Thames (NZ): True Tales of Thames Hospital 1868-2018 Book RELEASED

The book launch was part of the opening of the Thames Hospital 150 Commemoration events this weekend.

Sadly the hall was packed to overflowing with a combined Wine & Cheese. But we got there and the book was launched.

Some speeches by Mr Paul Silvester (TH150 Chair & Co-Editor), Geraldine Dunwoodie (True Tales Co-ordinator The Treasury), Rod Perkins (last Thames Hospital Board CEO) and myself.

The response has been amazing, the worst part being so many now wish they had contributed a maybe in the future another will be in the pipeline.

For now the book is on-sale at The Finance Office, Thames Hospital or at Carsons Bookshop, Thames. Cost $40.
