FROM THE NEWS DESK
This week we start our new series with the Morrinsville Museum, profiling some of the more unique and unknown taonga the facility holds. There are many items the museum would like help with, in terms of revealing more information on their historic value. The museum is keen to know more about where these items came from and what they were used for. The recent Morrinsville Chamber of Commerce, Business After 5 event was held at the museum and visitors there were given a chance to have a look around some of the displays and items, showing the town’s history and pride. It was great to be given the chance to read about the town’s history and see the number of items donated by families and individuals to the museum over the years. Reporter Katrina Tanirau starts the new series looking at a copper, kerosene powered soldering gun and another mysterious object museum staff are keen to find more information on. Maybe you can help solve the mystery? Turn over to page 4 and have a read.
