This year marks 100 years since the very first Poppy Day which was on April 24th 1922.

Originally the idea of making poppies came from a French woman called Madame E. Guerin. She had poppies made by orphans and widows in war torn areas of Northern France that could be sold to give money to veterans and destitute children. Colonel Alfred S. Moffatt on behalf of Madame E. Guerin approached the NZRSA about purchasing poppies and the very first order was placed for 350,000 small and 16,000 large silk poppies from the Guerin's French Children's League.

The first Poppy Day in New Zealand was not held on Armistice Day 11 November 1921 as intended simply because the ship containing the poppies from France arrived too late. Poppy Day was postponed to the day prior to ANZAC Day 24th April 1922 and has remained the Friday before ANZAC Day ever since. This is why in New Zealand Poppy Day is not associated with Armistice Day as it is in other countries.

Look out for Poppy Boxes at local businesses around the Tasman area where donations can be made at any time throughout April. These funds and the Poppy Day collections locally go directly towards welfare of veteran's, returned and services and their immediate families in this district.

Please give generously.

New Memberships for 2024-2025 available now $45 per person or $80 couple. Returned Services $30

Dear Valued Members,

As of Friday 3rd December the whole of NZ moves into the new traffic light system. Under this new system if we are in red or orange and choose to “opt out” of using vaccination certificates, we would have to close as we cannot do contactless business.

We want to be able to continue to open under the red and orange light settings so will be “opting in”.

What this means for you is that we will be welcoming members who provide vaccine passport proof into the club.

For those that choose not to vaccinate, we respect your decision but unfortunately you will not be able to visit the club.

Please remember that these rules are set by the government and not by our staff and although we know that the rules can be frustrating to some people, we do ask that you show kindness to our staff and the understanding that we are doing our very best to keep the Motueka RSA going through these difficult times.

So come on in with your mask and vaccine passport, we would love to see you here.
