The Probus Club of Bacchus Marsh birthday celebrations took place on 27th August, their meeting was followed by a two course catered lunch and was attended by almost 100 members and guests.

During the meeting members took part in a trivia quiz with questions relating to 1988 and a photo guessing competition of members photos from 30 years ago. The Club still has two founding members - Jim Oakley & Joe Broad - who were invited to cut the cake (pictured above).
