Jane Saunders brought her courageous spirit to Aratika.  She joined our team facilitating at retreats, reaching out and helping others with cancer in her community in Taupō and creating a legacy of art that supports Aratika and Pinc & Steel Taupō.  She said she felt privileged to be a Trustee with us.  But we know that it is us who were privileged, we were graced with Jane's love and desire to serve.  We are honoured and humbled that she joined us!
