For first timers, welcome to the Melbourne Bearbrass Probus website and welcome back to regular viewers. Now that we are in 2022, it does seem like normality has returned (other than masks in shops, new strains of Covid and QR codes etc etc). (Pic left: Pam, grandson Lenny and Mel)
The Christmas dinner was a great success, thanks to the organisational talents of Julie C, supported by Cate T and Sue H. Being the first time we had met without masks for many, many months, it was a wonderful opportunity to renew friendships and personally meet those who had previously only been a screen on a Zoom meeting. Our next meeting will be for lunch (at The Clarendon Hotel) on January 11th   from 1 pm and then an exciting trip to Castlemaine (arranged by our super-star organiser, Jan S), on January 19th.   It is anticipated that by February 2022, we will be back at The Dock library for our monthly speaker meetings.   
The annual general meeting is on March 8th, where the committee for 2022/23 will be elected. Nominations for the new committee are now open, so all members, please give some thought to the role you would like to take (even if you don’t want to be a committee member, there are other roles that are needed to be filled) and drop an application (it can be downloaded from the RHS of this page at “Download Forms”) to Secretary Sue before or at, the general meeting on  February 8th.
I trust that you all had a happy new year and look forward to seeing you all in 2022.
