I departed Fiji on April 24 and headed first for Wellington, New Zealand to visit the PPSEAWA NZ Branch there and to meet its National President, Beryl Vincent, and local members. Beside meeting with PPSEAWA members, I was privileged to be included in the impressive annual ANZAC Day commemorative Ceremonies. I then went to Auckland to visit its PPSEAWA Branch.
Both in Wellington and Auckland I was able to meet leaders of other organizations with which PPSEAWA NZ works and interacts on various projects that expand as well as share their common goals. To both PPSEAWA NZ Branches I was able to bring first hand information concerning plans for the 2013 PPSEAWA International Conference to be held in Fiji.
