FROM THE PRESIDENTS DESK 

Today as the retiring President  of this Club, I  submit  my Annual  Report for the year 2019-2020.           This Club was formed in 1985 and after 35 years of being formed, the Club is progressing and continues to be an asset to the community.

            I am not going to talk about the various things we did during the year, these are documented in the Tilliprobe which is distributed to Members.However I would like to express my thanks to the Committee and to interest Group Leaders who were dedicated to their Groups, and by their efforts in their respective roles, ensured that this Club lived up to and practised the ideals of Probus, namely Friendship, Fellowship, and Fun.

Finally to all of our Members a very BIG THANK YOU   for your continued support of our Club and I am confident this will continue into the future.

         To the incoming President and his Committee, I congratulate you on your election to your respective Offices ,and wish you all a happy and  enjoyable term of Office. Eric Rawle

President
