The president, Valerie Stevens opened the meeting with the ode and prayer. Alison Hensen welcomed all as the hostess Insti- tute, Halcombe. Opening speaker was Ian Fergusson. In his early life, he attended Women s Institute with his mother and sisters. His mother joined 1931 and later his wife was a member. Through the depression years, Halcombe WI was in charge of the welfare area of civil defence. He remembered the A&P Show s involvement and husbands often help with setting bays up. People in need were often helped by Women s Institute s, as well as the local church and different organ- isations, with basic necessities like food, clothing and accommodation. Today, WINZ do all those things but WI s often help. The family farm where he lived has been sold and divided into lifestyle blocks. Thanks were received from Feild- ing St John, Cancer, Addis House, Art Society, Arohanui Hospice and Feilding Historical Society for donations of goods.

Although it was a really wet day, members and visitors had an enjoy- able day. In the morning, there was a col- lection of pet food and blankets for Feilding SPCA. FEILDING PROBUS CLUB A nearly full membership turned out for the last monthly meeting this year, and the last to be held at the Oroua Women s Clubroom. From February meetings will be at the St Paul s Church Hall, to allow for increased membership. The Oroua Women s Club was acknowledged with thanks for the use of their premises over the past four or five years. President Shona reported on her visit to the Wairarapa, which she and members of a Palmerston North sister Probus Club under- took recently. Brett and Betty Bartlett-Wright, long-serving stalwarts of the club were farewelled, as they are leaving to retire to the sunny north.

Totally Vets have an 18-month contract to supply services to a group of dairy farms in Vietnam including training local vets and monitoring general animal health programmes. The cows are housed indoors at all times and all feed is brought to them. Presently the project covers 10,000 cows but the aim is that by completion in 2017 it will be the largest dairy operation in the world with approximately 137,000 cows. The Cameo Speaker spot was shared between Brian Hunter and David Stroud who gave members a progress report on the establish- ment of the new Coachhouse Museum on the corner of South St and Kawakawa Rd -- a gigantic project requiring much more funding. Members were reminded of the bus trip on Sunday, November 20 to Gardens and Homes on Highway 50 in Central Hawkes Bay, including a visit to Gwavas garden and home- stead. The Christmas Dinner will be held on December 13 at the Rangitikei Club, with a concert incorporating the talents of some of the members, following the meal. Makino Probus Club was formed in March 1996 for active retirees to keep active, expand their interests and to enjoy the friendship and fel- lowship of other members. Gold was everywhere WOMEN'S INSTITUTE Kairanga Women s Institute cel- ebrated International Month on November 8. Before the meeting commenced, president Judith Milne asked everyone to stand for a minute s silence to observe the passing of Ngaire Croad in October, a mem- ber for 60 years. The motto for the month was Do unto others as though you were the others , read by Marga- ret Christensen. The speaker for the afternoon, Mrs Marjorie Epsom, a member of Whakaronga WI, gave us a detailed description of a Cambodian wedding she attended earlier this year. Marjorie has been involved with people from overseas for the past 25 years. She and a friend journeyed to Auckland for this special occasion. The wedding spread over two days with much pomp and colour. She saw so many gold items, you would not believe it, she said. An orchestra played all through the ceremonies. The bride and groom changed their clothes seven times, ending up with a New Zealand white wedding. Bright colours, flowers, food were everywhere and pigs heads, seven of them, on the tables. The bride s family made Mar- jorie two outfits to wear. They con- sisted brightly coloured skirts and beautiful blouses. Our roll calls for November were foodstuffs for Women s Ref- uge and towels for the hospice.
