Secretary Snippets Well it has been a wet few days, but summer is here,and the evenings are getting longer. During January there are afew rallies on.See below
The New Zealand Flag.
Remember this Saturday’s trip to And a little old flag in the corner That’s part of our heritage too. Who were sent to the ends of the earth, The rogues and schemers, the doers and the dreamers, Who gave New Zealand birth. And you who are shouting to change it. Who don’t seem to understand. It’s the flag of our law and our language. Not the flag of a far away land. Though there are plenty of people who’ll tell you now When Europe was plunged into night The little old flag in the corner Was their symbol of freedom and light It doesn’t mean we owe allegiance To a forgotten imperial dream. We’ve got the stars to show where we are going And the old flag to show where we have been Our flag bears the stars that blaze at night, in our southern sky of blue.
