Boxing champ visits Museum

In 1961 ex-Patea man Denis McKenna won the New Zealand Featherweight Boxing Championship; his photograph is part of our exhibition on South Taranaki’s sporting heritage. Last week Denis visited Aotea Utanganui Museum of South Taranaki and we took a quick photo of the champ with his photograph.

Thanks for calling in Denis, it was great to have you visit.
