President’s Club Trophy Recipients Recognised

President’s Club Trophy Recipients Recognised

In 2020, the Bateau Bay Combined Probus Club President Bev introduced the President’s Award, with a large perpetual Trophy and a mini trophy to be presented to the recipient. The trophies are inscribed with: For Commitment and Dedication – Above and Beyond – to the Bateau Bay Combined Probus Club 2022-23.

The first recipient was Tour Leader Bruce, for his tremendous efforts during Covid to maintain contact with Club Members - organising picnic luncheons and evening BBQs when not in the numerous lockdowns, managing to have 2 away trips: one at the Carrington in Katoomba and a 4 day stay in Canberra, where attendees were honoured to make a wreath presentation at the LAST POST at the Australian War Memorial.

Bruce (currently Acting President) presented the President’s Award to 2 members:

1. Neville Withers - for ongoing service to the club as our Librarian, who has been bringing a variety of books to each meeting for many years and was initially on the hospitality team; and

2. Mike Wood - in Bruce’s absence (due to a medical diagnosis for Hodgkins Lymphoma,) Mike stepped up as the Events Organiser as well as the Publicity officer.
