Tollgates Combined Probus Club Welcomes Spring

At its monthly meeting on Monday 4 September members of Tollgates Combined Probus Club welcomed in spring by hosting a (bee) black and gold themed meeting including morning tea featuring treats using honey as an ingredient. Everyone eagerly entered into the spirit of the morning, participating in various quizzes and information sharing segments.

Vice President Frankie Gosbell, Shayne Starkey, President Garry Gray

The guest speaker was Shayne Starkey, the Bio Security and Apiary Officer of the Eurobodalla Amateur Beekeepers Club, who provided a most interesting and informative presentation about bees. Not only did Shayne provide information about the bee, but she also talked about beekeeping and the habits of bees. Members were amazed at the capability and intelligence of the humble bee. We need bees – without bees humanity is in danger!! They play a most important part in our food production.

President Garry Gray said that the morning was a great success with a good balance of information and fun which aligns itself to the Probus slogan of FUN, FRIENDSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP IN RETIREMENT.

Interested visitors are welcome to attend meetings which are held at Batemans Bay Surf Club, George Bass Drive, MALUA BAY on the first Monday of each month at 9.45am.
