The 82 members who attended December's very Christmassy, and also last meeting for 2018 of Tollgates Probus Club Batemans Bay were all in favour of getting the boring bits (minutes, finance, reports and so on and on and on) out of the way quickly.
That was to attend to the important stuff - morning tea (with home-made Christmas cake), and the entertainment provided by the Batemans Bay U3A Singers.
The singers, led by conductor Lyn Brown and accompanied by Jan Elias, performed a very popular mix of Christmas and non-Christmas songs with plenty of audience participation.
The choir plus audience's combined rendition of the very popular 1939 hit You Are My Sunshine was a real roof-raiser.
Probus is all about friendship, fellowship and fun in retirement. Probus provides an opportunity to join together to progress healthy minds and active bodies through social interaction and activities.
