Ten years of Probus Stan­thorpe

Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE | SERVICES SCENE -

THE Probus guest speaker for Novem­ber was Amanda Har­vey from Queens­land Rail.

Amanda trav­elled all the way from Bris­bane to give us an in­for­ma­tive and in­ter­est­ing talk on all the ma­jor Queens­land Rail hol­i­day pack­ages.

This in­cluded the tilt train, which runs from Bris­bane to Rock­hamp­ton, the Spirit of Queens­land which goes from Bris­bane to Cairns in 25 hours, the Gold Sa­van­nah and sev­eral out­back rail ex­pe­ri­ences.

Club mem­bers were all sur­prised at the qual­ity and com­fort pro­vided in rail travel and the cost is very rea­son­able.

Probus mem­bers will cer­tainly want to travel by train to see more of Queens­land.

Rum out­ing

THIS month 45 mem­bers trav­elled by bus to the Been­leigh rum dis­tillery.

On the way we stopped at the cho­co­late fac­tory and the fa­mous Yalata pie shop for lunch.

The club then vis­ited the rum dis­tillery and pur­chased their prod­ucts which were all good.

10 years

PROBUS cel­e­brated its 10th birthday in Stan­thorpe on Tues­day.

Mal Pid­geon gave a talk on the his­tory of Probus in Stan­thorpe which had club mem­bers lis­ten­ing in­tently.

The club en­joyed a nice big cake at the event at the RSL for what was a good morn­ing with good guest speak­ers.

The in­au­gu­ral mem­bers were pre­sented with a 10 year award cer­tifi­cate in recog­ni­tion of their ded­i­ca­tion and loyal ser­vice and cap­tur­ing and de­vel­op­ing the true spirit of Probus fun fel­low­ship and friend­ship.
