If you are driving between Yankalilla and Normanville past the Yankalilla RSL Hall and you see a large blue flag flying it signifies that there is a Probus Club meeting occurring inside.

If it is the first Tuesday in the month, it is the Men’s Club.

If it is the fourth Wednesday in the month, it is the Ladies Club.

The flag was purchased from a grant received from the Yankalilla Community Op Shop.

March is the end of the Probus year and at the Men’s Club’s annual general meeting, outgoing president Tim McCumiskey handed the President’s Collar and Gavel to Bryce Pritchard.

In doing so Tim highlighted the Fun, Friendship and Fellowship available by being a Probus Club member.

In the past year, five new members have been welcomed into the club and two of them have accepted committee positions.

At the meeting the club acknowledged Peter Whitford’s 90th birthday with a special presentation of a Certificate of Membership in the “Order of Ancient Men” in the Yankalilla Men’s Probus Club – a second OAM for Peter.

The guest speaker this month was Rob Kirk who described his involvement in an archaeological dig in Kent, where Roman artifacts are found amidst the evidence of the Battle of Britain in World War II.

Rob, as always, was entertaining and supported his address with artifacts he had collected.

Members have visited Carrick Hill this month and in April a visit to Monarto Safari Park is being organised.

The group meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 10am at the RSL Hall, 18 Main South Road, Normanville.
