ANZAC Day 2021 and more

A reminder from one of our partners for an up-coming virtual service (and several other items in their monthly newsletter).

Kia Ora MichaelWe are all thankfully making that glorious slow return to our typical outdoor  community lifestyles, and SF Kiwis is excited that we may soon all be meeting again in person, with safety first and foremost, of course.


ANZAC Day – 2021

We are proud to announce that a small joint Kiwi-Aussie ANZAC DAY commemoration will be held in Golden Gate Park on April 25th and you are invited to watch it streaming live from 10AM. Please register at the link below, in order to get the link and password for the stream. For full details please see the flyer below, and if you want to make your own ANZAC Biscuits, scroll down for the tried and true Edmonds Cookbook recipe! 

We want to hear from you!

SFKiwis is very interested to hear what you look forward to from this uniquely Kiwi organization in the coming months  – you will receive a Survey Monkey soon, and we are hoping for new suggestions from our members, to keep our unique group vibrant and relevant for those of us who are temporarily or permanently calling the Bay Area “home”.

We also welcome you to be part of our brainstorming sessions. If a stint on the Board of our very own San Francisco SFKiwis organization sounds like your cup of tea, please drop us a line at and we’d love to chat about it.

Keep your eyes peeled for the Survey, and information down the road about a NZ Christmas Party, a Picnic, a Camp Out, Pub Nights and a visit to the NZ section of the wonderful Golden Gate Park Botanical Gardens.

Be well, Kia Kaha

From your friendly SFKiwis Board members


1/2 cup Flour                          50 gm Butter – rougly 3 1/2 tabsp
1/3 cup Sugar                         1 tablespoon Golden Syrup – Lyles from Amazon is OK
2/3 cup Coconut                      1/2 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 cup Rolled Oats                 2 tbsp boiling Water

Mix together Flour, Sugar, Coconut and Rolled Oats.
Melt Butter and Golden Syrup.
Dissolve Baking Soda in boiling Water and add to Butter and Golden Syrup.
Stir Butter mixture into dry ingredients.
Place large tablespoons – as large as you like – onto cold greased trays.
Flatten if you like them crisp.
Bake at 180 C – around 355 F degrees – for about 15 minutes, or until golden.


Some local stores like Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Amazon or Rockridge Market Place may have NZ ingredients for this, or reasonably adequate English substitutes.

Last week we found our favorites of NZ Butter, NZ bottled Water, NZ Wines, NZ Lamb, and NZ Cheeses, all ready to jump into our cart at Trader Joes, so you never know your luck!

NZAASF – SF Kiwis: Our mission is to promote and foster good relations between NZ and the US through a variety of social and cultural events held in the Bay Area.
