City club has 20th birth­day

The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR HEALTH -

Twenty years of the ‘‘three Fs - fun, fel­low­ship and friend­ship’’, were cel­e­brated re­cently by Palmer­ston North’s Fitzherbert Re­bus Club. The ‘‘three Fs’’ are the guid­ing prin­ci­ples of clubs af­fil­i­ated to Re­bus New Zealand.

Founded in 1997 as the Fitzherbert Probus Club, the club changed to Re­bus, along with many other Probus clubs around the coun­try, in 2016.

Na­tion­wide, Re­bus, an amal­gam of ‘‘Re­tired Busi­ness­peo­ple’’, pro­vided mem­bers with op­por­tu­ni­ties for out­ings and day-trips, in­ter­est group ac­tiv­i­ties, en­ter­tain­ment and guest speak­ers.

Fifty peo­ple, 10 of them foun­da­tion mem­bers, in­clud­ing the club’s first pres­i­dent, Don New­man and his wife Su­san Mun­ford, at­tended the cel­e­bra­tions at the Palmer­ston North Golf Club.

The club’s Mau­rice Brown said high­lights from a his­tory of the club were read out.

As part of the fun, Brown said mem­bers had been in­vited to bring along a photo of them­selves aged 20, and then had to iden­tify ev­ery­one else from the un­named num­bered im­ages.

That there were more misses than hits showed the years had changed quite a few be­yond recog­ni­tion.
