A Message from President Cherry
This has been a busy month with a good attendance at the musical Billy Elliot which was thoroughly enjoyed. Shortly there will be our Dinner at Pittwater Training Restaurant, to which there has been a sell out response.
Shortly after our November meeting, 27 members and friends leave for Japan and I would like to take this opportunity to wish them a wonderful trip, full of new experiences and safe travelling. Particular mention must be made of Russell and Graeme, the co-arrangers, who have devoted an incredible amount of time organising the itinerary.
Local outings and bus touring have become like all of our activities much enjoyed by members, however it is disappointing there have been no applicants to relieve Colin after his four years of great work in this area. Unless this position (which could be shared) is filled we may have to look forward to a gap in this activity. We are also awaiting applicants for Vice President and possibly Guest Speakers.
A new club has been formed, meeting at our venue, called Davidson-Belrose and our waiting list has been reduced by seven people who have chosen to join this new club and enjoy the benefits of Probus.
In closing, I would like to say I’m sure all members will agree we are a happy, friendly club but also we do have some members with health issues. When we don’t feel our best nothing is better than a happy friendly inclusion to lift our spirits.
Warm regards, Cherry.
