Roll of hon­our spruced up

Te Puke Times - - NEWS -

Te Puke High School is on the hunt for fam­ily and wha¯nau of those men­tioned on its World War I and II roll of hon­our.

With money from Te Puke Ro­tary Club and the RSA Char­i­ta­ble Trust, the roll of hon­our board has been re­fur­bished and moved to the school hall en­trance.

School grounds­man Kim Hi­naki is a member of Te Puke Ro­tary and was asked if the ser­vice club could as­sist with the cost.

He then asked mem­bers of Te Puke RSA who sug­gested the char­i­ta­ble trust, which ul­ti­mately paid for the re­fur­bish­ment.

The newly re­fur­bished roll of hon­our will be un­veiled on Septem­ber 17 at 9am and Kim is keen to in­vite fam­ily/ wha¯nau of those whose names are on it to the un­veil­ing.

He says many of the names are still as­so­ci­ated with Te Puke.

Any rel­a­tive who wants to at­tend can call the school of­fice on 573 9769.
