Message to Queen returned Right royal read: Redwood Club member Opeta Faraimo with the the response from Buckingham Palace, after a piece of art he made was sent to Queen Elizabeth. Royal reply delights club members The Redwood Club in Tawa was abuzz with excitement when a let- ter from the Queen arrived. Members of the daycare centre for elderly were in awe when the letter, bearing the royal crest and a special Diamond Jubilee stamp, was read and passed around for everyone to hold, said carer Pat Matheson. The club also received a Dia- mond Jubilee card with photo- graphs of the Queen, spanning her reign. Ms Matheson said the dis- tinguished correspondence came about after club members and staff were discussing the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and its associ- ated events. As part of the activity it was decided to send a congratulatory card to her Majesty as a tribute to her long reign and to wish her well. Members and staff worked on this large card together and the cover design of an intricate Pacific-style crown was created and drawn by one of our talented members.'' This art was posted to the Queen at Buckingham Palace, and the reply came two weeks later. For the members of the Red- wood Club this event has been an absolute highlight and a very special event to treasure,'' Ms Matheson said. The Redwood Club aims to pro- vide a balanced programme of activity and support for the eld- erly. It also gives carers a rest period from looking after a depen- dent relative. Volunteers to help in the kitchen, with activities, serving teas, driving a van and other activities, are always welcome at the club. For more information, phone 232 55221.
