Race Night

The Puhoi Hall committee would like to thank everyone for their support for the “Race Night” fundraiser for the Puhoi Centennial Hall which was held in November.
We would like to thank all the sponsors who came up with wonderful prizes for the “Race Horse Owners” or were added to the wonderful raffle prize. Special thanks to Pat Backley who came up with the idea and managed to fit the kit in her luggage travelling back from London.
The sponsers included Puhoi Canoes, Waiwera Hot Pools , Sugar loaf Waiwera, Puhoi Organic Distillery, Puhoi Pub, Puhoi Cheese Cafe, Puhoi General Store, Puhoi Beauty, Table 19 Warkworth RSA, Lothlorien Wine, Pat and Graham Backley. Val and Mike Smith Pat and Fran Endemann and Judy Lyons plus any one else who I may have failed to mention . Please be assured that your donation was really appreciated. Thank you to all the committee members who worked so hard, and the community for attending the race meeting and/or buying raffle tickets. We managed to raise $1276.30 for the Hall plus $ 50 for the Puhoi Fire Brigade. The raffle was won by Judy Lyons.
The money will go to help pay for general expenses and towards the upgrading of the kitchen.
May we wish you all a Peaceful, Healthy and Happy 2017.

Puhoi Art Exhibition 2016

[via Val Smith]
Thank you to all the people who worked so hard for a successful Art Show this year held at the Puhoi Centennial Hall.
We had many sponsors including Wheels on Wairau, Puhoi Organic Distillery, Life Pharmacy, Nutri Metics, Lothlorien Wine, Puhoi Cheese, Gordon Harris and everyone who gave there valuable time to the
venture, especially Colleen Rutherford who took annual leave to take over the organising of the event. Her family also took time off work to help with the set up and clear up.
We had a lovely preview evening with wine and cheese plus wonderful music from our very own local Celtic Group.
So many people gave up their valuable time and it is all very much appreciated. I would like to thank all the artists who entered work and helped with the running of the exhibition. All the people who bought raffle tickets or left donations.
If I have failed to mention your donation I apologise but be assured it was very much appreciated.
We managed to raise $1000.00 for the Hall and $500.00 for the Puhoi Fire Brigade.
We wish you all a Healthy Peaceful and Happy 2017.
Kind Regards Val Smith
