Tēnā koutou whānau
Sitting here today, in our Blenheim office with the sun shining and the trees greening, it is almost too hard to believe that a couple of weeks ago was winter.
Certainly there is a lot happening in our iwi and I know many of you will be contemplating voting, which must be completed by 12 noon on the 16th September 2016, and planning to come to celebrate or discuss iwi business over the weekend of 24th and 25th September at Omaka Marae.
Please advise us if you have not yet received your voting papers, firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will make sure that you have the necessary papers.
As per last year we have another big weekend planned, with a day for iwi members on Saturday 24th September at the Blenheim Indoor Sports Centre in Battys Rd, an evening dinner at Omaka Marae and then on Sunday 25th September a full day at the Marae starting at 10am.
We’re sending a note out in the in the mail as a reminder, so do keep an eye out for it and don’t forget the dates Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September 2016.
