An illuminated address to George Mackie. The illuminated address was presented to Mackie on 13 August 1908 by members of the district of Kaimata after he was dissmissed from his job as manager of the Kaimata Creamery.
The document states:
"To George Mackie, Esq.
We the undersigned residents in the neighbourhood of Inglewood and Kaimata wish to express our appreciation of the active part you have taken in all public matter in the Kaimata district during the ten years you have resided at that place, and of the kindly feelings which have always existed between us.
We realise that the success which has attended all the public functions which with you have been connected has been largely due to the energy and business ability which you have displayed.
Some of us are shareholders in the Moa Farmers Co-op Dairy Co., Ltd. and some of us are also suppliers to the Kaimata Creamery belonging to that company and we particularly wish to express our regret at the circumstances which have resulted in our losing your services as Manager at that creamery, a position which you have filled for ten years with unqualified success.
To Mrs. Mackie and yourself we all wish to tender our best wishes for a happy and prosperous future wherever your lot may be cast.
We are, Dear Sir, yours very truly
