3 (7th) 8th Birthday celebrations 3rd May 2021

The club could not celebrate its 37th Birthday in 2020, due to Covid restrictions, so this year the club celebrated both its 37th and 38th birthdays.

The Birthday cake, baked especially by Lelene Schwerdt, master cake baker of many Probus Birthday Cakes, was cut by City of Unley Mayor Michael Hewitson AO, who wore the mayoral chains complete with the 150 year sesquicentenary motto inscribed in Latin. Members then sang 'Happy Birthday' to the club, with gusto.

The deliciously moist light fruit cake was the hightlight of the special morning tea of platters, comprising of vegetarian, meat, cheese and Mediterranean platters.

Following that we were entertained by a Brass interlude from 7 members of the Mitcham City Brass, which does comprise 41 members. Conductor Steve Packer gave us a brief history of the band and spoke of the vast array of music that he has. 

The morning was well received by members and we look forward to an interesting year.
