We were all saddened to hear that you have decided to graciously resign your position as Honorary Consul for New Zealand here in Seattle.You have held such a close affiliation with New Zealand for so long that you leave a lasting legacy with so many people from not only New Zealand but also the local Australia New Zealand America Society (ANZAS) group as well.
On behalf of the Board and members of ANZAS we would like to thank you very much for being an Honorary Board Member and such a loyal supporter of our organization over all these years.It has been such an honor and privilege to have known you both personally and as an active member of the Australian and New Zealand community here in Seattle.We wish you all the very best for a long, healthy and happy “retirement” and hope that you will continue to be a friend of ANZAS and participate in our activities as time and circumstances permits.
With our very best regards,
On behalf of the Board of ANZAS
Honorary Consul of New Zealand
On behalf of the Board and members of the Australia New Zealand America Society (ANZAS) I would like to congratulate you on your appointment as the New Zealand Honorary Consul.It is a tremendous honor and very well deserved.Both you and Ken have been such active supporters and organizers of New Zealand activities here in Seattle that it was an obvious choice to have you succeed Della as the Honorary Consul.
In keeping with our charter, we would like to extend the courtesy of inviting you to join ANZAS as an Honorary Board Member.Although Della could not as actively participate in Board activities as John Bollard did she always enthusiastically supported our activities and functions when she could.
We certainly appreciate your past support of ANZAS and for encouraging other New Zealanders to participate in our functions and hope that you will accept our invitation to be a board member.Our Annual Dinner is planned for Friday 23rd April and invitations will be sent out soon.We would like to formally introduce you our members at this function.Once again, please accept our heartfelt congratulations on your appointment and please do not hesitate to call on us if we can assist you in your capacity as New Zealand Honorary Consul.
