Within the celebration week two public events have been scheduled for Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st.
Construction of Monavale Homestead, home these days to Capernwray New Zealand, was completed in 1910 and in this year, 2010, 100th birthday celebrations are being held from Saturday the 13th of November 2010 through to Sunday 21st November 2010.
