30 years in the making

The Canberra Lakes Ladies’ Probus Club’s 30th anniversary celebrations at the March 2023 AGM were special.

The First President, 20th year President and First Life Member, Joyce, now in her 90th year, was there with her unflagging support for the Club.

It all began with an ‘Interest Meeting’ followed by sponsorship by the Rotary Club of Canberra that led to the granting of Probus accreditation. Membership was fixed at 60, that number quickly being reached and a waiting list holding fast for some years.

Although recent numbers have not met that level, there is movement to attract new, younger people.

Throughout the 30 years, the Club met continuously (except during the COVID-19 years) in the warm, welcoming ambience of the Robertson Room at Canberra’s historic St John’s Church and always in the spirit of the Probus goals of ‘Fun and Friendship’.
