The weather was perfect for our celebration picnic on Mana Island on Sunday 25 March 2018.

Two boatloads of picnickers of all ages made the trip across to the island. Some visitors went on guided walks, others roamed the island sightseeing.

We all met back at the shore for short speeches and a special chocolate cake, decorated with leaves from native plants and shells. 

Our new President John McKoy spoke, as did Glenys Denz who was involved when FOMI was set up 20 years ago. She had the honour of cutting the cake. 

Our thanks to Christopher Stephens and Dale Shirtliff for taking these wonderful photos of the event.
