Outreach the key for Gympie probus

GYMPIE Probus needs to continually reach out to encourage new members to keep the club strong, according to new president Greig Nissen.

Mr Nissen was speaking about the future of the club during his induction at the recent changeover lunch at the Gympie Bowls Club.

More than 70 members and guests attended the meeting where outgoing president Joy Telfer reported on a successful year for the club, including hosting the Wide Bay Probus Fun Fest.

Lunch guests included Probus Association of Queensland president Peter Bishop and his wifeJudy, as well as Wide Bay Probus liaison officer Pam Carlson.

Guest speaker was Brisbane-based veterinarian and inveterate world traveller Tony Nahrung who spoke about his time in Galapagos.
