President Mike Visocchi welcomed Kirriemuir Probus members and partners to the Park Tavern, Roundyhill, to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the founding of the club.

Mike gave an account of the formation of the club in 1989, when Kirriemuir Rotary Club sponsored the establishment of a Probus Club in the town, an organisation for retired professional and business people.

After an excellent meal enjoyed by the company of over 60 with music from Davie Stewart, the cake was cut by founder member and recent speaker at the club Bob Spalding, a very sprightly nonagenarian.

Past-President and speaker of note Jim Smith then entertained the company with an expert and amusing speech before Mike thanked all members and guests for their presence and their fellowship, reminding all to note the date for the 50th Anniversary of Kirriemuir Probus in 2039.
