Jo Kane is back to New Zealand

Jo Kane, Chairperson of the Waimakariri-Zonnebeke Trust is back in her country since around midnight local New Zealand time.
Thanks to Maria Van der Meiren, Chairperson of the Municipal Council, we've got some pictures from the visit of Jo with Maria and her husband and Sabine (Alderperson of Zonnebeke) and her husband on a visit in the house and workshop of the artist Rik Ryon in Proven (near Poperinge).

Jo is now in Auckland again to pack the exhibition who is ending tomorrow our time and today New Zealand time. Volunteers in Auckland and Fort Takapuna will help her and also the people of Waiouru Army Museum and the New Zealand Army.
The Belgians are again very grateful to New Zealand. New Zealand allowed us to come with our exhibition to show you the battlefields of Flanders where we live and where we still commemorate your boys who were giving the ultimate sacrifice , today 92 years ago. We hope that it could be a start for New Zealand too, to not forget what their country has done for peace, democracy and freedom in the world.
