There could not have been a better time than Christmas!

The club’s business matters were swiftly handled at a general meeting and then it was time for morning tea or coffee with catch-up chats – and cake for all to enjoy.

Julia Redlich told News Of The Area, “This was followed by a PowerPoint presentation of our activities compiled by photographer Lynn Moffitt, aided by newsletter editor Trish McClung.

“Despite all the regulations, many of us had stayed in touch whenever possible with beachside barbecues, wining and dining courtesy of Zoom, walking for pleasure and wine appreciation.

“All suitably distanced of course and this gave us happy memories of the fun and friendship that is the keynote of Probus,” she said.

Members in attendance then enjoyed some Christmas songs, a few carols of course, as well as gems such as an Aussie Jingle Bells and then they were ready for a feast organised by wine and dine officers Vicki and John Archer.

Beautifully decorated tables awaited us, and a menu with a great selection of mains and dessert provided by the helpful and happy staff at the Fingal Bay Sports Club Bistro.

The Probus Club of Fingal Bay meets on the second Monday of every month at 9.30am at the Fingal Bay Sports and Recreation Club, 100 Rocky Point Road, Fingal Bay.

New members and visitors are welcome to join us for a range of activities and guest speakers to enlighten and entertain. Phone 4984 9147.
