Member of Tollgates Combined Probus Club of Batemans Bay, Pio Liberale, was guest speaker for the October meeting, where he recalled his emigration to Australia from Italy in 1953.
Pio has had a very interesting life, first working in Tasmania, then in the Snowy Mountains, as well as Cotter Dam to name a few places.
He believes that "Life is like a bank account, the more you put in the more you can withdraw" - hence his great love of living in Australia.
New members Betty Richards and Marilla Lenne were welcomed to Tollgates Combined Probus Club of Batemans Bay at the October meeting.
Probus Club members, who were inspired by a previous talk by Bernie Basevi, were recently given a guided tour of "Muddy Puddles".
