In­ter­views prove big hit

The Tatura Guardian - - News - Phone pres­i­dent Bill Woods on 5824 1927 for any club in­quiries.

The Tatura Probus Club held its monthly meet­ing on July 27 when it was de­cided to have the ‘‘mike in­ter­views’’ again with sport as the topic for July.

The club’s ‘‘Jack of all Trades’’ — mem­ber Ge­off McMullen — wan­dered around ask­ing mem­bers about their sport­ing days.

It seems a lot of us were — and some still are — very in­ter­ested in sport, such as Betty Cur­tis who switched from cro­quet to bowls some years ago and is still play­ing.

This is al­ways a pop­u­lar seg­ment.

The guest speaker was Mooroopna Probus Club pres­i­dent Athol Chap­man who has led a var­ied and in­ter­est­ing life.

He spoke to mem­bers about trav­el­ling ex­ten­sively when he was young as well as later on with his wife Gwen, to visit their chil­dren who live over­seas.

He at­tained his com­mer­cial pilot li­cence and spoke about the time he was in Queens­land when Cy­clone Tracey struck.

He also worked for Ard­mona for 37 years and in that time de­vel­oped the well-known Snack Packs prod­uct.

Athol is very com­mu­nity-minded, help­ing on var­i­ous com­mit­tees, such as Aus­tralia Day, Red Cross and nu­mer­ous oth­ers.

Tatura Probus Club pres­i­dent Bill Woods thanked Athol for speak­ing about the in­ter­est­ing story of his life.

Merle Krause has re­cently re-joined the club and the club is pleased to have her back once again.

The up­com­ing lunch date is set for Au­gust 31 at The Last Straw in Shep­par­ton.

Come along to the Top Ho­tel in Tatura for the club’s meet­ing, held on the fourth Thurs­day of the month at 10 am — be our guest; you will be warmly wel­comed.

Grat­i­tude: Tatura Probus Club pres­i­dent Bill Woods thanks guest speaker Athol Chap­man.

In­ter­view: Mem­bers Edith Brad­bury and Ge­off McMullen chat all things sport dur­ing the

mike in­ter­views’’.
