Welcome to Greenway Combined Probus

 

Welcome to our website! Friendship, Fun and Fellowship. Those are the aims of Probus. Our Greenway Combined Club is located in Canberra's beautiful Tuggeranong Valley. We provide the opportunity for retired and semi-retired people to keep their minds active, expand their interests and make new friends. Probus Clubs are non-political and non-sectarian. They are non profit making and do not raise funds for charity, the emphasis is on fellowship and fun.
