THE Probus Club of Port Stephens celebrated Australia Day 2017 with their annual Family Picnic at Sunset Beach.
The very welcome and much-needed rain scared off a few members but it cleared up just in time for a very pleasant 4pm start.
The Australia day afternoon saw a lot of fun, frivolity and fellowship with colourful outfits of varying degrees.
“David Wilson was a standout in his yellow suit and green shirt, which was very Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi with a little bit of competition from Geoff and Jim,” Ann Gibson, Publicity Officer, told Bay News Of The Area.
The ladies looked smartly traditional in their patriotic red, white and blue.
Members sang a wonderful rendition of the National Anthem with the help of the Gibson grandchildren.
“There was a fine rendition of ‘I Still Call Australia Home’ by the usual girly suspects and as all good fun, you just had to be there to appreciate the sentiment and the talent,” Ms Gibson said.
The next meeting is on the second Thursday of the month, 9.30am at Nelson Bay Bowling Club and everybody is welcome.
