KIM* KIWIS IN MONTREAL

  Founded by Sally and Chico Wallis in 1979, with the purpose of bringing together New Zealanders in the Montreal, QC. Canada, area.

Sally originally from Christchurch was homesick and wanted to meet other New Zealanders. They have organized many activities, in these past few years, where the members of the group and their families could enjoy some of the traditions from home. Usually on the first week-end of August we have had the opportunity to enjoy a Hangi at the Long Sault Parkway, west of Cornwall in Ontario. As a rule the Hangis have been officiated by Ted Rudolph who has applied his long experience in organizing such events according to true Maori tradition. During these gatherings the New Zealand flag was always proudly displayed thanks to the Wallis family members. On some occasions the Maori concert party performed traditional Maori dances.

Other events have been supper gatherings mainly at Fritz Farm in Baie d'Urfe, on the occasion of Waitangi Day, and these have been held on the first Saturday of February. Members enjoy getting together for Pot-Luck suppers. .
