A Message from President Mike
It’s hard to believe that my Presidential year is drawing to a close. It has been a great experience and I have really enjoyed it, thanks, in large part, to the great support I have had from the committee and of course, you the members.
It has been a year of fairly major change for our Club with the move from our home since foundation, the Belrose Bowling Club (now Club Belrose), to the Uniting Church in Morgan Road, Belrose. I think that the move has gone very smoothly and I sense that everyone is happy and comfortable in our new “home”.
I have covered the year in review in some detail in my President’s Report which you all should have by now, so I won’t go over that ground again here.
As this is my last newsletter message, I might indulge myself by “beating the drum” about my favourite subject…EFT and all things digital! I encourage you to pay for all Probus activities via EFT (more than 95% of all bank transaction in Australia are now electronic!). It not only gives you a record of payment but also makes life easier for our busy event organisers. Many of our activities are now also available to be booked electronically via our wonderful website (thanks again Ross) and I encourage you to use that facility wherever possible.
And finally, thank you for having me as your President for last year. It’s been a real pleasure for me and I step down knowing that the Club will be in excellent hands with Cherry Robinson “at the helm” for the coming year.
