Eileen walked with us out of the RSA Building and around the front to see the wreathes which had been laid in front of a mural showing all the different colours of medal ribbons.
The library had display cabinets showing poppies and sharing about how they have developed and changed. It tells of their origins and the meaning it has for ANZAC Day.
Inside the Papatoetoe Public Library there is a board which says, ‘To the Memory of those who Died in Two World Wars.’ It has the names of the people from Papatoetoe who died in WW1 and WW2. It is there because this library is a War Memorial Library!
We then walked along St George Street to the Youthline Building (the old Fire Station) to see the display organised by the Papatoetoe Historical Society.
