The members of Cooloola Coast Probus Club enjoy regular activities both locally and further afield, and from time to time have the opportunity to join in with Probian and local groups.

Some members attended the CWA High Tea in Tin Can Bay, helping to raise money for drought-stricken farmers. Everyone enjoyed the wonderful array of goodies baked by the fantastic CWA ladies and many attendees walked off with the great range of raffle prizes on display – we were even allowed to choose our prize!  Well done, CWA ladies!

Sometimes we have a joint barbeque with the Rainbow Beach Over 60s whose members have similar ideals and interests. A group of our members recently joined them for a barbeque at Norman Point – a great day outdoors with fun and laughter.

We joined with Probians from all over the Wide Bay for the annual Presidents and Past Presidents Lunch hosted by Bargara Probus Club and also attended the Gympie Probus Club’s 36th Birthday lunch.

We welcomed a new member to our club this month, Vivienne Brown, and are looking forward to her company at various upcoming events. Our long-term member and published author, Roma Ravn, was guest speaker at the October meeting – a most entertaining and interesting presentation.

We meet at the Sandcastle Motel on the second Monday of each month at 2pm. For further information please phone Jo on 0428 762 572 or Kaye on 0421 648 129.
