Celebrating INTERNATIONAL PEACE DAY in beautiful sunny Auckland!

PPSEAWA New Zealand's Auckland group presented two Japanese Maple plants the Chair of Puketapapa Local Board, Harry Doig. One tree was planted to reflect Peace Day and this year's theme of Climate Change, and the other tree planted in the remembrance of the Late Rev. Valerie Hogan, a dedicated PPSEAWA Life member and past President for PPSEAWA NZ. The maple trees were planted in Wahine Toa Park, which means Brave Women in English. A memorial plague commemorated the anniversary of Women's Suffrage in New Zealand, which was granted in 1893. The park is surrounded by white camellias, which became the symbol of women's suffrage

We presented a Peace Lily to David Fraser - President of the Ranfurly Village Residence Association on behalf of the the village. A few of our PPSEAWA members reside at the village who are well served and looked after by retirement village. Thank you Ranfurly Village for the hospitality and the beautiful morning tea and lunch.
