THEY'RE visitors to the North Burnett and every year Probus members from Chinchilla enjoy a trip to the region, with this year's visit taking in the sights of Mundubbera and Eidsvold.

Probus is an association of retired and semi-retired people that was formed to help, advise, assist, co-ordinate and initiate activities and giving members a purpose.

President Jenny Wood said everyone enjoyed themselves last week.

"Last week old time residents of Reids Creek, John and Elaine Rackemann accompanied by 37 members of the Chinchilla Probus Club enjoyed a four-day visit to Mundubbera. The trip was organised by Rob Dalgleish and John Rackemann,” Mrs Wood said.

"We visited the RM Williams Centre in Eidsvold, Slack's Sawmill, Smart Berries and Joey's Orchard to see the new grading system operating.”

The group also remarked on the great job the Mundubbera Rotary was doing with beautifying the area along the Burnett river.

"All members attended a mixed Rotary dinner meeting,” she said.

"We were very impressed with Mundubbera, the friendliness of the people and the diversity of the area.”
