The Women’s Section of the Mount Maunganui RSA was formed in 1953. We currently have a membership of 1069, making this Women’s Section the largest in New Zealand at the present time.
We have a working committee of 16 – these ladies are the administrators and organizers. There is a Social Committee to organize our entertainment.Special afternoons are held on the last Wednesday of each month at 1.30 pm. Our format is a quick meeting, followed by an hour’s entertainment and afternoon tea.
We raise funds by catering for many functions:- Funerals, Birthdays, Weddings and Rest Homes. Our Internal Sport’s Club Christmas parties and various Award ceremonies are also catered for. The organization and collection for Poppy day is a big event and we help in the collections for the Cancer Society and the Blind Association. We also sponsor a puppy for the Guide Dog Association called “Vito”.
