Group guide: Wide Bay



Bargara and District Mixed

OUR club hosted the Probus Wide Bay Region Presidents and Past Presidents luncheon at Club Bargara on 30 October.

Ten clubs represented by 78 Probus members from Cooloola Coast, Gympie, Maryborough, Hervey Bay, Bundaberg and Bargara heard guest speaker, Councillor Judy Peters, provide many interesting facts about the Bundaberg Region and her personal involvement with our regional council over many years.

Our local Councillor, Greg Barnes, and local State Member, Stephen Bennett, also offered a welcome to our many visitors.

The 'Miss Spent Ukes' took as down memory lane with songs from the mid 90's to the early 2000's.

Their arrangements were just the thing to brighten our day.

New friends made and old friendships renewed was the order of the day while we enjoyed a delicious meal provided by Club Bargara. We received an invite from Cooloola Coast Club who will host the event in 2020.

Hervey Bay

THE Hervey Bay View Club (Voice, Interest, and Education of Woman) meetings and luncheon are always the second Monday of each month at the Club House, Tooth Street, Pialba from 10.30am and usually includes a Guest Speaker. Monthly socials are on the forth Monday at various venues from 9.30am.

Our September Fire Brigade guest speakers and display had to be cancelled due to the atrocious weather conditions which sadly are continuing.

The club enjoyed the annual sausage sizzle bbq in a lovely area at Dayman Park Urangan and the weather was gorgeous.

It was many hands on deck when it came to the cooking and the results were very yummy.

VIEW Clubs Australia National Convention 2019 was held in Queensland this year on the Sunshine Coast with 620 women attending and listening to some very distinguished dignitaries delivering inspiring stories of life's journey high lightening many women's accomplishments and support of the Smith Family.

Both View Clubs from Hervey Bay were represented.

Our monthly trading table continues to raise much needed funds for the Smith Family and the education of disadvantaged children. New or interested ladies are always welcome to join our very friendly club. Phone Bev on 07 4128 2692.
