20 years marked

The Tatura Guardian - - News - By Madeleine Cac­cian­iga

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.
