Update from Chairman, Graeme Pierson


 I trust that all members of Friendship NZ Inc. have had a really nice time with their respective families and friends over the Christmas and New Year. The months of December and January have been nice and quiet, and one trusts that will continue for the rest of the year. This past year has been a quiet time for Councillors in all Districts.

Since our last newsletter we have now completed our process for the appointment of Councillors for three Districts throughout New Zealand.

Firstly our Treasurer, Mrs Chris Winstanley from the Friendship Club of Johnsonville has been reappointed as The Councillor for District 40. Mrs June Welten of the Tauranga Vision Friendship Club has been appointed as Councillor for District 30 while Mr Graham Clayton of the Hokonui Focus in Gore has been appointed Councillor for District 80. As they were the only nominations received, no elections were necessary.


I would like to thank Mrs Paulette Lawrence of the Waimakariri Combined Club for her efforts as our Returning Officer.

We are very disappointed that there has not been any nomination for District 10. I hope that someone from that District would be prepared to offer themselves for the position in this District.

Council has again decided that the subscription for members of clubs will remain at $3.00 per head including Life Members. All Secretaries should have received the request for affiliation fees from our Centre Administrator. We also require completion of a form from all clubs advising the names and contacts of Club Presidents and Secretaries so that our Website can be updated. Clubs with a separate Primary Contact are also requested to provide those contact details.

I would like to thank all clubs for their support, not only to myself and other Councillors but also to Rosemarie, our Administrator and Margaret, our Highlights Editor as we are all happy to assist clubs where we can.

Graeme Pierson
Chairman, Friendship New Zealand Inc
