It doesn’t take much to get the members of this Probus Club to try something new. Julia Redlich of the Probus Club of Fingal Bay told News Of The Area, “When a new restaurant opens locally assessment of worth is definitely needed. Advertise with News of The Area today. It’s worth it for your business. Message us. Phone us – (02) 4981 8882. Email us – [email protected] “No surprise then when members of the Fingal Bay Probus Club set out for lunch at The Nelson Way, at The Landmark in Dowling Street.” Julia and the other members at the lunch found a welcoming atmosphere which inspired the usual fun and friendship as choices were laid before them. “Several approached the special $15 lunchtime menu selection, while others opted to indulge in offerings from the main menu, wines and other drinks were readily available and the service was friendly and helpful. “Needless, to say ‘We’ll be back!’” Julia said. A few days later one of the club’s regular wine appreciation times was held on the patio of Lynn Moffitt’s home. “Organiser Roy Jeffery produced a variety of wines for tasting and assessment, with a contribution from Robert Mitchell. “Nibbles of course helped with decision making, followed by delicious cake and tea and coffee farewell offerings.” If you would like to get involved with a group of retirees and get more socially active you can visit the Fingal Bay Probus Club which meets at 9.30am on the second Monday of each month at the Fingal Bay Sports and Recreation Club, 100 Rocky Point Road, Fingal Bay. “New members and visitors are welcome to learn about the club and its activities that include wine and dine events, walking for pleasure, barbecues, coffee mornings and wine appreciation time,” said Julia.
