Originated in the United Kingdom in 1965, Probus is now a world-wide movement in twenty three countries;
it is a community service activity of Rotary Clubs. New Zealand joined its ranks in 1974, Australia in 1976, and Blacktown Probus was formed on October 25, 1994: we shall celebrate our 20th birthday
at our monthly meeting on October 28, 2014.
The monthly meetings of Probus Club of Blacktown City (Combined) Inc. are held on the last Tuesday of each month, commencing at 10.00a.m., and the venue is Blacktown Workers’ Club, 55 Campbell Street, Blacktown, in the Ballroom (first floor), now also known as Events @ 55.
The next General Meeting will be held on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2014, when celebrating our 20th Birthday will be the order of the day.
Usually, after the opening business component (sometimes funny business??) of monthly meetings is completed, everyone looks forward to a brief talk by a member about their history or interests or experiences; then comes morning tea, followed by a guest speaker. This time guests will be from Probus South Pacific, Rotary Club of Blacktown and the CEO of Blacktown Workers Club, and some old members will be welcomed: there will be shared memories, launch of a DVD, a finger-food lunch with a sumptuous birthday cake dessert, on departure, receipt of a commemorative booklet.
