At Probus, we aim to have general monthly meetings with the minimum of fuss, have interesting guest speakers presenting talks on a wide variety of subjects, and plan our activities for the coming months for the benefit and enjoyment of members.

We engage in various outings and activities and endeavour to regularly have local events, interspersed with tours and lunches further afield.

Because Probus has ten clubs in the Wide Bay area, we also have the opportunity from time to time to attend lunches, concerts and events throughout the area, giving our members the chance to meet and make friends with fellow Probians.

We recently took a day tour with Roundabout Tours to Montville and Maleny. It was a great day with games and quizzes on the bus, accompanied by a lively commentary by our driver, together with some interesting anecdotes…. although some members felt he was pulling our leg on occasions!

We all enjoyed browsing the many and varied shops and galleries at Montville, followed by lunch at Mary Cairncross Park at Maleny where we could walk through the surrounding rainforest area, the habitat of many local creatures including the Richmond Birdwing Butterfly. We all agreed to plan another trip after Christmas.

If you would like to know more about Probus, you would be most welcome to attend our monthly meeting at the Sandcastle Motel, Tin Can Bay, on the second Monday of each month. If so, please contact Jo on 0428 762 572 or Kaye on 0421 648 129.
