WYEE PROBUS CLUB
WE HAVE just celebrated the first anniversary of our club operation and what fun it's been on the way, with some hard work too. We are well on the way to becoming Incorporated with the Department of Fair Trading. During this last year we have grown from 13 to 45 members and we are still looking for a few more members. Our Picnics in our local parks has been a great success along with our outings to Brownies Café, Muma Mia show at the Capitol Theatre, The Japanese Gardens at East Gosford, the Riverboat Postman on the Hawksbury River, Aunt Mollies at Wyong Golf Club, Coast 89 Café at Toowoon Bay, to name a few and that's just so far this year. We have a very active committee who organise these activities and outings. Most of our members have struck up new friendships that they would never have had if it weren't for our Probus Club and I guess it is the same with other Probus Clubs around Australia. So if you want to have some fun, come along and check us out. We meet at the Doylson Wyee RSL Club on the second Tuesday of every month at 10am for 10.15am start. Phone Jeff on 0416 127 148.

ROTARY CLUB OF WOY WOY SUPPORTS AUSSIE FARMERS
THE Rotary Club of Woy Woy have been busy out on the streets and at supermarkets fundraising for the drought stricken Australian farmers. Covering the Peninsular and even as far a field as Erina, they have managed to raise in excess of $4100. They are hoping that it will go some way in helping the farmers overcome the lack of feed for their livestock until, hopefully, they get some rain.
