THE latest meeting of the Garioch Probus Club turned out to be rather unusual in some respects for those present. Following the usual welcome by President George Cadenhead, Ally Bonnyman introduced his guest, who was well-known local entertainer Alan Innes of AllansMagic.
For his “turn” on this occasion, with the help and co-operation of Probus members, Alan demonstrated some of his close-up magic tricks, to the great amusement and enjoyment of fellow members. He also gave members some useful tips in memory training, for example learning to say the alphabet backwards with the help of mnemonics. Whether Probus members will benefit from Allan’s tips remains to be seen!
On behalf of members present, Arthur Taylor thanked Alan for his entertaining presentation.
Before the close of the meeting, John Sim gave the members details of two forthcoming events for Club golfers.
