Te Horo’s heritage to be ‘flagged’

If you’re a local, maybe a bit on the creative side, and have some knowledge of Te Horo’s valuable rural heritage, you could be the winner of tickets to attend ‘The 100 Year Party’ celebrations to be held at Te Horo Community Hall on 25th October. You would also take away a basket of Te Horo’s renowned country goodies. All you need to do is design a flag for the newly installed flagpole outside the community hall.

All entries are to be received by Friday 19th September, and local judges include Barbara Harford-Silas of Te Horo Harvest products, David Bird, Gabion 1 and hall committee member, Barbara Chatters.

For further details and competition rules contact Jenny 364 6347 or tewaka@gmail.com

Sing for your supper

An old time sing-a-long is planned for Friday, September 19th, from 6pm to 8pm, at Te Horo Hall. Lois Risely will be your piano player for the evening, presenting tunes from the past. You’ll probably know a lot of these ‘oldies’ – if not, song sheets will be supplied.

Lois was a music teacher in the district, and currently tours Kapiti retirement homes with her sing-a-long style of entertainment.

The BYO event includes tea and coffee, hot chips and sausage sizzle, all for “old fashioned prices” – just $5 at the door.

The culmination of hall centenary events is on Saturday 25th October, with ‘The 100 Year Party.’ This promises to be a great ‘knees-up’ – more next month.
