The fishing group and friends decided not to fish until February and organizer David Long held a bring-a-plate “Long’s Lunch” to get the year started. Australia Day was again celebrated at Sunset Beach by the Probus Club, with a late afternoon family picnic when most members dressed up accordingly for this fun activity. Ann Gibson publicity officer for the Port Stephens Probus Club told News Of The Area, “Lots of friendship was evident as is the usual case in this very active Probus Club.” February will bring all the usual activities back into line with lots of other events already being planned for the coming months. “This Club has an ever increasing membership with something for everyone,” she said. They welcome singles and couples who are semi or fully retired to come to a meeting on the second Thursday of the month, at 9.30am at Nelson Bay Bowling Club. If you are a senior interested in engaging more with your local community and enjoying all that Port Stephens has to offer you can attend one of the club’s meetings or start by checking out their website for more information and contact details: www.probusclubofportstephens.org.
