Firstly I would like to officially introduce myself, I'm Donna Hall your acting club president. I was born and raised in Whangarei as a farm girl Breeding Red Devon Cattle with my mum.
After a 20 year sabbatical in Auckland I have come back to the land and my Red Bands. This time round I fell in love with goats, yes the gorgeous floppy eared kind lol. They have stolen my heart, now time to put all that knowledge from breeding Red Devons into breeding Nubians.
Taking on the Acting President role seemed to just happen, I have seen the gaps in the Club and hope to fill them with the help of my supporting committee members.
Jane Cherrette is the newest committee member and maker of our fantastic new website. I instigated the website as a priority for the club members to utilise, you will find lots of helpful information, show updates, downloadable forms plus a classified section for the buying and selling of goats. The site still has more to come as Jane works behind the scenes, so make sure to follow our Facebook page for regular updates. Please contact Jane for all website or Facebook related queries.
Myself and Jane are both attending the North Island All Breeds Show day on the 19th January at Pukekohe Showgrounds, so please come along and introduce yourselves.
I have a lot planned for the new year as our club moves forwards towards its potential. I'm excited for the things to come as we work thought what's what and what's needed next. I openly welcome members thoughts and ideas for the club, so please contact me anytime for a chat. Jane is currently also working hard to ensure all our club paperwork is ship shape, so please make sure she has your up to date contact information.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year, I'm very much looking forward to the next season with lots more amazing Nubian goats.
