Active Retirees : Active Retirees June-July 2012
Active RetireesTM | 9 Tech guide Congratulations to Drew Patchell on the article in the Tech guide section of the February/March 2012 issue of Active Retirees (‘Stay on top’). As a result I now save a significant amount of time by creating shortcuts to access my files of frequent use. I am eagerly awaiting the next article. Elva Verrall Thanks for the feedback Elva – turn to page 46 for Drew’s advice on how to use social media. inspiring work I joined Rotary in 1982, was appointed Community Service Director in that year and started my first Probus Club that October. That club is still very active, with 80 members 30 years later. One member, who had a very active and rewarding time in the club with many close friends, passed away recently. His funeral was a private service, except for an invitation to his Probus friends. We formed a Guard of Honour of 40 Probians and it was so emotional. This is one person’s experience with Probus. Is there a better community activity that Rotary could be part of? In my current role as Rotary District Probus Chairman, I am inspired to be much more active starting new Probus clubs. Winston Marsh Help! Browsing through my copy of Active Retirees, which I received at our meeting this morning, I came across a photo of a gentleman I used to work with in Broken Hill at the Commonwealth Bank. His wife also worked there and that is where they met. I haven’t heard from them since they moved to Adelaide and would love to be in touch. Aileen Davis We were able to put Aileen in touch with her old friends, Neville and Marlene Miller, to great joy all round. “We have just found 48 years of history as a result of Probus membership and the circulation of an article in Active Retirees,” says Neville. “Probus is a great organisation to be a member of.” Volunteering I have been a volunteer driver with Meals on Wheels for 11 years (‘Lend a hand’, February/ March 2012). It has been the most rewarding thing I have done and I hope to continue being a volunteer for many years to come. My husband John was once told by his Uncle Jim that there are givers and takers in this world. That saying is so true! Even after Uncle Jim's death, he was still a giver, as he donated his eyes to help save the sight of others. A giving person is what I would like to be best remembered as. Denise Tarrant Thinkstock
