The high­light for Novem­ber was

Ta­matea WI’s flower show.

It was won­der­ful to see so many of the mem­bers ar­riv­ing with flow­ers to en­ter into it. It made for a very colour­ful sup­per room.

With the ab­sence of the pres­i­dent, vice pres­i­dent Joan took to the helm and wel­comed mem­bers to the Novem­ber meet­ing. The As­pi­ra­tions were re­cited and the Ode sung.

There was a rea­son­able quan­tity of for­mal and gen­eral busi­ness to be dealt with. There was a great re­sponse to the Lonely Bou­quets that were dis­trib­uted in the com­mu­nity in Oc­to­ber and bright­ened up the days of many peo­ple.

Nom­i­na­tion forms for the com­mit­tee were made avail­able and it was pointed out that all of the top ta­ble would be go­ing off com­mit­tee next year, hav­ing served for four years.

The ladies that had not en­tered into the flower show were to be the judges, with each lady se­lect­ing their favourite in each cat­e­gory. While this was hap­pen­ing, Joan hosted a song com­pe­ti­tion where the two sides of the room had turns in nam­ing and singing the cho­rus of songs with a flower in the ti­tle. The placeget­ters were then each pre­sented with a cer­tifi­cate and a prize.

Placeget­ters were —

Mul­ti­coloured:

1st Mar­i­lyn Thorp, 2nd Adri­enne Par­sons, 3rd Joan Curtis

1st Bev Cra­mond, 2nd Anne Clif­ford, 3rd Pauline Pow­ell

The meet­ing then con­cluded with sup­per, fel­low­ship and ad­mir­ing the blooms.
