Country Kitchens Comes To Probus

Our guest speaker, Gabriella from QCWA

At our monthly meetings we endeavour to have a guest speaker to keep us up-to-date and informed and help us in our own daily lives.

At our April meeting we were indeed fortunate to have Gabriella Field from the QCWA Country Kitchens as our guest. The Department of Health and Wellbeing has appointed this organisation to assist in helping Queenslanders to improve their health through diet and healthy habits. Gabriella gave a very informative and entertaining talk about healthy eating, with diet guidelines and lots of helpful suggestions. She even brought some of her pineapple and carrot slice for everyone to taste. Yummy!

At our May meeting we were remembering our ANZACs, with member Arthur Leggo presenting an article written by Tin Can Bay local, Tom Kelly – a very emotive story about the wives, mothers and girlfriends who had to deal with the death of loved ones or care for physically or mentally disabled veterans.

Another of our members, Marie Parker, delivered her own poem, ‘One Day of the Year’, which was inspired by her former husband, a Vietnam veteran. She also told us all about the organisation Legacy, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.

Probus 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
