At 4.30pm yesterday afternoon, 20 April 2016 in the Tanoa Plaza Hotel, the Australian Army Forces JTF 635 presented us with a Gift, a picture frame of their entire troops that carried out aid in Koro Island, Savusavu, Rakiraki etc during TC Winston.
Engraved at the bottom of the picture was written:
To the Management and Staff of the Tanoa Hotel “Vinaka Vakalevu” From JTF 635
The head of the troops (standing at the center of the troops in the frame) who stayed at the hotel said, “its like being home and cause their mother’s are picking up their clothes and neatly placing them every time they walk into their rooms” and of all the comments that we enjoyed hearing from him was that “ They go to the islands and look after everyone, but at the back of their minds, they know that at the hotel, someone is always looking after them”
We finished off with a few words of thanks and took some group photos.
