The usual delicious two course meal will be served at a cost of $15.
Takeaway meals are also available.

At the April meeting following on from the normal reports and the social gathering over AM Tea the probus club were entertained by two young lady speakers from the Department of the Environment speaking on usage and availability of ‘firewood from public lands’.
At present no firewood is available between Cobram and Yarrawonga including the Barmah Forest region.
In any event a permit is required from the appropriate authority which could be the local council, VicRoads or the Parks dept.
In response to their enquiry out of the members present, 40 odd, only 4 parties use wood solely for heating and/or cooking etc.
A sign of the times that we are using alternatives to the old traditional wood fires.
This type of topic is normal at the regular monthly meetings held on the second Wednesday each month at the Yarrawonga/ Mulwala Golf Club Resort and any retired or semi-retired male is welcome to attend and join us in Probus activities. For further information contact John Fairbairn on 03 5744 2087 or 0403744367. Successful dances at Wilby
A dedicated and happy group of dances flocked to Wilby Hall on Sunday, April 22 for the regular bi-monthly Afternoon Tea Dance.
An irresistible mix of old time and nu-vogue dances was put together by J and M Hughes using many favourite and catchy tunes.
There were Quick Steps, Cha Chas, Fox Trots and Waltzes to keep the crowd up and swinging on a lovely autumn afternoon between 1pm and 5pm. Everyone contributed to the wonderful afternoon tea which was much appreciated by all and the raffle and lucky door prizes added a lot of fun to the occasion.
The next dance is to be held on Sunday afternoon, June 24. For more information call Geoff on 0428500612 or Helen 0407521278.
