It was a very enjoyable day for three CHB Federation members as guests
at the Southern Hawke's Bay Federation AGM at Dannevirke
The fabulously dressed SHB President
The AGM included a special occasion with a special guest:
the oldest surviving WI in New Zealand Norsewood WI's 95th birthday,
and our National President was there to help Norsewood's President cut the cake
The 'baubles of office'

Otawhao-Takapau WI celebrated a member's great accomplishment of 50 years' service,
with the Central Hawke's Bay Mayor there to present the bar
And the wonderful achievement of lots of lovely new members!
