Kia Ora!

Kia Ora! The Honorable Tim Groser, Ambassador of New Zealand hosted Aleethia’s “Friday Night Dinner” for 57 wounded/injured/ill service members, family members and guests. The evening began with Embassy staff members performing a welcoming Maori song. The tables were decorated with items to represent a province of New Zealand.




New Zealanders (“Kiwis”) served as table hosts and provided informative conversations of the culture, food, customs, landscape, etc. of the various regions. Everyone enjoyed the buffet of delectable New Zealand cuisine including Pavlova – a traditional celebratory dessert.


A quiz of 20 questions regarding facts of New Zealand was conducted and the table that got the most answers received a basket of New Zealand items to share.


There were unique raffle prizes for several lucky winners.




The friendly and outgoing Kiwis made for a most enjoyable and memorable evening. Tēnā Koe!
