Candlelight Dinner Cancelled
Sadly, we have to cancel this event for the second time. Refunds will be issued by the Treasurer in the near future (rather than a credit for future events). We are very frustrated!
Roger Wilson's Predictions for the Aussies in Tokyo
Beaumaris Probus awarded $2000 grant from Bayside Council
The funds have been used for the purchase of a video editing computer which will enable Paul Crompton to continue editing our speaker videos. Paul has been tirelessly recording and editing our speaker videos for 12 years. An amazing achievement. Videos from 2016 can be viewed on this website. Thank you Paul and thank you Bayside Council.
My first recording was February 2009, Water from Tasmania. We have had a range of subjects; Climate Change, Recyclables, Health and more. Notable speakers were the Consul-General of the USA Michael Thurston with his insight into Iraq. The Consul-General of India about population and transport Gourmet Tour of France Gabriel Gate, Lindsay Fox, Mark Knight and many more. By the way,
as long ago as 2011 our speaker’s topic was “Why your Next Car Should be an Electric Vehicle. Energy and the Shape of Things to Come”!
I trust you will continue to enjoy our recordings and will take this opportunity to keep in touch with what is going on….Spare a thought for our President who has to find the speakers!
Best wishes Paul Crompton.
