Pretty River Probus Ladies had a great feast following four ends of Lawn Bowling…… in 90+ temperature. Hardy group!
We had a full house for our Sunday Bowl and our first Bar B Q of the year that followed.
For many years, Bruce and Mildred Lowe were the happy faces members would meet upon entering the Club’s “Lounge and Kitchen”. Their customer care was cheerful, meticulous, consistent and devoted. Today, as they retire, from their meritorious contribution and steadfast volunteerism, we honour them with their own “name plaque”, prominently displayed in the Club House. HATS OFF to Bruce and Mildred.
President Norma chats with currently inactive member Donna Locke who paid a surprise visit on July 31st. Donna was Club Treasurer for 11 years. As many members know, Donna also excelled on the tournament circuit.
These were 14 friends and two babies who felt their visit to Collingwood would not be complete without a game of Lawn Bowling. Being that the Olympics were on, they decided to compete for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals. President Norma and Mentor Jenny were kept pretty busy.
At the start of the year, President Norma had set a mission of building the club up to 40 members. On July 18, she announced the Club had not only met the goal, but surpassed it claiming “Mission Membership Accomplished”.
Terry Dowdall MP Simcoe-Grey learning the basics of Lawn Bowling from President Norma Gee, Norma complimented Terry on his athletic prowess and invited him back for another lesson when the COVID pandemic would permit him to compete with the Club’s best players. He accepted!
