Jamberoo Probus Club was officially launched on Thursday, with Kiama Rotary Club’s Mal Bracken delighted with the turnout.
More than 30 people attended, with apologies for 10 more, and Mr Bracken said it had set the stage for a bright future and the enthusiasm of all those in attendance seeming assuring the club of success.
Winton Brooke-Smith was elected as the foundation president and Jan Jones is his deputy, while Lee Jourdain will be secretary and Bruce Johnston treasurer. Angela Brooke-Smith, David Hall, Bob Shaw, Annette Hoskins and Kim Oborn will also fill important committee positions.
The club will meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month from 2pm at Club Jamberoo and anyone considering joining can do so by attending the next meeting on September 26.
Nomination fees are $35 on or before the September meeting or $40 thereafter. A fee of $2 per meeting is also applicable each meeting to cover afternoon tea.
