After their AGM meeting in May, Retford Men’s Probus Club are taking a well-deserved break for the summer recess following a year of a varied and sometime hectic programme organised by the president, secretary and supporting committee. The good news is, they will be back in early September with a fresh box of tea bags and coffee and some new biscuits to tempt members’ palates.
A new programme has been devised with something to suit most tastes, and the group would like to take this opportunity to invite new members or interested parties to join them. The club meetings are a rendezvous for morning coffee and conversation. This is normally followed by a talk from an invited speaker on a topic of interest to members. There are no strangers, only perhaps friends you’ve yet to meet. Many long lasting friendships have been formed through the club over the years! Contact Retford Men’s Probus Club, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the secretary on 07542 852037. You won’t regret it!
On a sad note, it is with deep regret that the club announce the passing of one of their longstanding and well-respected members, Dennis Beevers on Monday 17th June. Dennis had held the post of club secretary over the past few years and had a great sense of humour and was a master of one liner quips. He will be sadly missed by all his colleagues in Probus.
