30th birthday celebration

Celebrations were in order on August 9 when Bargara District Mixed Probus Club held a luncheon at Club Bargara recognising 30 wonderful years.

Adding to the 65 members and guests, seven new members were inducted into the Club by President John Appleby.

Stephen Bennett MP and Qld Probus Wide Bay Regional Liaison Officer, Pam were guests together with members from Gympie and Bundaberg Probus Clubs.

Pam was presented with honorary membership of the Club in recognition of her service as Regional Liaison Officer over many years.

The remaining Foundation Member, Del spoke of the formation of the Club in 1991. Charter was granted and the first meeting held on 13 August that year. The Club grew quickly from 43 original members to over 100 within several years.

Del then cut the cake and was joined by the Club’s six life members some of whom told stories of their experiences as the Club developed over the years.

Lunch was served and many goods from the prize table were distributed. Entertainment was provided by the Bargara Probus Players whose antics made all the guests laugh.

Coffee and cake were served and the day ended in fun and friendship.
