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.

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.
