This weeks meeting at Cobb and Co.
Denis Aitken, a dairy farmer who is an industry expert will talk about the industry in todays world. 
 
Last weeks speaker 
James Kettle from Dunedin Solar spoke about Solar heating. The efficiency of the panels has improved by about 80% since the early days.  This makes it more financially viable for individuals to instal and have a reasonable payback on the cost of the equipment. There are many different configurations and sizes of installation and cost. Surplus electricity can be sold back to electricity companies. Some equipment will allow you to programme for the time of the day you want to take advantage of using the power generated. James brought along a sample of a Tesla battery which could be installed to store power for future use. There are a lot of tools to monitor production and use. 
 
Future meeting venue 
The result of the poll was for a return to the University Staff Club which will occur at the beginning of May.  Pres Phil believed we should use Cobb and Co as a back up if there were times when the Staff Club was unavailable.  
 
Dunedin Rotary Club gong.
We were called through to dinner by a gong presented to the Dunedin Rotary Club by the Auckland Rotary Club in the 1920's - presumably when Dunedin Rotary was chartered!! 
 
Anzac Day.
Pres Phil advertised the RSA choir which would preform for an hour in St Pauls from 6.30pm  Cost $20 
Ann promoted the Southern Heritage Trust annual walk around service peoples graves in the Northern Cemetery starting at the Sextons Cottage at 2pm-free
 
Bowel cancer follow up. 
Les mentioned that we will be being asked at some time and places ( not yet known)  to follow up on our commitment to previous speaker Margaret Fitzgerald to be available to hand out leaflets around supermarkets etc 
 
What's Up 
Russell filling in for Pip Chapman mentioned that he had been at a gathering for Pip's 70th birthday ( a few years ago) when there was a quiz on Pip's life. Russell claimed he knew more about Pip than Pip! 
 
Now a grandad with one coming up 1 year old and a grandson on the way in August.
 
Being brought up on a farm her was a bulldozer driver when 13 so was fami8liar with machinery. he had a few interesting career options before the less lively life as an accountant ( although Russell likes to spice that profession up a bit). He mentioned working for Tricon Plastics in the North Island where after doing accounting in the day time he joined the nightshift in the factory for the evening shift.  Because of his ability with machinery he found he could turn out the required number of plastic bags in 2 hours which others took 8 hours to make.
Russell is concerned at the stress that covid has caused in the community to the more fragile members of our community which he has noticed with some meals on wheels recipients. Russell does extra runs associated with the old Dunedin North run.
