Grant received for repainting
Thanks to a generous grant from the New Hope Op Shop, the Society can now proceed with some much-needed repainting of Day Cottage, the Police Cell, and the toilet block. Thank you, New Hope!
The History Quiz
That’s right — a trivia quiz with no science, no rugby, no Hollywood! We plan on making it a regular event for the Historical Society. Members and non-members welcome.
Wharf-to-Wharf Fun Run
Saturday, 16 January 2016
Once again, our Museum provided water to passing runners. A fun time was had by all!
Dixie Day’s book Waiheke Pioneers, the standard reference for early European settlement on Waiheke, finally has an index — after 25 years! The index can be purchased at the Museum for $4 if you already have the book, or $3 if you purchase the book too.
