The Annual General Meeting of
the Combined Probus Club of the
Barossa Inc. was held on March
21, at the Tanunda Clubhouse
with 91 members in attendance.
Retiring President, Ray Duance
in his report said, “I have been
privileged to be the President of
this Probus Club for the past 12
months, and I thank you for the
opportunity to serve.
“At the outset I had one
major aim- simply to further the
friendship, fellowship and fun
aspect of our organisation.
“Despite the bureaucracy which
supports the organisation, our
club exists for the enjoyment of
our members and this to me is
“In this regard, I have been
delighted with the way in which
you have joined in the activities
which are suitable for you.
“Formally, the camping and
caravanning group, the dinner
group, the lunch group, the
excursion and outing group
and the knitter-natters are all
testament to this.
“Of course there are numerous
other less formal groups who
renew acquaintances at meetings
on all sorts of different levels and
“Our meetings have been well
attended. I am sure that the work
of Jim Hayes has a lot to do with
this because he has been able to
provide for us a wide range of
entertaining speakers who have
stirred our interest and memories.
“Both of these aspects of our
lives are important.
“We can’t run egg and spoon
races anymore, but we can develop
new interests and skills, and our
guest speakers have given us
the opportunity to stretch our
imaginations and knowledge.
“My task has been made easy by
an excellent management group.
“The management of the club
is broken into small pieces, with
each member accepting a role and
concentrating on it.
“We have worked especially on
two aspects of club development.
“The longer morning tea has
been a success – less of a rush and
more time to converse!
“We have also attempted
to reduce the demand for
“Recording and reporting has
been reduced. The bulletin is used
to pass on information.
“I must thank Margaret Kroehn
for her work in this regard
because the bulletin is colourful
“Stephan Knoll, Member for
Schubert, prints the bulletin. This
has taken an enormous load off
the Bulletin manager.
“I must make special mention of
the work of Diana Cowan. Despite
her retirement from the Secretary’s
position last year, she has carried
on in the role of assistant secretary
for this Probian
Claire van der Pijl
interviewing her husband, Arie on
his early years in the Netherlands
as a child, teenager, WW2, life as
a carpenter and joiner and finally
in 1954 when he immigrated to
Australia where he had many
eventful experiences until one
day he found Claire and the rest
A very colourful, entertaining
and amusing interview was
enjoyed by the members.
