Former Kurow people called to muster

People who lived, worked and went to school in the Kurow area are being rounded up for a muster in June next year.

The Kurow Muster is a reunion being organised by John Currie and his sister Libby Johnston after ''four or five years talking about it''.

They have organised the reunion for March 4 to 6 next year and at the end of last month set up web and Facebook sites to notify people and encourage them to register.

The Facebook site had 127 likes, as of yesterday.

The Kurow Muster is a get-together for people who have lived, worked or been to school in the Kurow area, from Aviemore to Otekaieke and Hakataramea Valley to Mt Parker.

''Over the last few years we have talked with a lot of people who have moved out of the area and we mentioned we were thinking of organising a reunion and all said `go for it', so here it is,'' she said.

''It will give people a chance to catch up on old friends and colleagues.''

People are being encouraged to register as soon as possible. The deadline is the end of August.

The programme for the weekend will include a get-together on Friday, time to visit attractions with tours of the Waitaki dam and Kurow Winery, and a meal in the evening.
