Book sale aids his­tor­i­cal so­ci­ety

Matamata Chronicle - - News/opinion -

On be­half of the Mata­mata His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, I wish to thank ev­ery­one who worked so hard to make our book fair such a great suc­cess again this year.

Just over $8000 so far has been raised from the sale of books etc so gen­er­ously do­nated by peo­ple in the Mata­mata dis­trict.

Funds raised will be used to pay for the pho­tos, text pan­els and au­dio vi­su­als to tell the story of Dairy­ing in the Mata­mata Dis­trict in the new cow­shed and at­tached barn at the Firth Tower Mu­seum.

We are very grate­ful to all the peo­ple who as­sisted us in so many ways to or­gan­ise this project.

Mem­bers worked hard over many months to sort the books and mag­a­zines into cat­e­gories.

They trans­ported them to the venue and set up all the boxes on the ta­bles and tres­tles which they had taken there.

A team of mem­bers and friends sold the books, kept the ta­bles tidy and cleared up when it was over. We want to thank ev­ery­one who sup­ported this fundrais­ing project again this year.
