Eileen Parsons
 For competing in the Rotorua Marathon onthe 6th of May.Eileen walked the Marathon in a time of 7 hours and 20 minutes, finishing within the cut off period for the race and receiving a T/Shirt  for her effort. As one of the 1,950 people taking part, shesaid it was an awesome experience and oneshe would like to repeat!!
Last month local women enjoyed primping,preening and celebrating being female at anevent that embodied community and team spirit.
The Girls Indulgency Night was great fun, butwhat’s even better is that it’s generated un-dreamed of and unexpected positive spinoffs.
The fundraiser, organised by Leigh Knightbridgewith help from many others, earned about $2700for Maungaturoto Primary School. About 50people had trade stalls and provided massages,makeovers, manicures and more. Participantscame from far and wide - Elite Beauty School inWhangarei had eight people there. The eveningattracted 170 women.
And while the intention was to get money to buyequipment for the school sandpit, people are en- joying benefits they certainly didn’t expect.
For example, one woman had a brief reflexologysession. She’s since gone to Mangawhai for thefull deal, is raving about the treatment and hasspread the word. I already know that at leastone other person has booked in to get theirhealth issues sorted. It’s likely others also gotpositive and ongoing benefits from the evening.
Leigh says “lots of people were fantastic”, espe-cially Debbie Thornton and Joy Cullen. Her chil-dren - Brooke and Amanda - were also starsalong with husband Grant who provided staff anda truck and a team of spunky waiters.
When they got involved these people thoughtthey were just organising a fun evening and rais-ing money.
But, at the end of the day, they’ve given peoplemuch more which means that, they too, end upgetting more out of the event than they ex-pected.
So reach out, get involved, share and participate- unexpected bonuses await.
(in Eve’s absence)
PS: A new business that learned about the Life-style Field Day from a chatty local has securednew business. Different event, similar result.The benefits keep rolling in.

Real Town Maungaturoto has been successfulin obtaining a grant from ASB Trust for newequipment for the playground.Council has already set aside funds for land-scaping the area.The use of these funds will enable the play-ground to be brought up to today's safety stan-dards giving the town a very attractive area forresidents and travellers, enticing them to stop inMaungaturoto.Once the first draft of the concept plan is avail-able we will be consulting with various inter-ested groups to enable input from all differentsectors. Further down the track when theweather dries up and we begin to put things to-gether we will be looking for volunteers to helpas this will make our funding go further.Watch this space for updates.
