Chance to hon­our loved ones

Matamata Chronicle - - News - A PA sys­tem and some­one who knows how to use it, and other help is still needed. Con­tact Rex­ine by Au­gust 12 on 021 477 089 or at rex­ine.hawes@gmail.com

Daf­fodil Day co-or­di­na­tor and Bal­loons of Re­mem­brance or­gan­iser Rex­ine Hawes is de­lighted with the sup­port she has re­ceived dur­ing Daf­fodil Day and Bal­loons of Re­mem­brance prepa­ra­tions.

Both events are in Mata­mata on Fri­day, Au­gust 30. Rex­ine said there will still be a Daf­fodil Day col­lec­tion in Mata­mata, and it is es­pe­cially sig­nif­i­cant this year as it marks 50 years since its in­cep­tion by the Can­cer So­ci­ety.

Bal­loons of Re­mem­brance is an added event that will give res­i­dents the chance to gather at Rail­side by the Green and re­flect while hon­our­ing loved ones who have lost the bat­tle or are still fight­ing can­cer.

As well as bal­loons and sausages for sale, there will be en­ter­tain­ment, a bal­loon re­leas­ing cer­e­mony, a silent auc­tion and a raf­fle.

Items up for grabs in­clude a patch­work blan­kets do­nated by Bev­erly Petersen and Caro­line Bro­ken­shire, a voucher for a spe­cial oc­ca­sion cake de­signed and made by Jenna Crighton, and much more.
