Heritage Trust 2017 Cal­en­dar

The Tribune (NZ) - - SAVOUR -

Once again the Palmer­ston North Heritage Trust has pro­duced their an­nual cal­en­dar and this year it show­cases ‘Our An­i­mal Heritage’. With a pas­toral based econ­omy, an­i­mals have long played an im­por­tant role in Manawatū farm­ing life; as live­stock and as work­ers. As well, cer­tain an­i­mals are im­por­tant purely for the com­pany and plea­sure they pro­vide. The 13 his­tor­i­cal im­ages in­cluded in this year’s cal­en­dar cap­ture some of the an­i­mals who have been so im­por­tant to us, in a va­ri­ety of ways. The Palmer­ston North Heritage Trust was set up in 1997 un­der the aus­pices of the Palmer­ston North City Coun­cil. The Trust’s main ob­jec­tive is to en­cour­age public aware­ness of the need to de­velop, main­tain and pre­serve archival ma­te­rial and other records of his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance con­nected to the City of Palmer­ston North and its sur­round­ing re­gion. The pro­duc­tion of an an­nual cal­en­dar, us­ing lo­cal his­tor­i­cal im­ages, is just one of the ac­tiv­i­ties un­der­taken by the Trust.

The cal­en­dars are avail­able from the Heritage Team, 2nd Floor, Cen­tral Li­brary, 4 The Square, Palmer­ston North for $10 each.
