Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By KRIS DANDO

The Ti­tahi Bay re­u­nion event is on track for Easter week­end, with or­gan­is­ers call­ing for last reg­is­tra­tions.

Or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee chair­man Una Hyland says the venue is locked in, along with ac­tiv­i­ties for the week­end. The base will be the North Welling­ton in­door bowl­ing club at Onepoto Do­main, which will host the meet-and-greet on March 29 and a din­ner the fol­low­ing evening.

‘‘Things have moved on really well, we had a fan­tas­tic get-to­gether on Wai­tangi Day at the [Ti­tahi Bay] bowl­ing club, with peo­ple shar­ing mem­o­ries on grow­ing up in the Bay.

‘‘We’re go­ing to run some of those on a slideshow dur­ing the din­ner. The or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee have done a lot of work, in­clud­ing sort­ing out the hall dec­o­ra­tions, and we’re really pleased how ev­ery­thing’s come to­gether. It’s go­ing to be an awe­some time.’’

Schools and busi­nesses have ex­pressed an in­ter­est in the event, Ms Hyland says, while the golf and bowl­ing clubs will be busy over the week­end.

Reg­is­tra­tions have topped 160 so far, with at­ten­dees coming from Aus­tralia and fur­ther afield. The main ac­tiv­ity on March 30 will be a his­tory tour through the sub­urb, with Bob Cater talk­ing about places of sig­nif­i­cance.

A large paint­ing by Bay artist Mag­gie Ha­zle­wood will be raf­fled at the din­ner, then on Easter Sun­day there will be a me­mo­rial ser­vice on the beach and a fi­nal farewell at the surf club.
