Henty-Culcairn Probus Club May report, May 16, 2017

THE May meeting of the Henty-Culcairn Probus Club was held at the Culcairn Bowling and Recreation Club.

In the absence of the president and secretary the meeting was conducted by Kevin Knobel and Diane Allitt.

The day's five minute speaker was Ron Wellington who filled us in on his life in rural Victoria before he purchased a property at Pleasant Hills. His family had utilised produce from their farm for their day to day living. One parcel of land had been in the Wellington  family for a number of generations.

Graeme Johnson, of Acacia Funerals in Albury, was the day's guest speaker.

He advised the gathering to ensure they fully understood the costs as well as the benefits when looking to take out a funeral insurance policy. He explained ways in which bereaved families could keep funeral costs to a minimum.

The next meeting of the Henty Culcairn Probus Club will be held at the Henty Community Centre on Wednesday, June 14 at 10am.
