THREE decades of laughs, friendship and support were celebrated yesterday when the Probus Club of Grafton celebrated its 30th birthday.

The non-political, non-sectarian group of companions celebrated the milestone with a special lunch at the Grafton District Golf Club which included a visit from national Probus Club dignitaries and the handing out of special honours.

Life Membership Awards were given to Jack Lumley and Athol Mulligan for their loyalty and support to the club and its members over the years.

Milestone Awards were given to Tas Cameron, Harry Layton and Bill Skelly for 20 years or more of membership, while Stan Attewell, Bill Marr, Ron Timbs and Neville Truer received Milestone Awards for memberships of 25 years or more.

Like any birthday celebration, there was also a cake and Mr Lumley and Mr Mulligan - the Grafton club's last remaining foundation member - were given the honour of cutting it.

The Probus Club of Grafton meets on the third Thursday of every month at the South Grafton Ex-Services Club.
