MAFFRA Probus Ladies gathered recently to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the club.

The club began with 21 foundation members, and now has 70 members who meet monthly and enjoy guest speakers.

The group also has many outings to various attractions locally and around the state.

The theme for the celebratory day was ‘dress as someone famous’.

Many ladies dressed in costume, while others enjoyed the occasion.

Heather Ollier and Gwen Carrolyn had the honour of cutting the anniversary cake in front of more than 50 attendees.

Heather is a foundation and life member of the club and has missed very few meetings. She has held many positions within the club including president, vice president, travel coordinator and club historian.

At 94 years old, Gwen is the oldest member. Gwen joined the club in 1995 and has also been a very regular attendee who participates in the many club activities.
