The Annual General Meeting of the Society was held on 4 August. Instead of a speaker there was a film show.
Errol Maffey is an unpaid archivist, and has been recording local places, people and events on video and film for fifteen years. He showed two films, one on the Otaki Railway Station, and one on the Red House Cafe. The latter was particularly poignant as the century-old building had recently been completely destroyed by fire.
These fascinating films were very well received and Errol was thanked for showing them and for the work he does.
It was noted that donations would be a helpful contribution to this work, and also to the Community Patrol which keeps the town safe.
