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

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
