AUCKLAND NETBALL EVENT CENTRE
SATURDAY 15th OCTOBER 2022
A wonderful day. Thank you to all the members that were able to come (approx 180) and help us to celebrate 85 years for the Fitness League in New Zealand.
Nina was at the door to welcome everyone (our long standing teacher 65 years) still teaching Pukekohe and Pakuranga Village, along with Doreen (Remuera long standing member) handing out programmes.
We had a table with all the history of the Fitness League which Lesley and Glen looked after. Marilyn and Evelyn sold the special 85th celebration pens and notepads. Nina’s ladies were in charge of the raffles and how amazing were the raffles, thank you to everyone who helped bring these together.
The morning commenced with Pam opening the teaching sessions, everyone on the floor and you all looked great out there together. Pam was followed by Sonia, followed by Rosemary with her mass item. Jennie and Val completed the morning exercise. Trish was in charge of the music and managed to keep us moving all day, a great effort.
Jill, a member of Pakuranga Village/Pukekohe, she has been a member since 1946, how extraordinary and Jill was recognised for such an achievement.
Val then honoured Nina for 65 years of teaching, currently teaching at Pukekohe and Pakuranga Village, a true feat of dedication and love. Audrey, another long standing member from Sunnynook had made a fruit cake beautifully iced for Nina to cut. We all enjoyed a piece.
Lunch enjoyed by all then came the raffle drawer, with lots of excitement from the winners.
Our afternoon session commenced with the special items performed by all the different classes; Classes from Katikati and Tauranga; Whangaparaoa/Silverdale Monday/Glenfield Tuesday; Glenfield Wednesday; Greenhithe/Glamorgan/Highgrove,/Hobsonville/Murrays Bay; Remuera/ Sunnynook/Te Atatu; Wellsford/Warkworth. Wonderful performances by everyone and enjoyment by all.
So until 2027 happy exercising everyone.
