WHILE membership of Moruya Probus is quite stable, a meeting of the Club’s committee on Tuesday decided it might be time to try some new tricks to attract more retired, but still active, professional and business men and women to the ranks. Membership officers told the meeting that on last count there were 49 members and four life members. President Vince Fisher said he had received enquiries from two local people keen to join.So, while the Club will maintain its present attractions it is going to try out some new ones, including more, and more varied, between-meetings. A book exchange at meetings has also been suggested, and members are to be canvased for more ideas.Tours officer Barbara Dorman reported that the outing to Albion Park, including the aircraft museum, had been a great success with four Banksia Lodge residents joining in. President Vince agreed. Although the day was cold and wet, he said, the bus had been comfortable and members had spent most of the time in the hangers, out of the weather. Barbara said she was now working on a one-day outing to Eden, probably in September, to include a voyage on a whale-watching launch.Activities officer Bruce Imrie outlined plans for a Christmas in July luncheon to be held at Tomakin Social Club on July 11. There was a menu with wide choices for $30, he said, and a recent meal there had proved “the food is excellent”. Non-members will be welcome.He also talked about the prospects of a visit to the Bay Players’ next production, A Murder is Announced”. The next monthly meeting will be held on June 27, at Moruya Golf Club as usual, starting at ten-o’clock. President Vince promised a speaker of more than usual interest.
