How many branches can proudly honour two of their members attaining that awesome age of 100 within the same month?
Another milestone was celebrated by the Hawke’s Bay Branch -two members celebrated their birthdays in November. George Foulds, from Hastings (100 on 4th November) and Wendy Throp from Napier (100 on 25th November).
Mid November Branch Committee members and their spouses took George and Wendy out for a celebratory complimentary lunch at the Duke of Gloucester in Taradale. They were both presented with a birthday card and small birthday cake, made by Paddy, Hawke’s Bay Branch President.
George's family have named a special rose "Centurion" to honour this mementos occasion for their family. Attached is a flyer advertising this rose, which will be in the garden centres for winter 2020.
