We at Cooloola Coast Probus Club have our Annual General Meeting on our usual meeting day and hold our Changeover Lunch separately. This was held at the Tin Can Bay Country Club when we were joined by members from Maryborough Combined Probus and Gympie Widgee Probus Clubs.

Pam Carlson, Regional Liaison Officer for the Probus Association of Queensland, was our special guest and she inducted our incoming President, Katrina van den Brenk, who in turn inducted the incoming committee.

As well as enjoying a delicious lunch served by the Country Club restaurant, we were entertained by several members with some skits.

One of these was a take-off of the current advertisement on television where children tell what they love about their Dads. Our ‘children’ had some very inventive and fun ideas on the subject – Arthur Leggo liking to ride on his Dad’s motorbike while his Dad did tricks and Judy Kiddle whose father was getting her plastic teeth like Grandma because she had eaten too many lollies!

The Ukelele Group also entertained us with songs from the 1960s and encouraged us all to sing along.

It was a great day – full of Fun, Friendship and Fellowship, the Probus motto.

Meetings are held on each second Monday of the month at 2pm at the Sandcastle Motel in Tin Can Bay and include a Guest Speaker and a break for afternoon tea and a chat. For more details please contact our President Katrina on 0407 637 691 or Secretary Kaye at
