Retiring member honoured by Warwick Rose City Probus Club
RECENTLY, the Warwick Rose City Probus Club honoured retiring member Florence Slattery with a special morning tea. Florence has been a Probus member for many years but is now unable to attend regular meetings.
She resides in a nursing home and turned 99 on June 22.
Florence first moved to Warwick in 1941 and worked as a teacher at what is now Scotts PGC College.
Club President Don McKechnie presented her with a loyalty badge and honorary membership and commented "She's been so loyal to the club and has come to so many meetings always immaculately dressed."
In reply, Florence commented about all the "wonderful friends" that she had made over the years and that she appreciated them all so much - they always made her feel so welcome.
In more recent times, she has missed coming to the meetings but wished everyone all the best.
