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!
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, APRIL 28, 2015,
and will include our ANZAC Commemoration.
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 - who, on April 28 will be Susan Lewis from Pressed Flower Designs, who will give a demonstration on pressing flowers and also talk on “the secret language of flowers”.
On May 26 our guest speaker will be Joe Puntillo from the Department of Fair Trading.
