Poppy display between clubs
A wall display of handmade poppies was this month presented to the Tawa RSA to commemorate Anzac Day.
It was made by members of the Inner Wheel Club of Tawa, and featured handknitted and crocheted poppies in recognition of the significance of Anzac Day.
RSA president John Munson said it would hold pride of place in the clubrooms.
The display represents the Inner Wheel Club of Tawa’s theme – Path of Poppies.
The presentation was followed by an address from New Zealand Army Territorial Force staff sergeant and New Zealand Police senior constable John McGrail.
McGrail’s address was accompanied by a display of photos depicting such places as Gallipoli, Afghanistan, Egypt, the Philippines, Solomon Islands and Antarctica.
His expertise and experience was a highlight of the day for members of the two clubs.
