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 19th birthday
at our monthly meeting on October 29, 2013.
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, MARCH 25, 2014, and will be followed by the Annual General Meeting. 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, usually followed by a guest speaker, but on March 25 it will be followed by the Annual General Meeting.
