The Ro­tary Club of Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala wish to thank all those in the lo­cal com­mu­nity who gave to the Club’s Hay Day Farm­ers’ Sup­port Appeal.

The kind do­na­tions made by the com­mu­nity and matched by the Club, sent a truck­load of hay to the farm­ing com­mu­nity of Guyra NSW, where the lo­cal Ro­tary Club ar­ranged its dis­tri­bu­tion.

A spe­cial thank you must also go out to: Bryce Ridell and Mul­tic­ube Stock­feed for help find­ing the hay, Gil­bert Dickie and Hay Ac­cess for do­nat­ing time for driv­ing and re­turn fuel, Ryan Dono­van from Lamb­tas­tic for pur­chase of hay and Adam Inch­bold who do­nated the hay to make up a BDou­ble truck full.

The Guyra Ro­tary club were also very grate­ful, send­ing a let­ter of ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Ro­tary Club stat­ing all bales had been dis­trib­uted to very needy farm­ers/gra­ziers which helped the area largely as well as the hope­ful be­gin­ning of a great re­la­tion­ship be­tween the Guyra and Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Ro­tary Clubs.

Men’s Probus seek­ing mem­bers

On the eve of its 29th an­niver­sary on Novem­ber 13, Men’s Probus Club of Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala is seek­ing ad­di­tional mem­bers.

The club ex­tends an in­vi­ta­tion to re­tired or semire­tired men to join and be­come a mem­ber of this club for friend­ship, fel­low­ship and fun.

“Probus pro­vides you with the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence friend­ship through so­cial in­ter­ac­tion and par­tic­i­pat­ing in a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties,” pres­i­dent Ian Al­cock said.

“You can hear guest speak­ers on a wide va­ri­ety of in­ter­est­ing top­ics. At our last meeting, for ex­am­ple, we were for­tu­nate to hear the di­rec­tor of Yar­ra­wonga Man­u­fac­tured Hous­ing and for­mer Carl­ton foot­baller John Tre­size speak. Hear­ing his talk on the big ex­pan­sion of his busi­ness was most in­ter­est­ing.”

Spouses of meet­ings are in­vited to at­tend meet­ings when ap­pro­pri­ate, and also at ac­tiv­i­ties.

Men’s Probus has 42 mem­bers but these days the num­bers at­tend­ing meet­ings is down to about 30. Back in 2000, the num­ber was 95.

“Sadly, you nat­u­rally lose some mem­bers as the years go by,” vice-pres­i­dent Peter Prous­salis said. “We’d love to see some new mem­bers.”

Probus is world-wide in at least 22 coun­tries and has 175,000 mem­bers in Aus­tralia/South Pa­cific.

Be part of Men’s Probus and in 2019 you can join in the mile­stone 30th an­niver­sary of Men’s Probus in Yar­ra­wonga/Mul­wala.

The club meets monthly at Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Golf Club Re­sort on the sec­ond Wed­nes­day, from 10.00am to 12 noon. Af­ter a join­ing fee of $20, it’s just $5 a meeting for a cuppa and to hear a spe­cial guest speaker.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Ian Al­cock 0409 217 493 or Peter Prous­salis 0414 935 010.

Bruce Neal, Ian Al­cock and Peter Prous­salis would wel­come more Men’s Probus Club mem­bers.

The hay do­nated by the Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Ro­tary Club was dis­trib­uted to over 30 farm­ers in the Guyra district.
