Probus Ladies Club lunch a success: Canowindra played host to the Orange Probus Ladies Club on Thursday, with the club using Tommy Jeffs’ services at Montrose House for its Christmas in July luncheon. A busload of 40 women travelled from Orange to Montrose House, and Tommy Jeffs had them arrive an hour early so they could spend some time checking out other Canowindra businesses before lunch was served. They also had the chance to look at the Christmas in July decorations that are on display.
Tickets still available for Christmas in July dinner: Tommy Jeffs is encouraging the people of Canowindra to purchase tickets for the Christmas in July function being held at Montrose House on 23 July. To secure your place phone Tommy at Deli Lama on 6344 1006.
