Baker shares his

story

Tatura Probus club held its monthly meet­ing on Septem­ber 27 when pres­i­dent Ev Leahly opened the meet­ing by wel­com­ing guests and mem­bers.

Out­ings: Six­teen mem­bers en­joyed a lovely lunch at the Royal Mail in Mooroopna.

Oc­to­ber 18: We are look­ing for­ward to a trip to the si­los. Meet at V/Line at 9 am.

No­vem­ber 4: Con­cert at River­links, starts 2 pm. Anna gave our birth­day mem­bers a lit­tle gift.

Our guest speaker was Jeff Alexan­der who spoke of his young days as a baker. After his ap­pren­tice­ship he had a break and took up driv­ing trucks. Glenda and Ge­off bought the bak­ery 20 years ago, and what a jour­ney they have had en­ter­ing and win­ning shows all over Aus­tralia.

They cer­tainly put Tatura on the map with their beau­ti­ful vanilla slices.

They now em­ploy 23 staff and Jeff is keen to keep up the good name of his busi­ness. Glenda gave us a his­tory on the old wood oven that is still there.

They both agreed it was a lot of hard work but they love it and plan to stay as long as they can.

We all ap­pre­ci­ate what they have done for the town and wish them well for the fu­ture.

Our next meet­ing will be on Oc­to­ber 25 at the Tatura Com­mu­nity Cen­tre at 10 am.
