March 2011


Greetings to all lovers of Waiheke history!


Annual General Meeting this Sunday

Jan Scott will be the featured speaker at our AGM this Sunday, 27 March 2011, at 2PM at the Museum, 165 Onetangi Straight.  Jan has been connected with Rocky Bay all her life, and will speak on several little-known aspects of the history of that area.  Come along (and bring friends) for what promises to be a fascinating presentation.


The AGM will also feature a brief business meeting where we shall elect officers and hear reports from the president and treasurer.


What's new on the website?

If you haven't visited the Historical Society's website at http://www.waihekemuseum.org.nz lately, have a look at some of the new items in the 'History Buffs' section:



Suggestions and contributions to the website are always welcome.


2011 subscriptions are now payable

You have probably received a letter from our president/treasurer, Jan Vale, asking you to renew your membership in the Historical Society for 2011.  Subs are only $15 for the year.  We value your continued support; please send in your subs soon, or better yet, bring them to the AGM this Sunday.
