May 2014 - Members Day

On 24 May 2014 the Awarua Communications Museum hosted a formal visit by members of the museum..

This was an opportunity for members to view the progress made by a core group of museum volunteers in making the facility suitable for opening to the public. An enthusiastic group enjoyed the hospitality provided and happily entertained themselves exploring the treasures on display while a power cut delayed presentation of the introductory film - and also kept most of the Awarua Plains area in darkness.

With power restored, films were shown and the opportunity taken to appreciate the heritage theatre that forms a key part of the Museum's facilities.
