So you want to form a Probus club?
Congratulations. You will find it an interesting and satisfying experience; but what’s more important, you will be giving a group of retired people the opportunity to enjoy the fellowship of their peers, to expand their interests, to extend friendships and, possibly, to improve their health.
In fact, Probus will offer the same opportunities for the development of acquaintances, fellowship and interests as you may have found in any service club – without the obligations and service, or the rigid attendance requirements.
Probus, what is it?
A Probus club is a local association of retired and semi-retired professional and business people, and others who have had some measure of responsibility in any field of worthy endeavour – who are of character and respected in their communities. Clubs meet regularly for fellowship and an extension of their interests.
Probus is not a “senior citizens” or “lonely hearts” club.
The name is an amalgam of the abbreviation of the words professional and business. Probus is also a Latin word meaning honest or virtuous, from which the English word “probity” is derived.
