20 years marked
Founded on November 12, 1998, Tatura Probus celebrated its 20th birthday last week with eight foundation members lined up for cake.
In the late ’90s Tatura Rotary was approached by members of the community, who had family members in Probus or had been in Probus elsewhere before settling in Tatura to form a group.
‘‘Trevor George, president of Rotary saw fit to find out what interest there was, so called for an interest meeting on the 14th of October at the community centre,’’ Probus president Ev Leahy said.
She said Probus was based on friendship, interesting guest speakers, all sorts of topics, trips, outings and lunches.
The foundation meeting saw 58 members present and management committee and office bearers elected.
Twenty years on, Probus celebrated at Victory Hall, inducting three new members and inviting founder president Joan Baumber to cut the cake.
All members in attendance on the day enjoyed the sounds of the Shepparton Splinters Group and shared a catered morning tea.
All smiles: Edwina Marsden, Bill Woods and Edie Bradbury share the birthday spirit.
