The Club has also been fortunate to continue to hold their meetings at the Medowie Community Centre, with a Covid Protocol in the Centre to meet both Council and Probus requirements. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 10.00 am and retirees, and semi-retirees are welcome. Guest speakers are usually in attendance at each meeting and the aim is to apply the Probus Mantra. The mantra of Probus is Fellowship, Fun and Friendship and particularly in the current situation provides a break from the feeling of isolation.
