Probus Club news:
Baker shares his
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.
