Update February 25

Posted by Go Waihi on 25/02/2014

A bit of wet stuff never hurt anyone. A good old saying and true too. We’ve needed some rain, it was nice to get a bit last weekend, and it smelt good too. To be honest we need some more. Another month passes us by, and my new month resolution kicks in again. It’s better than a whole year and you get lots of chances at being successful I reckon. Another full month of daylight saving to go and lots on while the sun stays up later.

Yoga classes for golden oldies (gold card holders) on Mondays from 11 am to midday are designed to help you relax and keep your body in the best possible health using gentle stretching postures incorporating all the body’s muscles. Men are welcome too, and it’s just $5 a class. Contact Margo for details on 07 863 7535.

Waihi Community Resource Centre has organised a series of free workshops on Creative Empowerment starting March 10 designed to inspire and support including communication skills, setting goals, staying motivated, problem solving strategies, overcoming financial difficulties and more. Call in or phone 863 7555 for more information.

Children’s Day’s being marked this Sunday at Gilmour Lake with a treasure hunt, lots of games and prizes. Take a picnic lunch and join in the fun with your children. It’s on from midday to 3 pm and is being put together by Respect Waihi, Waihi Baptist Church and Waihi Community Resource Centre.

Wednesday 5th March, the Go Waihi Business After 5 meeting is at Waterlily Gardens and we’d love Waihi business owners and managers to join us for a catch up. We’ll hear from council on how they see things going into 2014 and meet our new councillor Pam Kiel. Noddy’s bringing one of the vehicles they’re giving away at beach Hop and we’ll touch base on what’s coming up Please RSVP ASAP and if you’d like to take the courtesy RosMac bus we need a minimum of 20 so contact me now.

It’s day one of Beach Hop and Waihi’s Warm Up Party is on Wednesday March 26 from 10 am to 3 pm. Hundreds of hot rods and classic cars parked up with trophies for the best, and best dressed male gets a fantastic dinner voucher at Waitete Restaurant and best dressed lady is looked after by Diamonds On Seddon. Three or four bands playing through town, shops offering great specials and stalls to add to the flavour. Then there’s the Gold FM Drag Race at lunchtime, plenty of cafes and restaurants to keep the wolf from the door and there’s more in the wind too.

That’s the number of blokes you need for your team in the Gold FM Drag Race on March 26. A good team builder, business promotion, a goal setter, and one to tick off the bucket list, entries are open for a chance to show your fashion flair. Get some help from those in the know and accessorise yourself silly. First isn’t important, it’s more your style, or lack of, outrageousness and flamboyancy – which has nothing to do with lifejackets. Entry forms at Go Waihi and on our website. I’m sure you’ll look ‘er, stunning!?

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: A man’s house is his ‘hassle’.
