Ka nui te mihi ki a koutou katoa. He tika te kōrero a kui mā, a koro mā: Mā te huruhuru ka rere te manu. Nō reira kei te mihi.
Well-known artist Albert McCarthy kindly allowed to use his artwork "Mauri" as our logo. Known affectionately to us as Albi he has been involved our group since our early days and continues to exhibit some of his many art works with us. Now, located in Foxton he organised an exhibition, currently showing, at the Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom' Museum titled Kotahi tonu te Wairua o nga mea katoa.
