Ongoing Project – Roll Back the Years
Having achieved the republication of Ron Cooke’s original old magazines in six volumes in 2016 the Society felt it was time to add to the archive with new material. A writing competition was held and the contributed stories, along with others, were published in an all new volume in the tradition of the enduring Roll Back the Years series.
After all, our history is our communal memories so the more who join in to retain it the better. 22 people, both current and ex-Taumarunui folk, put pen to paper and recorded memories of a wide range of the district’s history.
The Historical Society is very appreciative of those who wrote down their memories and encourage people to keep stories coming in so Roll Back the Years Volume 8 can be achieved in time.
