U-Turn and Te Aranga Marae joined to create the U-Turn Flaxmere Heroes calendar which positively highlighted special and dynamic people that live in or come from Flaxmere – a hero or heroes for each month of the year. The potential heroes from the community are endless (including several All Blacks) and each year, the community is asked to nominate who they think deserving of a position in the calendar.
Originated 2010 this simple but powerful annual event provides an opportunity to celebrate our local Flaxmere talent –our heroes. MC’d by Henare O’Keefe with technical support from Traci Tuimaseve who coordinates the images of calendar heroes, this year at Focal point cinema. This calendar is sponsored by Totara Health and Hastings District Council sponsors the health and social services directory.
