Moruya Probus “checked out”
FOUR visitors were welcomed at the June meeting of Moruya Probus at Moruya Golf Club on Tuesday morning. “They’re checking us out,” members were told.
Moruya Probus is embarking on a membership drive, part of which is inviting prospective members to the meetings held on the fourth Monday of every month, at the Golf Club, starting at ten-o’clock.
There were 39 members present at Tuesday’s meeting. They heard a five minute (or so) talk by member Bruce Imrie. He took as his subject scare campaigns, with particular reference to a once- assured imminent running-out of oil, mad car disease as it was supposed to effect humans, the millennia bug… “and global warming, that has become climate change”.
The meeting then heard two or three jokes before turning to business. Bruce Imrie gave a round-up of impending functions, including a Christmas in July luncheon, planned for Tomakin Club on July 11. More names were needed, he said. He spoke of a potential visit to the Bay Players’ next production and mentioned members were invited to a Trivia Night to be conducted by the Friends of the Botanic Gardens at the Golf Club on August 19.
Barbara Dorman spoke about a day trip being planned to Twofold Bay in September that would include a launch tour of the bay.
Geoff Dorman spoke of a potential coach trip to Yarrawonga in November including visits to Rutherglen, Swanpool, Tocumwal, Corowa and Dookie.
After tea/coffee break members listened to Stuart Whitelaw, an architect (among other things) living at Bingie Bingie, also known as the founder of Moruya’s River Restaurant and founder of SAGE. He spoke about Moruya’s Farmers’ Market that is held on the riverside on Tuesday afternoons.
