Soaking Up The Warmth

Vice-President's Visit To Gisborne

Jaycee International vice-president, Senator David Chua-Unsu of Manila came to Gisborne during his recent New Zealand visit. He met and addressed local Jaycees at their tea-meeting of May 27. A large number of members attended the meeting, with visiting Jaycees coming from Wairoa and Opotiki.


Mrs Esme Tombleson has been elected national president of the New Zealand Multiple Sclerosis Society. Even during her busy years as a former Member of Parliament for the district, Mrs Tombleson always made time to help the society. She is now able to devote more time than before to the society's aims and publicise its work.


While most New Zealanders were shivering in winter cold, former Gisborne resident Ernie Beer was relaxing in the warm sunshine of the Cook Islands. The son of Mr E. A. Beer, Ormond Road, Ernie is Editor of the Bay of Plenty Times, Tauranga, and was with a group of journalists who visited Rarotonga at the invitation of Air New Zealand and the Cook Islands Tourist Authority to study developments in tourism there. Ernie relaxes beside the palmshaded pool of the Trailways Hotel in Rarotonga, a popular spot with New Zealand holiday-makers.
