Celebrating a Successful Quarter Century

Museum Patron, Harry Lendrum, had the honour of cutting a large celebration birthday cake that was then shared around the crowd.

Locals turned up in force last Saturday to help Dargaville Museum celebrate their twenty fifth birthday.

It was very happy day, says Museum manager, Pene McKenzie. It was especially good to see so many families being introduced to the Museum by their parents.

A competition for the young ones and another for adults proved to be very popular. It involved a questionnaire with answers found somewhere among the many displays. Also popular were the running of the historic gum washing machine and the model trains.

Light lunches, morning and afternoon teas and a sausage sizzle kept hunger pains at bay. President Don Elliott welcomed visitors and thanked the many volunteers who have done so much work over the 25 years. He noted that because they were free of any outside political influence they have been able to keep their independence. But it can only work if there are willing volunteers. Its your Museum.
