Probus Club of Blacktown City Combined
What IS Probus? Probus is an association of active retirees who join together in clubs, the basic purpose of which is to provide regular opportunities for them to keep their minds active, expand their interests and to enjoy the fellowship of new friends.
These pages give a glimpse of how Blacktown Probus achieves that purpose, and how you can be part of it!
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 celebrated our 20th birthday
at our monthly meeting on October 28, 2014 - with an impressive number of Foundation Members in attendance!
