Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to purchase a new present for a needy child via our Kiwi Community Assistance Giving Tree, your generosity is appreciated. These gifts will be distributed by KCA next week to the agencies that deal directly with the recipients.
I hope to see some of you tonight at the ‘Just the Locals’ Craft event – a relaxed evening here at the Centre from 6pm to view and buy products from local artisans. And don’t forget the SPCA will be in tomorrow … with kittens!
