Blayney PROBUS Club celebrated surviving a rather disrupted 2020 with a Christmas luncheon on 17 December at the Blayney Golf Club.
Despite Covid-19 limiting some activities during the year, including periods of isolation, cancelling meetings for several months and the postponing of our annual trip, 2020 disappeared as quickly as other years.
Despite its difficulties, we are not sad that the year went so quickly - we are glad that it has happened at all and we are still here with our friends to see the end of it.
We look forward to the promise of 2021.
President Lyn Cubitt had the pleasure of inducting Meg Price as a new member as well as conferring the honour of life membership on two Club stalwarts Hilton Davis and Eric Wannan.
As guest speaker, Blayney Men's Shed President Ian Tooke enthused about the history of the Blayney Shed, the establishment of the new Shed and the important social role the Shed performs in our community.
