would like to remind all motor- ists to please be on the lookout  for children walking to and from school AND hopping on and off our SCHOOL BUSES 
Please slow down when passing a bus that has stopped to drop off or pick up children 
Congratulations to:- 
Alan and Bernice Flower celebrated their 55th Wedding Anniversary on March 31st.Couples reaching milestones like this are usu- ally asked what their recipe is for such success.Well in this case we might wonder!! Alan has been seen with his left arm in a sling,and more recently with two black eyes! And now Bernice is getting around with a ban- daged shin! Otherwise they say “Let’s grow old together” 
Great achievement best wishes from theMaungaturoto Matters. Here’s to many morehappy anniversaries.
More congratulations on page 3

Please give Gale a call on 4318 232.We are upgrading the Maungaturoto Business di-rectory, would your business or community grouplike to be listed? , if so please fill out the form en-closed in this matters report (or if you were sent aform in your matters minutes please use that) andsend it with your payment to the address provided,the cut off date is Thursday 13
April 2006 so getthem in ASAP.I have noticed the small notice board is being wellused but the message about dating all notices isnot getting through, I will be cleaning out the boardsoon, items are allowed to remain for one monthso items without a date will most likely be removed(this allows space for new items to go up).Finally groups that would like to advertise up-coming events on the large notice board oppositethe St Johns can contact me and I will endeavourto get your event noticed.Till next time
