25th BIRTHDAY HIGH TEA AT PROSPECT PETANQUE CLUB

Prospect Petanque Club celebrated their 25th Birthday today with a High Tea held in wonderful weather out in our wonderful surroundings. About 40 members, past and present, attended to see the Mayor of Prospect, David O’Loughlin, cut the cake and President, Allan Sanderson give a summary of the beginnings of the Club and the progress made over the years. A highlight of the Afternoon Tea were the petite biscuits that Wendy Dewey created with the Club logo imprinted on them.

Six lucky attendees won a commemorative bottle of red wine.

The celebrations will continue tomorrow, Sunday 18 April, with a Doubles competition with approximately 30 teams registered to compete.

Men At Work

Special thanks to Trevor Palmer, Marty Verdonk, Michael Frodyma and Brett Williams for taking on the task to ‘tidy up’ the Sound System cabling on the Northern Wall of the Club Rooms.

This effort certainly enhances the presentation of our Clubrooms for Petanque Special Occasions and Hire Functions.

Well done team.
