From Coastal Otago Branch newsletter, August 2012:
150 issues of the Coastal Otago newsletter
Congratulations to us all for the branch to reach 150 newsletters!
The first three were photocopied in the same format as today. Then they were reproduced using a stencil created using a typewriter (an old manual one!). The first I have is un-numbered and undated.
It reported on a meeting people interested in tree crops held on 3 February 1988. It announced an AGM to officially reinstate the Coastal Otago Branch. There were a couple of recipes for possum repellents, a short article on walnuts and another on acid rain.
