The last meeting of the club for the year is in the form of a Christmas party which will be enjoyed by all. 

The November meeting was opened with a one minute silence for Joyce Simpson.

The minutes of the last meeting were read followed by a report on our trip to Broken Hill.

The trip began from Loaders in Grenfell  where we travelled by coach to Parkes where attendees enjoyed a delicious lunch.

Members then took a train trip which was very enjoyable.

All those in attendance agreed it was well worth the trip so we could look at the countryside, and compare it with home.

The November monthly meeting was well attended and those who were away missed a very good speaker. 

The guest speaker for November was Ian Hindmarsh, retired well known rugby league player, now dairy farmer.

Following his retirement from football he decided try his hand at dairy farming, seeing that he was from a dairy background he was well acquainted.  He was thanked by Ian McKellar and presented with a small gift of appreciation.

A reminder to members to bring along your money to our dinner if you have not yet paid. 

We are a week early this month and will be meeting at the Grenfell Country Club on December 10. Door roster for this meeting will be Allen and Bev Kelly.

The first Probus Club in Australia was formed in 1976. Probus Clubs are simple in structure and free from the constraints and obligations of service clubs.

Probus is ideal for semi-retired/ retired people providing regular opportunities to keep their minds active, to expand their interests and to enjoy the fellowship of new friends.

Grenfell Probus Club members enjoy regular trips throughout the year and meet monthly at the Grenfell Bowling Club. For more information please contact Grenfell Probus Club president Coral Mitton 63478118.
