Oh, you can't imagine the anger and frustration this morning. The other day, my soggy Western Leader arrived. I dutifully removed the free rubber band and unwrapped my paper. I left it to dry on the bench.
This morning, it was a bit crunchy, but dry. I chucked the homes section into the recycling bin. We don't need it to start fires anymore.
I then, eagerly began my assault on the events of the past week+. The silly comments of many of my neighbours. The news stories that don't give many facts, but lots of opinions.
Then I came to the last page.
I went back through. Searching.
I then went from back to front. Searching.
Where was it? Where was my sudoku? Where was my crossword puzzle? Was it in the Home section? No.
Curse you Western Leader!! You have let me down for the last time.
(These are the kinds of rubbish complaints I love about Neighbourly. I assume that the WL was a couple of pages of news and comments short of needing another sheet and had to cut the games section. Oh well.)
Imagine receiving this pamphlet in your letterbox. Would you be compelled to donate?
In 1923 this was sent out to Auckland's citizens, requesting help to raise the remaining £50,000 of the total £200,000 which was needed to build the new Auckland War Memorial Museum. It included a call to donate, initial drawings of the planned Museum and a list of early donors.
The people of Auckland came through and all the funds were raised! The new Auckland Museum was opened on 28 November 1929.
We’re celebrating 90 years of Auckland Museum in Auckland Domain. Read more about the origins of the building here.
Christmas is all about sharing time, gifts and good food with family and friends. Sadly, this isn’t always a reality for many Kiwis. Statistics show that one in five Kiwi children are living in households without access to enough (healthy) food.
You can make a difference. By donating a Christmas Box, for only $30, you will contribute to feeding a family of four to six people for up to a week!
“Without Christmas Box, we would not be having Christmas. We can now have Christmas dinner and enough food to last for a while. You have brought joy to our family and smiles on our kids faces.” – Christmas Box recipient.
