The Tribune (NZ) - - WELL-BEING -

Sun­day was one of the cold­est morn­ings we have had this win­ter, so ev­ery­one was rugged up for the weather at 7.00 in the morn­ing, in­clud­ing those hearty soles in their con­vert­ibles, some of which had rag­tops but choose to drive with them down, oth­ers didn’t have the choice. Then there were the rest of the con­voy fully en­closed, try­ing to get heaters work­ing and wind­screens de­frosted. We didn’t feel so sorry for those con­vert­ible driv­ers though on our re­turn drive around lunch time, when the sun was shin­ing they were tak­ing in the spec­tac­u­lar views from their open-tops gaz­ing up at the beau­ti­ful snow cov­ered ranges. This month was our an­nual Hos­pice Drive, and a col­lec­tion made by our mem­bers off the Aro­hanui Hos­pice wish list were do­nated. Clare Ran­dal from Hos­pice ac­com­pa­nied us on this drive as did many of our mem­bers who are vol­un­teers at Hos­pice. We trav­elled out through Opiki, Toko­maru, and down to Shan­non, where we then headed out to Fox­ton and on to Waitarere beach. As we trav­elled down Ridge Road on our way to Fox­ton, the views would have been lovely in­stead it was quite mys­ti­cal as we drove above the fog that blan­keted the coun­try­side. By the time we ar­rived at the beach for a short stop the sun was shin­ing en­cour­ag­ing some to walk down to the wa­ter’s edge. From here it was on to Levin, tak­ing in some of the residential area, then driv­ing around Lake Hor­rowhenua, then up the Main Street of the town. From there it was a straight trip North to Potts Road to Mur­ray­field Café for a break­fast which was ready and wait­ing for us on our ar­rival.

We had loads of lovely prized to give away this month in the lucky draws. Linda and Brian do­nated two gift bas­kets of cheese’s which were won by Mau­rice and the other by Ray. Ken and Sh­eryl do­nated a gar­den voucher won byWarren and the two model cars do­nated were won by Peter and the other by Mar­garet. Thank You to all those who do­nated these won­der­ful prizes, each and ev­ery one of them will be en­joyed, I’m sure. The car of the month was Bonito and Tracey’s shiny red 1982 WB Holden Ute which is new to the CCBC this month. Cans of food, dried goods, toi­letries, linen, and sta­tion­ary were just some of the items the Clas­sic Car Break­fast Club mem­bers gave so gen­er­ously to be do­nated to Aro­hanui Hos­pice.
