Wednesday Monthly Meeting - March 2022

The last monthly meeting was dedicated to Mina who joined WINGS soon after arriving here. Mina has put her heart and soul into WINGS and has guided it with enthusiasm and compassion for 5 years. She has a true talent for being up to date with everyone, their difficulties, their strengths, their families and keeping in contact with them all. Her organisation and cooking skills will be sorely missed. Mina enjoys cooking for groups small and large. 

Mina was ensconced on a throne while she received accolades from various people in a variety of formats:
-- A heartfelt speech from Paula - Mina's Legacy
-- A song written by Deirdre and performed (while wearing wings) by Cecilia, Kristin,Lindsey and Jennifer. - " Leaving on a Jet Plane" with apologies to John Denver for taking liberties with the words...

Beach Day
On Saturday 5th of March some of the WINGS group and partners met at Whangaumu Bay, Tutukaka. This is one of my favourite local beaches as the swiming is safe and there is the most fabulous view back over Ngunguru harbour from the top of the cliff. The weather was a bit overcast but the company and the food was fabulous. We stayed well into the afternoon and a couple of us even had a dip in the sea. Swiming, walking, snoozing, chatting, reading, eating...perfect day! --- Cecilia Price.
Acrylic Painting Workshop
"A successful day purely because we all had a lovely time together, finding the creative and artistic side of ourselves. Some of the paintings produced were more than I though had come from someone that had not painted before.
Come along and give it a go and have some fun". --- Diane Yelavich
Hundertwasser Art Centre 
This was lovely event in an amazing building. Having known that Hundertwasser had lived for many year in the Bay of Islands, I learned from one of the well informed guides that this, is his last project, It was designed for and gifted to Whangarei, and is attracting far more visitors that anticipated.
To walk on tiled floors which dip and rise ike the ground, is a new experience. And the eye is attracted by brilliant colours in unexpected shapes and random designs. A short film introduced us to Hundertwasser's naturalist philosophy way of life and means of creating his colours. Then it was into the fine Maori art galleries that showcase, the variety of Hundertwasser's work. Models of his famous buildings...
