Hey, Joe, Whadyaknow?
Former Pres.-Elect Joe Collie is loving his new gig at WZID in Manchester. There's less stress now that he's "just a D.J." with occasional commercial work. He's on the air 3p-7p, Monday-Friday but was able to attend our meeting as he is filling in for the morning show for the next two weeks.

Pres. Larry Murphy read a thank-you note from Rae Mello-Andrews, RN, Clinical Education, Lakes Region General Hospital, for the two Crash Carts for Kids that will be going into Surgical Services and the Pediatrics Unit in Laconia.

Guest Speaker
This writer introduced Rolf Dutzmann, former Research Engineering Manager for the Eaton Corporation, to the club. With a background in various U.S. missile development programs from the 1960's-on he has a keen interest in NASA and how we have benefited indirectly from their space technology. From medicine to communications to Tang, 30,000 NASA spin-offs have found their way into our daily lives. For every $1 budgeted to NASA, the country realizes a $7-$9 return on its investment. For more information on NASA's spin-offs, go to

Rocket Scientist Rolf Dutzmann explains what NASA has done for us lately.

After our regular meeting we will reconvene with Lt. Ed Darling at Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid/Communications Division who will provide a PowerPoint presentation and tour of the dispatch facility. (Turn onto the old Meredith Center Road off North Main St., take the second left, before the prison, and park where the sign reads: "Do Not Enter." As they are technically on the prison campus, all vehicles or saddlebags must be locked and no contraband ((tobacco)) is allowed.) His presentation should run about half an hour depending on questions.
