The Tatura Guardian - - News - — Barb Hal­li­well and Edith Brad­bury

The Tatura Probus Club meet­ing, held on March 23, was the an­nual gen­eral meet­ing and the fol­low­ing mem­bers were elected to the executive com­mit­tee:

Pres­i­dent Bill Woods, vice-pres­i­dent Ev Leahy, sec­re­tary Wendy Wil­son and trea­surer Ge­off McMullen.

The var­ied po­si­tions, such as trips or­gan­iser, will be de­cided at the first com­mit­tee meet­ing.

It re­ally was a vi­brant meet­ing with Tony Ma­son from Ro­tary pre­sid­ing over the elec­tion of of­fice bear­ers, fol­lowed by a spe­cial morn­ing tea.

The guest speaker was John David­son, who was ac­com­pa­nied by his wife Maria from Kialla East.

John and Maria are en­thu­si­as­tic api­arists and told us themeth­ods they use to pro­duce their honey.

John took up bee­keep­ing in 1962 in Queens­land where he learned the tech­nique in­clud­ing the smok­ing, which calms the bees; how­ever, John and Maria very rarely use smoke and have only been stung twice.

John ex­plained the work­ings of the hive and the Queen Bee and her eggs.

It was an in­ter­est­ing talk and John was bom­barded with ques­tions from the mem­bers.

Wendy Wil­son thanked John on be­half of the club and pre­sented him with a Probus pen.

The an­nual games day was held on March 30 at Cussen Park.

Af­ter a pic­nic lunch the con­tes­tants played games, such as darts and hooky, but the high­light was the boot throw. Ev­ery­one agreed it was a mar­vel­lous af­ter­noon.

Man in charge: Barb Hal­li­well with Probus pres­i­dent Bill Woods.

Guest speaker: Maria and John David­son and Wendy Wil­son.

Ready to play: The games day con­tes­tants.
