Following the awarding of the construction contract for the Carterton Events Centre earlier in the week, the ceremony for the 'turning of the first sod' and blessings of the site in Maori and English were held on Friday 8 October at 10 am.  This was Mayor Gary's last official function.   Gary turned the first sod beside the library, but he was at the controls of a small excavator rather than using the traditional spade - it suited the man better.
