Tena Koutou te Whanau Our family would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the many whanau and friends who supported us during the sad and tragic loss of our dearly loved son, grandson, newphew and cousin. To the many whanau members who supported Robert and Gaye (parents of Te Riunui) while they were still in hospital. Words cannot express how much your support has meant to us, and how that support has carried our whanau through our darkest days. Ma te Atua tatou e manaaki, e tiaki, i nga wa katoa.

19 March 2004Charity Concert 2004
Kia Ora koutou te whanau. He mahana oku mihi ki a koutou.Just a brief intro, I am from the line of Mihi Taheke, my grandparents are Hamana(fatherbear) 7 Mereapu. My parents are George & Taini Tuau.In the year 2001 (October) I suffered a double heart attack and while in Hutt Hospital, I observed the lack of resources and staff so I advised my cardiologist that I would hold a Charity Concert for Hutt Hospital Heart Trust. I gathered a lot of my entertainer friends together and we staged the first consert in 2002, 12 months to the day of my attacks. I staged another last year 2003 and I found that some of the Wellington Jose whanau were in attendance. I am staging my third concert on August 14th 2004 and whilst attending Cassidy Tangaere's 70th birthday(I was aguest artist) I made that announcement of the concert and was amazed at the response of those wanting tickets. Cassidy was the first person to make a $100.00 donation(sponsorship) to this coming event. I have managed to raise approximately $8,000.00 towards helping those who will sure need the services of the Hutt Hospital Heart Trust.I love entertaining and making people happy. Those of you of this Jose whanau residing in the Wellington area, the concert venue is Lower Hutt Town Hall comencing 6.30 pm of the 14th August. The hall is booked again for June 25 2005 when I will celebrate my 60th birthday. I have enjoyed reading all the news and I am a "First timer."Kia Ora koutou katoa.Trip Tuaue-mail: fatherbear@xtra.co.nz

03 February 2004Multicultural Centre in Melbourne
Kia ora koutou to all our Manuel Jose whanau! Just a short message to all the Manuel Jose whanau living in Melbourne, I am the secretary of the South pacific Foundation and we are working towards getting a multicultural centre built for South Pacific peoples - that includes you!! - and then once we get that, we will then work towards getting individual cultural whare (e.g. marae, whare, fale etc) around the centre (the multicultural centre is the "hub" of the wheel and the cultural whare the "spokes"), but to get there we need you to register (it's free) so that the Victoria Stage Government can see that there are a lot of us here and we have the support. If you want to know more, email me at: sthpacific.vic@bigpond.com.au and I will let you know more. Looking forward to hearing from you!!!Georgina brownMelbourne, Australia : Monday, January 19, 2004
