NEWSLETTER DECEMBER 2003

Anniversary Booklet

To commemorate the 80th anniversary a booklet has been written with the information taken from the minutes of the first eighty years of the Association. Printed by Caxton Press, the booklet shares the events of the past. How the committee wanted to have their own rooms, how they spoke out against planned changes to the layout of Christchurch, how they supported the erection of memorials to those early settlers who gave so much to Canterbury, interesting anecdotes tell of their achievement. The booklet is for sale at $10 per copy with $1 P&P. Three booklets are able to be fitted into one envelope. If you would like one of these commemorative booklets please contact Secretary Lynne at any of the addresses at the beginning of the newsletter. There are limited number of copies so call Lynne to get your copy.
