Seniors Event - Reminiscing Photo Afternoon

15th May 2010
OSCA Clubrooms, Dunedin
By Phillip Shum

A wonderful afternoon was shared by over 30 long standing members who enjoyed browsing through many photos of past O.S.C.A. celebrations, Double 10 sports tournaments/events, family groups and the many businesses involving the local Community.
Photos spanned from the O.S.C.A. Committee  Double 10 celebrations in the 1940’s to more recent family and sports gatherings. It was a challenge for some of the participants to recognise their friends and acquaintances from their younger days.
Thank you to all who provided photos and produced CD’s of their families. Special thanks to Maisie and Les Wong who gave an interesting talk and showed pictures of their recent trip to China.  Thanks also to Malcolm Wong who provided updated and historical information and slide show regarding the Dunedin Chinese Gardens. Thanks also those who helped on the day especially arranging afternoon tea.
O.S.C.A. plans to create an electronic record of the photos. We will endeavour to work out a system to store the photos so details the memories can be viewed by this and later generations.
Families will be contacted.
