Probus prepares for Christmas

Contributed by Norma McCormack

IT’S hard to believe that next month Christmas comes round again. How good to be here to enjoy the festivities.

Since many of us are grandparents, and dare I say great grandparents, our club takes December off to spend time with the young ones. With school holidays as well as a visit from Santa, this is a great family time.

November promises to be full scale entertainment, culminating in the Christmas lunch on the 30th, celebrated at the Landsborough Hotel. It would be great to have a full role up of members.
Probus Day was celebrated in October with a sausage sizzle which was meant to be at the Lookout, however, poor weather forced a change of venue to Brian and Sue’s home where sausages could be sizzled undercover. Those who attended had a great time. Thank you to our hosts.

Another highlight for October was a visit to the Abbey with a guided tour of St Michael’s Church and the Museum.

The guide explained the history of both buildings and contents. There was so much to take in that a return visit would be great. After so much stimulation the visitors were ready for lunch.

Since this is the last communication for 2022, Glasshouse Mountains Probus would like to thank the editor and staff of our local paper for being so helpful throughout the year. We wish them, along with our many friends in the area, a merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2023.
