EVERY Community group has a hard working committee that beavers away behind the scenes making things happen.

It’s that time of year when the committee for the Fingal Bay Probus Club has rung in a change of committee and is welcoming new leadership.

Julia Redlich told News Of The Area, “March is the time for Probus Clubs to ring the changes and elect a new president as well as confirming all those members who are happy to take on all organisation of the activities that fill the clubs with friendships, fun and – very often – enlightenment!”

Fingal Bay Probus Club’s recent annual general meeting saw Jenny Wright retire after a two-year presidency.

Jenny congratulated the members on keeping the club flourishing despite COVID regulations.

She then handed the president’s position over to the popular and experienced Rex Sneyd, and other members confirmed their willingness to take on other work.

“From some of the suggestions made there are even more exciting times ahead!” she said.

The Fingal Bay Probus Club 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 evenings, walking for pleasure, barbecues, coffee mornings, wine appreciation time and a variety of guest speakers.

If you would like to participate in a fun and lively social community group the members of Fingal Bay Probus Club would welcome you warmly.

Port Stephens is home to several Probus Clubs which support positive social interaction for retirees.
