The Ladies Probus Club of Oakleigh proudly celebrated its 30th birthday recently. The club was founded on 11th September, 1989, comprising 26 original members.

The current President, Veronica Stow, presented special badges and certificates to four ladies who have remained with the club since its inception. The club is most grateful to these foundation members: Betty Simmons, Gwen Bennett, Shirley Kirk and Ann Koch for all their efforts and service over 30 years. Betty, the club's first President had the honour of cutting the beautiful cake!

In addition, Pat Lovegrove was awarded “life member” at the birthday celebration in appreciation of all her efforts and hard work over many years.

Today the Ladies Probus Club of Oakleigh remains strong with 63 members who enjoy participating in meetings, outings, events and trips away together.

The ladies agree that Probus has been a wonderful way to meet others in similar circumstances, to share common interests, to expand friendships and to foster a sense of belonging within a community. They are thankful for the friendly, happy fellowship enjoyed as a result of their club’s foundation three decades earlier.

A very happy milestone indeed.
