Recently the Toorbul & Donnybrook Pensioners’ Club held its AGM at Toorbul. The current committee was congratulated, and the new committee received their badges from our local member Simone Wilson. Simone is always a welcome visitor at the TDPC and she always likes coming to our small community.

Our President is Ruth Eaton, Secretary – Sandy Fortescue, Treasurer – Pauline Threadingham. Other members of the Committee are Gavin Topping, Jan Stephensen, Jo Burke, Judy Doyle, Julie Brecht, Judy Glanville, and Sylvia Jackson. We are looking forward to a great year ahead. Our first major activity is a Seniors Art Expo Day on 17 August. There will be many activities on show – painting, quilting, music, dance and demonstrations of other arts, as well as old cars, and antique artifacts.

A luscious lunch will be served to those who wish to partake, and our members are noted as great cooks. Later in the year, we will celebrate our Spring Fair – 14 September, Melbourne Cup Day 5 November, and on 14 December the celebration of 30 years of our Club House. Regular weekly activities include Tai Chi 8 – 9 am Mondays & Fridays; Craft 9 – 11 am Mondays; Indoor Bowls 1-3 pm Mondays, and Line Dancing – 2nd and 4th Tuesdays 8 – 9 am.

All are welcome. We are looking always for new members and welcome both new and older residents of Toorbul and Donnybrook. Contact Ruth (0754292310) or Sandy (0427410112) if you are interested.

A highly successful sales and leadership career working in a number of different and very competitive industries. Engaging with decision makers at all levels in business and government. Three decades employed by corporations, SME businesses in senior roles and almost twelve years operating as a freelance contractor has equipped me well for all aspects of business. Whether leading and mentoring sales teams, or in a direct sales role I enjoy the challenge to meet and exceed expectations. Making a real and tangible difference in either a team environment or as an individual is an important personal goal I have consistently achieved throughout my career. In all of my business and personal dealings over the years there is one issue that stands out above all others - communication. Excellent communication skills creates trust, helps with mutually beneficial outcomes and above all cements long lasting positive relationships. I strive everyday to communicate effectively with the people I encounter.
