Hey everyone - we're doing a fundraiser for our school. Please join us on 12 March. Why?
1. Have you heard of kiwis supporting local tourism? Tourism get's more media attention than musicians, but our local musicians have been hit by covid too. By coming, you'll be supporting some amazing local musicians of international quality. They can't travel overseas right now - so the world's loss is our gain.
2. It supports the school.
Our son's school does a lot of extra-curricular camps where kids learn about the natural environment and do real-life confidence-building. All profits go to their extra-curricular camps.
3. We're really lucky we can actually go to live events like this. Grab the chance!!!
4. Most importantly, the music is incredible and you'll have a great time with friends and family.
Trio Jackson plays music that is live, moving, warm, emotive, and engaging. People who see them play frequently use words such as "mesmerizing" and "spellbound" to describe their performances.
Literally, they use a combination of guitar and violin to travel through an elaborate array of Spanish, gypsy, jazz and original music - but really, hearing them is like hearing what love sounds like, as expressed through stringed musical instruments.
"OK - enough, I'm coming, when is it?"
* 7.30pm Friday 12 March.
Just say "i'm in" below and I'll arrange the rest.
See you there !!
Hi Neighbours, If buses are running near empty, maybe the traditional way of providing public transport needs a rethink. Read the story below on the empty buses of Hobsonville Point. What's the answer ?
An interesting mid week fact.
How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?
April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.
Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.
The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.
You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.
Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used your local community paper.
