It is with deep sadness I have to advise that our dear friend Hina

passed away on Tuesday evening 18 February as a result of bowel

cancer. I know this news will come as a shock to many as it

was only a few short weeks ago we were told of her diagnosis.

Hina was a caring, outgoing, loving person and was a large part of our

Club. Being on the committee she also participated in the every day

decision making to make the Club stronger.

Hina is survived by her adoring husband Wal and her loving family.

She will be greatly missed by us all.







Birthdays:  Happy Birthday wishes go to Vera 4th, Velta 7th, Margaret King 7th, Marilyn 21st.  Hope you have a wonderful day ladies.

When God Sends You Help, Don't Ask Any Questions
A woman hurried to the pharmacy to get medication, got back to her car and found that she had locked her keys inside. The woman found an old rusty coat hanger left on the ground. She looked at it and said, "I don't know how to use this." She bowed her head and asked God to send her some HELP. 
Within 5 minutes a beat-up old motorcycle pulled up, driven by a bearded man who was wearing an old biker skull rag. He got off of his cycle and asked if he could help. 
She said: "Yes, my daughter is sick. I've locked my keys in my car. I must get home.

Please, can you use this hanger to unlock my car? " 
He said, "Sure." He walked over to the car, and in less than a minute the car was open. 
She hugged the man and through tears said, "Thank You, God, for sending me such a very nice man." 
The man heard her little prayer and replied, "Lady, I am NOT a nice man. I just got out of prison yesterday; I was in prison for car theft." 
The woman hugged the man again, sobbing, "Oh, thank you, God!  You even sent me a Professional! "
