Menzies College 50th Reunion Update
Due to the potential disruption caused by the Covid-19 epidemic the anniversary committee has decided to postpone the reunion by a full year. With all the uncertainty and potential quarantine times that could be required from New Zealanders returning home for this event we felt it was best to take action early so there would be less impact on all those whom have already shown their interest in attending. The plan for the 3 days has not changed only the dates. We will be updating the signage in the next few weeks.
Option choices for 2021 are now organized onto a Google Website for easy viewing anywhere anytime. Follow the link provided underneath or via the hotlinks list.
