President’s Remarks and AGM June 2019

Gentlemen, this is my last President’s report and I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Club Officials and Council members for the work they have done in keeping Kidsgrove Probus Club an efficient and thriving concern.

I thought the President’s evening was successful with a nice meal and a lovely entertainer. As far as I could tell, most enjoyed the evening.

Our incoming President is John Dunn and I wish him a happy and enjoyable year

Norman Hankey, President.
