June Dinner - International Candlelighting Evening
Each year BPW Clubs from all over the world hold a Candlelighting Ceremony. The candles symbolize the ambitions and endeavors of dedicated women in every country around the world.
The guest speaker for this months ceremony was Vasanti Unka who compiled stories from daughters and grand daughters of the pioneer Indian Women who left the warmth of their close-knit village communities to live in NZ. Many came - often with young kids in tow - to live with husbands they barely knew. They arrived with nothing but a suitcase of light cotton saris and a ton of courage.
Anyone interested in reading these stories the book is called A Suitcase of Saris.
Young BPW is the information network for the next generation of leaders who are BPW members aged 35 years and under. The purpose of the network is to give this group of young women the support and encouragement of like-minded women. It enables personal development, particularly in leadership, by giving them empowerment and exposure to a national and international networking platform. Check out some of the happenings on the Young BPW NZ Facebook page.
Young BPW recently had a raffle to raise funds to support attending meetings together. Sally (BPW 2nd Vice President) kindly donated a quilt she had made. Virginia was the lucky winner and was presented with the quilt at our June meeting.
