September 2008

Greetings to all lovers of Waiheke history!

We'd like to let you know of some upcoming events and opportunities for you to get involved with your society.

Open Day, Sunday 28th September
In conjunction with this year's Auckland Heritage Festival, the Waiheke Museum will hold an Open Day next Sunday, the 28th.  We shall have many things to celebrate:

Come see all that's new at the Museum!  Gates open at noon; entry by koha.  Refreshments will be available.

Jazz Festival, Labour Weekend
The Waiheke Museum is honoured to be a part of Briar Ross's jazz festival to be held over Labour Weekend.  The Museum grounds will rock to the music on Saturday and Sunday, 25th and 26th October.  Mark your calendars, and keep an eye on our website (www.waihekemuseum.org.nz) as details are confirmed.

We need an archivist
Do you love mucking about in old papers and photographs?  Are you a good organiser?  Then we need your skills!  Kit Nelson, our archivist for these past many years, is retiring.  If you are interested in filling Kit's able shoes, please speak to any committee member, or E-mail us at info@waihekemuseum.org.nz.

Volunteers sought
As with all volunteer organisations, the Historical Society is always looking to get its members involved.  Would you like to join a great bunch of people in preserving and presenting Waiheke's unique history?  Here are some ways you can do that:
