Otago have 30 members and our monthly meetings are held in members homes who wish to accommodate up to 16 people, sometimes 20.
At present it is less than once every nine months as we do not meet during June, July and August. In July we go to a restaurant decided my suggestions and a show of hands for our Mid Winters Lunch.
January is always a social day at Veronica and Laurie Macmillan’s with pot luck lunch and afternoon tea.
