The Puhoi Hall Committee would like to invite everyone to The Puhoi Centennial Hall on Sunday 3rd May between 2.30 pm – 6 pm to celebrate the completion of the re-roofing of the Hall.
The committee would like to thank the community for their on going support in fund raising events which help maintain the hall to such a high standard.
Come along and meet your neighbours and enjoy your beautiful hall.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Kind Regards and thanks
Richard Hern has kindly allowed us to reproduce his fascinating speech made at the Puhoi ANZAC commemoration on Saturday, 25th April 2015
Maori Television has an excellent series on with Pio Terei on the Te Araroa trail – the Pakiri to Puhoi episode is certainly worth a watch. Some familiar places and faces – http://www.maoritelevision.com/tv/shows/te-araroa-tales-trails/S01E004/te-araroa-tales-trails-series-1-episode-4
We have reports of scammers in the area so please be careful and look out for any vulnerable neighbours who may be approached for these pests.
There a tree people who look genuine who are asking for cash up front. Like they cut down a tree, then demand more money to remove the rubbish. Also they charge excessive fees. My suggestion is use a well known contractor and talk to friends for advice first.
The newly-formed children’s Bohemian folk dance group, to meet for an hour weekly at 4pm, (refreshments provided) already has three families committed. Watch for notification for next week’s day and venue or contact Jenny Schollum, 4220472.
Park before 8.45am on the Puhoi Pioneers Memorial Park or out on the road and gather on the bridge, facing the memorial gates, for the ceremony, which will include the singing of the national anthem, an address by Richard Hern, and the raising and lowering of the New Zealand flag to the playing of the Last Post and Reveille by bugler Oliver Furneaux.
Then process to the hall for light refreshments and a display of the military records of the Bohemian dead of the two world wars. We will be led by the Scouts and Fire Brigade and any other uniformed groups who wish to attend, hopefully including the children of our local schools in their uniforms. These will be followed by the rest of our community.
If it is wet, all the ceremonies will take place in the hall. Please visit the library for their special Anzac display and home-baked biscuits.
Starting at 9am, the commemoration formalities will take about an hour, while the library display will be open from 9am to 3pm.
Thanks to the Puhoi Historical Society for organising this ceremony, and the library group for their display.
