* Next DIY Club Meeting on 29 May 2020

Time for another DIY General Meeting and it will now be held on Friday, 29May.

***Please note the change of date due to finalising our AGM***

 As we are still not able to meet physically in the Rex Money room for our club general meeting at this time, it is up to you to meet up informally with your Probus friends as you see fit using electronic means or following the NSW guidelines currently in place which can be found at: Do morning tea, do lunch, do afternoon tea or do all three!

 During our April DIY General Meeting 40 participants posted on the club Facebook site or contacted me via email and it was pleasing to see the efforts so many Rouse Hill Probians made to have some fellowship, friendship and fun in a different way. Colleen and Ron and Doris and Richard made delicious morning teas and had their name badges on view so that was very impressive. You four have set the bar very high! Others shared their photos on the club Facebook page so we could have a  feeling of togetherness. With those wonderful examples, it is time for us all to enjoy more fellowship, friendship and fun at our second do it yourself general meeting.

As before, please post on the club Facebook site or send me an email so you can be included in the lucky door prize draw. I will do that a bit later this time with a close of the list at 3PM to give more time for responses. Good luck and have a great Probus day!

 Cheers, Barbara


*Report on April DIY Club Meeting

Hello to all members of the Probus Club of Rouse Hill.

I just wanted to thank every one of you who participated in our first DIY general meeting last Friday. There were so many wonderful photos of you enjoying your special morning teas and lunches that it felt like we were together while apart and there were also numerous positive comments sent.
Those who were able to Zoom or phone chat had extra fun and I would suggest that you call those grandkids and get them to help you connect if you haven't done so already.
Once I counted all contacts received, there were 40 people who posted or let me know they were part of our meeting and I think that is fantastic! Our lucky door prize was won by the lovely Helen R and I will be arranging a safe visit to deliver that to her sometime this week.
Please remember that our next DIY general meeting will be on Friday 22 May so I hope it is in your diary. There are also lots of virtual activities happening throughout the month so join in in whatever way you can.
Kind regards, Barbara

*Easter Hat Parade 2020 - Results

Twelve entries, around twelve percent of the club, all of a very high standard posed considerable debate and analysis among the judges who have resolved to stay married.

The judges resolved, without approval of the organizing committee, to make a highly commended award. This award was based on the amazing degree of coordination shown in the entries submitted by one couple. The judges were impressed by their apparent ability to work together. And so the highly commended award goes to a couple, Yolanda & Barry.

Runner-up in the Ladies category is awarded to June B with her highly decorated fun hat.

Runner-up in the Gentlemen category is awarded to Peter G with his highly original creation showing that Australian men still have a long way to go.

First Prize in the Gentlemen category is awarded to John Z. John’s creation shows that men needn’t be afraid to step out of the ordinary in their use of colour. The judges thought John’s approach hinted at the glory days of men’s fashion when colour set gentlemen apart.

First Prize in the Ladies category is awarded to Barbara F (and this is the only serious comment) whose total presentation highlighted light and life, the joy of Easter.

We appreciate the opportunity to judge this first Easter Hat Parade.

Judy & Graham
