MORUYA Combined Progress Club wound up another year at its annual meeting held at Moruya Golf Club on Tuesday morning.
Retiring after his third term as president Max Hogno said the Club had functioned well through the year, but there had been some calamities with the loss of extremely dedicated members.
He went on: “I thank those of the committee-Netta, Di, Bruce, Vince, Carolyn, Carol, Geoff, Eric, Ingrid and David who have stood up and been counted and who have contributed so strongly.
“I do single out David Petts who, over a long period of time has supplied the Club with a magnificent array of guest speakers. And our secretary, Diane Montgomerie, holding down the most onerous of positions, that of ‘CEO’.”
During the annual meeting Diane was re-elected to that position. Bruce Imrie signed on for another term as treasurer, Carolyn Winters as membership secretary, Eric Wiseman as publicity officer, Geoff Bragg as tours officer and Carol Imrie as activities officer.
It was decided to leave other positions vacant until the April meeting when the adjurned AGM will be held.
It was agreed to keep the annual membership fee at $25 and the joining fee $5.
Moruya Probus has 60 members, 37 of whom were at Tuesday’s meeting.
At the monthly meeting following the annual meeting members heard Carolyn Winters give a version if Genesis and Max Hogno speak if his German ancestors, the first of them arriving in Australia in the middle of the 19th-century.
They then prepared for the much anticipated Changeover luncheon.
Moruya Probus meets at Moruya Golf Club at ten-o’clock on the fourth Tuesday of each month.
There are many advantages with being a member of Probus. Apart from meeting new friends, and sometimes some old ones, there are opportunities of being involved in outings. There are discounts for some members with restaurants and hotels and more reasonable travel insurance rates that seniors may otherwise be offered. Anyone considering membership should call president Max Hogno on 4474 2324.
