"Yvonne and I were asked to go down to Grahamstown for a special Sports day at St Andrews College by our Son.
I decided to write to Port Alfred , Kowie  and the Grahamstown  Probus Clubs and informed them of our intention to visit their towns.
I received a happy and friendly reply from PP Doug Sutherland of Kowie asking me to make contact after the weekend, we had booked to spend a few days in  Port Alfred.
We met them for coffee at the Penny Farthing, a popular coffee bar in town and that night the Sutherlands and the Frances’s went for dinner to the Wharf Street Brew Pub. (Excellent food at a realistic price)
At our Coffee meeting we discussed the status of their Club. They are a men only Club with 90 Members and a waiting list.
I suggested that to capitalise on the potential, they should open another Club get 20 Members to volunteer to transfer across and to open up both Clubs and gather in all potentials.
This was considered to be a good idea.    -   Rodney J"
