In the Kaituna Hall last night a successful patriotic gift auction was held.
Besides a patriotic flag, numerous gifts of produce were sold by auction by Mr Frank Evans, of Masterton.
The flag, which was presented by Messrs S. and W. Mackay, booksellers, of Masterton, realised the splendid sum of £50 15s, the final purchaser being Mr Alex. McKenzie, who presented the flag to the children of the Kaituna school.
The gross proceeds of the evening will amount to approximately £115. A very enjoyable social was subsequently held.
