Hutt River (Clare) Probus has kicked off 2020 with their first meeting held on January 21 at the Barbara J long Room Clare
The meeting included a minute's silence for the loss of Vera Stephenson.
Vera was a Foundation member and also a Life Member of our Club.
To balance that Colin Ramm was presented with his badge and welcomed into our Club. Colin was previously a member at Waikerie.
Richard Elkhoury was our Guest Speaker, Pharmacist in Clare for 20 years - initially thought "Where's that" when offered the opportunity.
He covers a lot of areas of medication, minor ailments, prescriptions, Webster packs and flu injections (2000 shots).
Richard says the Rural shortage of Pharmacist is intense -metropolitan overloaded. Traditional Pharmacist communicates with customers.
Richard also has a Pilot licence which assists him with the pharmacist work he does all over the state.
He enjoys pharmacy and has joined local clubs including Hockey & Apex.
It was very interesting to hear all the wonderful things one of our local business owners offer, I'm sure we all learnt something.
Richard was thanked by Barry Budarick.
