th December at the New Zealand High Commissioner’s Residence.

January starts with a bang with Australia Day and Waitangi Day at Out of Africa on Sunday the 28th.  It will be a fun family day.

I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
