Pat Smith Has Passed Away

Pat Smith

John Evans, our President, announced the following sad news today:

"It is with much sadness that I bring news of the death of Pat Smith, the wife of our Speaker Secretary Mike.

Pat was always an enthusiastic supporter of our Probus Activities and will be sadly missed by her many friends in the club. She was a skilled writer of material for our website and many of the reports of Probus social activities were penned by her, often supported by photos taken by Mike.

Mike has a very distinguished record with Probus. He was President in 2014/15 and is on his second stint in the demanding role of Speaker Secretary. He took over from Alvar as Editor of our website last year but for very understandable reasons has asked Alvar to take the reins again for the foreseeable future. I know well from personal experience of committee meetings that whenever a volunteer is needed to undertake a particular task Mike is often the first to raise his hand. The club owes him a great debt of gratitude for his outstanding service.

It is such a shame that we are unable to meet at present to offer Mike our support at this difficult time. Let us look forward to a better time when we shall be able to meet as a club again when I am sure we will be pleased to offer Mike, and others of our membership who have also suffered loss through this extended lockdown, our friendship and support.

John Evans
