The Committee of the Nelson Bay Ladies Probus recently held a Members free barbeque. Jill Stephenson told News Of The Area, “It was held at Birubi Sands Lifestyle Village and you can see from the photo, there was much laughter and hilarity.“ The ladies were very thankful, that some of the members husbands joined in to help with the barbeque and heavy lifting. Jill dragged in her heavy keyboard for some “dinner music” at lunchtime. The members and their guests enjoyed a wonderful barbeque, with lovely food, great fun, music and friendship. “many thanks to all who helped,” said Jill. There are plenty of social opportunities for Probus Club members, and not all of them are costly, in fact many are free to members. Probus is all about Friendship, Fellowship and Fun in retirement. Probus provides retirees with the opportunity to join together in clubs and to progress healthy minds and active bodies through social interaction and activities with retirees in your community, opening the door to new experiences and friendships. At the clubs monthly meetings you can hear wonderful guest speakers, and of course, stay active by participating in a wide range of activities and explore your community, your country or the world. Probus offers a range of member benefits and to quote a recent Probus Club member “the day I joined my Probus Club, I instantly had 100 new friends” – That is Probus, Friendship, Fellowship and Fun. There are 130,000 retirees across Australia and New Zealand today who are active Probus Club members.
