A group of Deaf people get together at John and Verna McRae’s place before heading to Orewa, Auckland for the Annual Picnic organised by Auckland Deaf Society. There they participate in activities such as sprint races, three-legged races, and tug-of-war competitions, as well as enjoying a picnic.

Auckland Deaf Society continue to run annual picnics for its members, and members continue to compete in social competitions on the day.
