The community is invited to listen to local vet Jill Clapperton speak about the trials and triumphs of her career at the Tatura Hospital Ladies Auxiliary annual general meeting this week.
Ms Clapperton, a vet at Tatura Vet Clinic, will speak about her experiences as a new veterinary graduate.
Auxiliary secretary Dorothy Smith said Ms Clapperton graduated from university in 1990 when she also moved to the Goulburn Valley.
‘‘She soon learnt that veterinary science was not only about the characteristics of the animals she treated but also about the humans she met,’’ Ms Smith said.
‘‘Everyone is welcome to come along to the meeting to hear Jill’s story.’’
Ms Smith said the meeting would also be a chance to hear from the auxiliary regarding how it spent funds raised throughout the year.
‘‘There will (also) be a trading table, raffle and afternoon tea,’’ she said.
Hospital nurse manager Jayne French will also be on-hand to give guests a summary of purchases and upgrades at the hospital and its surrounds throughout the past year.
■The Tatura Hospital Ladies Auxiliary annual general meeting will be held this Friday, July 27, at St Mary’s Hall, Hogan St, Tatura, from 2pm.
