Max Millar

I have always lived and farmed in the Geraldine Area. I am a past Chairman of the Geraldine Vintage Car and Machinery Club and am a member of the South Canterbury Vintage Car Club. As my Grandfather was in the First World War, I am very proud to be able to bring a commemoration of this nature to Geraldine.


Wayne O'Donnell
Vice Chairman

I am a local Geraldine resident and businessman and have an active interest in community development, support & sponsorship. Currently I am a director and trustee of several companies and chairman of the Geraldine Vintage Car & Machinery Club and a member of two other motoring enthusiast clubs. My Great-Grandfather served in the First World War from 1914-1918 and my grandfather in World War II & I currently have a cousin serving in the NZ Airforce. My hope is that by bringing a commemoration of this caliber to Geraldine we will be able to involve the entire community in a positive experience beneficial to all who attend.

I was born, bred and educated in Geraldine and have enjoyed a variety of jobs over the course of my career spanning retail, local authority and private enterprise.  My wife Trish and I raised 2 children who as adults have spread their wings to pursue their passions in life.

I am involved in a variety of local organisations, including the South Canterbury Vintage Car Club, the Geraldine Historical Society and am a life member of Geraldine St Johns Ambulance. My father served in WWll and my immediate family has strong connections with the RSA in the South Canterbury region.

I feel that the event run by the Anzac Trust is a very good educational tool for younger members of the community to learn while also allowing the elder members to remember and reminisce the times of past wars.


Janene Adams
Event Coordinator

I moved to Geraldine nearly 8 years ago with my husband and two children and we feel very lucky to live in such a great town.  I have been involved with several community groups and am the coordinator for Go Geraldine in addition to the role for Anzac in Action 2018.

I look forward to helping to develop and grow this amazing family event that is both fun and educational and is run by our community for the enjoyment of our community!

I moved to Geraldine in 2002 to become the principal of Geraldine High School.  When I retired at the end of 2009, Jo and I decided to stay in Geraldine because we love the community and have put our roots down here.  Currently I am semi-retired, working two days per week as the Manager of Geraldine Resource Centre.  I am also currently elected as Geraldine's councillor on the Timaru District Council.  These roles, and other voluntary positions that I take on (such as Treasurer for this Trust), collectively involve me in a diverse range of Geraldine community groups and activities, which I thoroughly enjoy.  I am delighted to support the Geraldine Anzac Commemorations Trust because their event helps greatly to keep a significant part of our community's history and culture alive, relevant and meaningful to all generations.  "We will remember them".
