25 years of fun

The Combined Probus Club of Knox recently celebrated its 25th birthday. Members attended a special luncheon and welcomed some of the original 1998 Foundation members who are still active within the Club.

They were honoured with a presentation of Certificates of Appreciation/Recognition and assisted with cutting the birthday cake.

Everyone enjoyed good food and company plus had a bit of fun with a “Fancy Hat” competition, which was won by Jan and Terry.

Jan was wearing a simple yet eye-catching creation, made of blue and yellow balloons, while Terry had worked Western red cedar on his lathe to create his wooden hat, and even added a specially crafted Probus badge.

A special photo presentation ran continuously on a large screen during the function, highlighting people and events from across the 25 years, as members past and present enjoyed the activities on offer.

Many members received Lucky Door Prizes generously donated by local businesses. Special thanks go to The Cake Box Café, Daniels Donuts, McKay’s Butchers, Chemist Warehouse, Bunnings, Darrell Lea, Dan Murphy’s, and the Stamford Hotel who generously donated products or Gift Vouchers.

The Club would welcome some new members, so if you would like to join this group of active, retired men and women who enjoy outings, day trips, theatre/musicals in the city, dine out lunches, and walking group, plus hearing interesting speakers at the monthly meetings, contact 1300 630 488 or visit

Throughout the years the meetings have been held and continue still, on the first Tuesday morning of each month at the Stamford Hotel. Why not come along as a “visitor” to see if the Club suits you. Regular social connection within the local community is vital to our health and wellbeing as we age.
