Probus - Don and Judy select goods from the Lindols Farm Shop

Don and Judy select goods from the Lindols Farm Shop

It has been a busy month for our Probus Club. Fourteen members went to Lindols Macadamia Farm cafe at Goomboorian for morning tea – and came home happy and with goodies from the farm and other local businesses, bought from the display in their shop.

The service was quick and pleasant. We plan to return again and avail ourselves of the opportunity of a farm tour.

Lunch at the Silky Oaks Tea Gardens on a wet, cold day was held inside with a fire blazing making for a cosy atmosphere. We had been invited by the members of the Gympie-Widgee Probus Club to join them and it was a great chance to renew friendships and begin new ones.

John Macfarlane, Flotilla Commander of QF17 – Tin Can Bay Coast Guard, was the Guest Speaker at our July meeting. John spoke of how the volunteers in the Coast Guard undertake search and rescue, and provide marine radio coverage, general boating information, and education and training for the public – all peppered with his personal tales of service.

Meetings are held on each second Monday of the month at 2pm at the Sandcastle Motel in Tin Can Bay, and include a break for afternoon tea and a chat. For more details please contact our President Daryl on 0416 739 324 or Secretary Katrina at
