BALLARAT SOUTHERN CROSS PROBUS

SHARING and LEARNING TOGETHER

 
 

The monthly General Meeting is held on the Fourth Tuesday of the month at the Masonic Centre, 616 Barkly Street, Golden Point from 10am until 12 midday. 

After a brief formal meeting, news items etc we enjoy an extended morning tea to catch up with each other.

During the second part of the meeting we are usually treated to a presentation from an interesting speaker who may be a visitor or one of our own members.

                        All members are invited to join together for lunch at a local hotel after the meeting.
