Takaka Library: HerStory - Jane Baird

Friday 10th August 2018

2018 marks the 125th anniversary of the signing of the Electoral Act that gave all New Zealand women the right to vote.

We are celebrating Golden Bay women and their stories as part of our Suffrage 125 celebrations.

In this event Jane Baird recalls a long and varied life in Golden Bay working at the Cottage Hospital, the telephone exchange, as a guide at Rawhiti Cave, possum skinning, tramping Whitcombe Pass and trips to D'Urville and Puangiangi Islands.

Jane has some wonderful photos to accompany her talk which will be shown on a screen as she talks.

Koha. All welcome.
