Dr Jim Salinger, honorary research graduate in the School of
Environment at Auckland University, and the president of the World
Meteorological Organization, Commission for Agricultural Meteorology
at Geneva (Switzerland) will present a series of lectures on climate
in the library at East Otago High School in Palmerston next month.
Organised by Hampden Community Energy Society and Waihemo
Wastebusters, the full details have yet to be arranged, but lectures
will be given over two days between Friday and Sunday May 14-16.
A commemoration service will be held in Waitati on Sunday April 25
starting at 10am, at the Waitati Hall and Cenotaph, followed by a
community morning tea (please bring a plate).
This is a community commemoration, and many people and local groups
help to make it happen. If you are keen to be involved and haven't
been in the past, please contact Helen Beamish (4821440) or Alasdair
Morrison (4822505). New ideas... new faces... most welcome.
This year we are keen to include more local "flavour" so if you have
family stories to share, or medals to show, please contact Helen or
Alasdair. We will be trying to incorporate those stories into our
service if possible.
