Brian O’Meara thanking Kim O’Toole.

Journey to Antarctica

Thirty-four members enjoyed our May meeting — it is always good to get together.

President Ev opened the meeting and the reports followed.

Joan Dillon spoke about the lunch outing to the RSL in Shepparton — lovely music and a full venue.

The next lunch is at the Kyabram Club on June 7 then on to the Masquerade Ball exhibit at the Town Hall.

Jean Golding organises the afternoon delights at Riverlinks.

The last show was Frankly Sinatra and the next show is Glenn Starr Hit Parade: Hits of the Unforgettable ’50s and ’60s.

We were treated to share Kim O’Toole’s trip to Antarctica early this year.

He left Argentina to Ushuaia where they went on an expedition around the Islands in the Artic.

The environment was pristine. A treaty has been set up until 2048 protecting all of the islands from tourism without permission.

Kim showed a video of his trip and it was amazing — what a wonderful planet.

We had our usual chat and cuppa with a few jokes before closing the meeting.

This one raised a chuckle — life is short, smile while you still have your teeth.

Good to see Merle King well again and wishing David Wilson a speedy recovery.
