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 18th birthday at our monthly meeting on October 30, 2012.
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.
In December we shall meet to celebrate Christmas with our special luncheon.
The next General Meeting will be held on TUESDAY, JANUARY 28, 2014. You’ll be very welcome!
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 - on January 28 that will be Sue Tolhurst from the Dementia Advisory Board, who will be telling us of ways to keep the brain active to keep dementia at bay.
