A PROBUS Club is a local association of retired and semi-retired PROfessional and BUSiness people who enjoy socialising with new friends, old colleagues and fellow professionals.
The Aberdeen Clubs offer an opportunity to discuss and exchange views and ideas and build a wider social network.
Members assemble for a chat over tea and coffee prior to the meeting which starts with club news and business followed by an interesting talk, usually from visiting speaker.
There are Club lunches and walking, bowling, golf, book and music appreciation sections as additional club activities. Outings to places of interest are occasionally organised.
