All the china is donated for the event by a club member. Plus towards the end of the month, the ladies celebrated their service to the club and dressed in period costumes remembering days gone by. We always love taking pictures of the Womens Section and their happenings.

Foxton, New Zealand
Foxton residents, kids and supporters came out to help with the Te Waiora Community Gardens. Organizer, Artists & Gardener, Wendy Hodder, came up with the idea to turn the piece of land into a community gardens and paint a mural on a corrugated iron fence. The week long project brought together kids who spent their school holiday painting, digging dirt and planting vegetables. Plus, the Foxton Te Awahou Woman Lions Club did some digging and painting tires. The Foxton Mens Lions Club cooked sausages on the grill and made sure tummies had enough to eat. It was fun community project! A few pictures from the event. Thank you all involved in this project! A week of learning and living!

On Monday, March 27th at the Manawatu Boating Club in Foxton Beach, New Zealand the Inner Smile Tai Chi Club of Palmerston North came to the beach for a day of Tai Chi, lunch, conversation, and fun! Over 30 members took to the green grass at the boating club for Tai Chi. Tai Chi is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. People all over the world practice this art to stay healthy, stay in shape and relieve stress. According to Terry, the instructor for Inner Smile, "you are never to old or young to practice it". Before their warm up exercise, the group put good vibes into the air which they believe lead to a fisherman making a big catch. The Manawatu Boating Club provided a tasty and yummy lunch. Plus, ICRadio was invited to speak and bring along some of Stu's yummy jams and chutneys to try and for sell. If you want to learn more about this awesome club they meet at the Senior Citizens Assn Hall at 309 Main Street, Palmerston North on Monday and Thursday mornings at 9:30am and Wednesday evening at 5:30pm. Thank you Barbara, Andrew and Terry for having International Connection Radio at the event! Click on the pictures to see them fully.
New Zealand Author and Foodie, Stu Frith, has published Stu's Kitchen: taste bud testing to great response! Stu's book almost sold out in America and is doing very well home in New Zealand. The Foxton Beach resident says "I was raised on a farm and always had a love for food" so "I decided to put basic kiwi recipes into an easy to read cookbook". Stu was surprised by how many Americans where interested in kiwi recipes. He says "the Americans are keen to try and learn how to make the pavlova " and "they seem to love my stuffing recipe". American's became interested in Stu's food because he post pictures on his face book fan page International Connection Radio, an online radio station he owns and operates. He adds recipes are in large bold text for easy reading and a spiral binding makes its easy to lay flat. In August, the cookbook will be available as an e-book with updated recipes for Stu's Jams and Chutneys. "My fruit for the jams and chutneys come from Hawke's Bay" says Frith. "Its something special about how that region grows fruit." You can find Stu's Kitchen: taste bud testing in the National Library of New Zealand in Wellington and Levin's Te Takere or order a copy directly from Stu at firstname.lastname@example.org
His next appearance is on Tuesday, July 18th at the Dannevirke Library at 10:30 am. It's a FREE event!
