Rotary Corporate Golf Day – Review

Tuesday 12 March 2019

Last Tuesday our Probus Golf Club was again extended an invitation to participate in a Rotary Corporate Golf Day at the lovely Penrith Twin Pines Golf Course. The day was to raise funds for Rotary Health an organisation that supports work on a broad range of health problems especially in mental health plus support for the local Nepean Hospital.

Twelve of our members accepted the invitation and joined 120 golfers on the course.

Our golfers accredited themselves well with one of our teams of 4 comprising our captain Ron Hutchinson, Keith Stockwell, Steve Jurd and our president Brian Roylance taking out overall second place in the Rotary versus Probus teams event. (A great effort as our Probus members were giving the Rotary team many years start).

David Forsyth and Phil Canty were also well rewarded for their drives on the par three getting inside the club’s pro.

A great day was had by all followed by a healthy delicious buffet lunch. It is the clubs intention to participate in a number of charity events throughout the year.

If any Probus members would like to join us for golf on any Friday afternoon please contact our current captain Ron Hutchinson.

New Interest Group – Art Group

From the 14 March 2019, the Art Group will meet weekly on Thursday 2:00–4:30 pm in the Breakfast Point Admin building during the school term.

The group aims to work together to further their creative talents, to encourage one another and to enjoy each other’s company. People must bring their own materials to work and develop their own art piece on most weeks. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring their own mug or cup. On the fourth Thursday of each month there will be a special activity such as a demonstration, talk or visit to a gallery.

The group welcomes people with different level of ability, from beginners to budding Botticelli. Outdoor drawing and painting excursions in the local area are a focus. The group takes a break during the school holidays.

If you are interested in joining, contact Connie Fraser.

The first cook book’s French evening

An evening of bonhomie and French cuisine … the First Cookbook Club.

Twelve Probus members gathered for a lively evening of delicious food and good conversation at the home of Jane and Gilbert Elliot on Saturday evening.

The menu included Nicoise Salad, cote d’agneau, poulet francais, ratatouille, mocha Pots de Creme, tarte de pomme et chocolat mousse … all washed down with vin rouge et vin blanc. (With apologies to my high school French teacher).

It was a great opportunity for members to meet people and sample a new menu.
