  • Hi my friends and fellow members. In reading through the newsletter at all the activities available, and the reports of all the trips, days out and shows etc. that people have been enjoying, I’m thankful to all the leaders and organisers of these activities. Obviously, there is such a range of different things to go to that there is something for everybody. Why then, do we find that there are members who take part in no activities, and only socialize with others at the monthly meeting? We must all make an effort to bring these people along. On 5th April I attended a meeting of executives from Probus Clubs in our Cluster. Only half of the clubs were represented, and ours was one of the few whose vitality was obvious. I look forward to seeing you all at the May Meeting and at various activities in the weeks ahead.

    TRAVEL TALES - Kathy & Malcolm The April Travel Tales Meeting saw an excellent presentation by Carolyn Cahill of her trip to Japan with her sister and nephew. Her nephew had been an exchange student in Japan for a year and was able to guide and plan their tour. They were able to share cultural experiences of life in Japan. Carolyn explained the décor of private housing and various food dishes, as well as the scenic views of highlights of Japan. Thanks, Carolyn, for a very interesting presentation. Our next Travel Tales on the third Wednesday of the month will be on Wednesday, 16th May commencing at 7 pm for 7.30 pm. At this meeting, Bob Ferguson will share his experiences in Britain and Europe. Everybody is welcome to attend. Many thanks to those people who have already presented this year and to others in the group who are busy preparing something for the remainder of the year. Please note that there will be NO Travel Tales in June and July. We will resume on the third Wednesday of August. Kathy & Mal
