1902 sos solar dropinSouthern Otways Sustainable Solar Energy Community Drop-in
@ Apollo Bay Senior Citizens Centre, 4 Whelan St, Apollo Bay

Have you ever wondered…

Is it true that I can reduce my power bills if I install solar panels?

Batteries, are they worth the cost?

Can I take part in the community bulk buy scheme?

Am I eligible for the $2,225 Vic Government solar rebate?

…then Drop-in

Whether you are a resident, holiday home owner, business person or member of a local community group, this is a fantastic opportunity as the Federal and State Governments are offering great subsidies and financing for you to make the move to renewable energy!

If you have a solar array installed (either here, elsewhere, on-grid, off-grid, now or in the past) it would be great if you could join us at the event to share your experiences with others. We have a table set aside for folks who would like a personal view on what installing solar means (rather than a technical overview or a sales pitch). Any support which you are able to provide between 2-4 would be greatly appreciated even if it's only for a short time.

facebookfindusWe will also have an info table on the Apollo Bay foreshore on Sat 26 Jan from 9:00 - 12:00. 

Always looking for folks to help setup and manage these events on the day.

Apollo Bay Discussion Group @ the SS Casino Room, Apollo Bay Hotel
Guest Speaker: Andrew Connor, Lecturer in Ancient History, Monash University
Topic: “Looking for the ‘Real’ Kleopatra: Queen, Enemy of Rome and Legend”

1902 dg kleopatraKleopatra VII, the last ruler of the mighty Ptolemaic Empire, is one of the most instantly recognisable figures from antiquity. Her deeds or legends, legacy and identity are debated around the world. The image that predominates is of a beautiful, extravagant seductress, often clad—if clothed—in very little at all, and played by Elizabeth Taylor (or Vivien Leigh).

But what did ancient historians and archaeologists know about the “real” Kleopatra? Building on surviving literature, everyday texts preserved on papyrus, sculpture, coinage, and more, we will view Kleopatra as ruler of a vast, still-powerful monarchy and associated bureaucracy, as a powerful woman in a time of nearly unbridled patriarchy, as a survivor in a real-life “game of thrones,” and as a target of vicious Roman propaganda blaming her for the outbreak of war between Augustus and Marc Antony. How was she remembered by a Roman culture that hated and was captivated by her, and by later works - mediaeval Islamic scholars, Renaissance painters, and modern filmmakers? In short: once we strip away the layers of confusion, misogyny, and legend, who really was Kleopatra?

Andrew Connor is the Lecturer in Ancient History in the Centre for Ancient Cultures at Monash University. His work focuses on the temples of Roman Egypt - their economic infrastructure, relationship with the Roman state, and eventual collapse in the 3rd century CE. He completed his PhD in Ancient History in the Department of Classics at the University of Cincinnati, and taught at the Cincinnati and Xavier University before heading to Australia. He currently teaches Roman, Classical Greek, and Hellenistic history and archaeology, along with Greek and Latin language, at the 1st year through Honours levels. He publishes editions of documentary texts preserved on papyri on topics from the Ptolemaic, Roman, and Byzantine periods in Egypt. He lives in Elwood, and in his free time is a member of the Port Melbourne Football Club.

The meeting opens at 6.30pm to allow you to place your food order and be seated for Andrew to commence at 7pm. The Hotel offers a fixed price menu of $20 but you may order from the regular menu. Pink bowls are on each table for donations. Donations are optional but all received are distributed back into the local community.

This event is open to everybody.  If you would like to attend, please contact Margaret Murphy by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone (03) 5237 6640.
