The Weekend

This is a busy weekend!

First there is the Putaruru Lions and Putaruru Fire Brigade annual FOOD BANK APPEAL. This is from 9:00am onwards. Listen for the sirens in your street and please give generously.

It’s also a good time to check that the smoke detectors in your house are working.

Later we have the Pride in Putaruru Business Awards which this year are being held in the Putaruru College Hall. Who will the winners be this year? During the evening there is also the auction of a Team New Zealand signed NZ flag.

The signed Team NZ flag.

Oh, but wait there’s more – the Elections. These are from 9:00am until 7:00pm. Local polling booth details are here.

Is that it?

No! It’s daylight saving starting at 2:00am this Sunday morning – clocks forward one hour. Daylight saving ends on 1 April 2018 when the clocks go back the hour.

Monday follows as usual, but as the classic lyrics go, “Tell me why I don’t like Monday’s,” (and the reason for those Bob Geldof, Boomtown Rats lyrics is not pretty). The video is provided below, but maybe reset your silicon chip first.
