Don't Forget we turn 150 years old in 2013

Hard to believe that in just five short years Maungaturoto, Paparoa and Matakohe will celebrate 150 years of settlement. Celebrations like this take planning and some willing people to get involved. How about giving Alan Flower a call and having a chat. This is important enough that we should be getting a group together and networking with other interested people in the area. I'm in the process of digitising some of our photos and now well used and tired looking local history books. A CD-rom is available at the Community Library for anyone keen to have a read of the Maungaturoto Co-operative Dairy Company History 1902 - 1952. Full digitised version is below - enjoy
