Papakura Newsletter May
Warm sunny days, crystal clear night skies, and it feels like spring, or is this Autumn. Well, it may be Winter but lets all enjoy what we have. I know those fires will keep burning for a few months to come. We are now in our final stages of planning for our Annual Antique fair.
This is a time, when all members come together, with enthusiasm, including lots of laughs as we work and gather to-gether over the weekend.
Of course there is the well worth of mentioning food tasting / pre sampling of the Fair cafe food.
Where home baking, and special intergeneration recipes fill our cafe and sometimes our stomachs. BRING IT ON ” as we look forward to another successful Antique fair so we can continue to support those community organisations that make a difference in the lives of the vulnerable including woman and children across our communities.

Quota Antique Fair meetings are increasing in frequency as the weekend draws nearer… Carol has hosted another meeting on Monday 12th June with a warm cosy fire and a lot of last minute cross checking being done as we begin to ensure that all the planning and co-ordinating is finely tuned. Please continue to identify possible Fair fund recipients from our wonderful community , making good use of the fair profits—we have received a number of potential recipients information which we will then need to discuss at June Business meeting.
