Lo­cal po­lice speak at meet­ing

Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE -

THE Probus meet­ing for Novem­ber fea­tured two out­stand­ing guest speak­ers from Stan­thorpe Po­lice.

John Thom­son spoke on traf­fic flow and driv­ing in a re­spon­si­ble and in a con­sid­er­ate man­ner, with re­spect and pre-empt­ing other drivers and cars on the road.

Ger­ard Brady in­formed us on re­cent break-ins in Stan­thorpe, what crim­i­nals were look­ing for and how we can best pre­vent it from hap­pen­ing in our own homes.

He also ex­plained how se­ri­ous drugs are and what to do in an emer­gency.

Both speak­ers were very in­for­ma­tive and en­ter­tain­ing. Well done.

A lot of be­hind-thescenes work was done this month in prepa­ra­tion for our Christ­mas Feast on Fri­day.

Ev­ery­one is look­ing for­ward to it as it will be a won­der­ful oc­ca­sion with great food, en­ter­tain­ment and gifts.

Also, we have started work­ing on the Probus Float for the Ap­ple and Grape Fes­ti­val next year.

Plans are com­pleted and print­ing and art­work is well un­der way.
