Drummoyne Probus Club

What is Probus?

Retire from work, not life.

Probus is an association for active members of the community, and for those no longer working full time, to join together in clubs for a new lease of life.

Its basic purpose is to advance intellectual and cultural interests amongst adult persons; to provide regular opportunities to progress healthy minds and active bodies through social interaction and activities, expand interests and to enjoy the fellowship of new friends.

Age is not a number but how you feel inside.

Probus offers many member benefits to keep you young, including international and domestic travel, daytrip excursions, luncheons and opportunities to meet new friends. 

Probus is a community service activity of Rotary clubs. 

Probus has filled a need for today's active retirees, so much so that the growth has been phenomenal.

It is now a world-wide movement in twenty three countries. 

The Probus Centre - South Pacific Inc., is the Administration and Service Centre for the South Pacific area and is dedicated to promoting the development of friendship and acquaintance and the advancement of intellectual interests of its membership

Drummoyne Probus History by Jane Cummins-Stuart         (July 2009)

As many members are aware, Drummoyne Rotary has sponsored the new PROBUS Club of Drummoyne.

The Club is now well and truly up and running, having held their first general meeting at Drummoyne Sailing Club on 2nd April when 70 new members attended (it is the Club’s intention to limit membership numbers to 100). Their President is John Halmarick and the Secretary is Bill Fletcher.

At their first meeting, John Halmarick stated that “Drummoyne PROBUS will be an active club with members enjoying regular outings, dinners and excursions”. He feels that PROBUS fills a need for today’s active retirees.

Drummoyne Rotarian Kaye Loder was instrumental in helping to set up the new PROBUS Club and she and our President, Dale Larsen, both attended the first general meeting. Kaye, Colleen Moore, Margaret Micheletti and Pat Scott have all joined PROBUS.

President Dale will be presenting Drummoyne PROBUS with their Certificate of Accreditation at their July meeting.
