Merle Edwards with Sue Gill -Life Member and Barry Roach.

The roast lunch was sumptuous and generous. Merle Edwards, as President, always runs an efficient and welcoming occasion.

Sue Gill was made a Life Member of Grey Power for her amazing years of service as Treasurer.

Barry Roach was recognised for his excellent work as Secretary. The programme was full of information. Lorraine MacAllister, Business Manager of Mercury Bay Medical Centre, with her team of Yvette Simpson, Social Worker at Revive and Melanie Asquith spoke to the gathering about making services more accessible and available for older folk. Many aspects of their work have been prompted by suggestions from our local Grey Power.

Tony Marsters, manager of Whitianga Social Services also addressed the gathering. He spoke succinctly about how to access the Total Mobility card.
