IN THE SMITHY
Thanks to the Mendocino Rotary Club, the marine aquarium in the Smithy has a new chiller to keep the aquarium water about 50 degrees. It’s more powerful and quieter, and will be able to keep the aquarium cold even when we have hot weather; the old chiller had a lot of trouble keeping up.
