Open House is a group for over 60s that meets every month on the 4th Thursday of the month. Please feel free to bring a friend or share this programme with someone you think would be interested in coming to Open House. $5.oo each month is appreciated to cover costs and subsidise the Mystery Bus Trip.
Our events this year so far are:
Paul Kitteridge & Mary Lambert
Paul Kitteridge, Baritone, has taken a number of roles in amateur opera and musicals, as well as presenting radio recitals. In later life he belonged to the Wellington City Opera Chorus and various choirs and entertained in retirement homes.
Mary Lambert, Lyric Soprano, began singing lessons with Geoffrey Delautour. He would take her with others to sing at senior citizens gatherings and retirement homes – which she is still doing! Later she studied under Heather Taylor and Emily Mair and sang with Bel Canto and in Gilbert and Sullivan Musicals and now sings with the Wadestown Singers.
Thursday 27 May

The Caring Group meets every second Thursday in the Church hall (Hanover St) at 2pm.
For over 30 years we have made and provided gifts for the children who have a parent in prison. First we concentrated on Mt Crawford but lately Arohata.
Not all on our group are great knitters or sewers but everyone has something to contribute.
If you have time we would love to see you. Afternoon tea is provided in a warm atmosphere.
We are always willing to accept donations of wool or fabric—if we can’t use it we can find a home for such gifts.
