The ambience at Bella Vista was superb with the members showing their usual enthusiasm for such functions.

The old Bella Vista building, which was built for the first general manager of BHP, is the ideal venue, but unfortunately will cease hosting such occasions later this year.

Terry Corcoran, from Medowie Probus, told News Of The Area, “The meal was haute couture and was very much enjoyed by all present.”

“As is customary in the club, the birthday cake was an important ingredient.”

“The cake was cut by our Foundation members, Margaret and Laurie Dicker, which was very special,” he said.

Laurie was president of Raymond Terrace Rotary Club, Medowie’s sponsoring rotary club, when the Probus club was inaugurated in 2003.

The club meets at the Medowie Community Centre at 10am on the third Wednesday of each month and still has vacancies for retired or semi-retired people of both genders who would enjoy their social activities.

The Probus club is a wonderful place to meet new people and listen to guest speakers on a variety of subjects.

The club also arranges other functions through the year with trips to exciting places, fun lunch days with live entertainment and many other celebrations.

The Probus motto is Fun, Friendship and Fellowship and this is very much entrenched in the Medowie Club.
