Poppy dis­play be­tween clubs

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

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.
