8 February Meeting

  • One of the few certainties in life is that it ends in death. Although most of us don't want to think about happens once we kick the bucket, when the time comes to go most of us would want our arrangements to be handled by professionals. On Wednesday Kaikohe Rotarians visited Squire Funeral Service to hear about and inspect our town's most up-to-date funeral service.

  • Arlen Armstrong has been with Squire for almost 35 years, starting when the business was owned by the late Dennis Squire. Like all other funeral directors in New Zealand, Arlen trained at the country's only school for funeral directors at the Central Institute of Technology (now WelTec) in the Hutt Valley.

  • After more than three decades and thousands of funerals, Arlen is respected throughout the Far North for his professional demeanor. He has brought sons Arlen Jnr and Bubba into the business and they've obviously learned a lot from their father.

  • Squire Funeral Services is owned by Morris & Morris of Whangarei. Previously situated in outdated and shabby accommodation on Rankin St, Squire is now located in a state-of-the-art facility in Wihongi St which opened last December. Rotarians had a chance to look through and were impressed.

  • Kaikohe residents and others living in the mid-North residents of whatever ethnicity, culture or religion can rest assured that when it comes time to depart, they will be in good hands
