Hundreds of people celebrated Kaukapakapa's 150th anniver- sary during a sunny weekend. A mix n' mingle informal even- ing brought settlers' descendants together with newcomers to start celebrations on Friday. A lunch for past and present members on Saturday at the Kaukapakapa Hall was booked out. It featured a tableau of settler families and their lives in Kaukapakapa. Many also turned out for Sunday church services, parades and a district picnic with tra- ditional games at Sinclair Park The sun shone for us and people came from many parts of New Zealand to support the week- end,'' celebrations instigator Isla Willis says. From start to finish we had fun, and I would like to thank the sponsors who were so generous with their donations and the volunteers for all their time and effort.'' The highlights were many. It was also the first opportunity to see a video presentation of Alan Jordan's photographic collection which is now being updated with images from the weekend. Any proceeds from the weekend were initially destined for the Helensville Museum. But after the Pike River mining disaster, organisers agreed to make an additional donation to the disaster fund from raffles on Friday and Saturday.
