Fran Wathen accepted the role of Probus Ambassador late last year and she sees herself as a promoter and representative of the concept of Probus and how it benefits and enhances the lives of members by not only providing fellowship, friendship and fun through the many activities that are on offer, but how it gives to members through exclusive discounts, special offers, and very good Travel Insurance plans.

Fran was also influenced by her own experience with Probus.

When she retired after a long and happy working life, she had concerns about how she would “fill her days”.

When a friend introduced Fran to her local Probus Club her retirement became a new beginning and not the ending that she had first envisaged and even dreaded.

Fran Wathen told News Of The Area, “Leaving Sydney to come to live in Port Stephens saw further association with Probus through the Port Stephens Probus Club.”

She believes that she has benefited from 15 years of a life full of new friendships, fun and laughter, participation in many outings and activities, and the genuine fellowship shown by members and other Probus Clubs.

“I have no hesitation in promoting this wonderful organisation that is found throughout Australia and New Zealand,” she said.

Fran is thoroughly enjoying visiting the other Probus Clubs in this beautiful area of Port Stephens and has been overwhelmed by the friendliness and warm welcome she always receives.

Fran recently attended The Hunter Regional meeting in Maitland and met Geoff Hamilton of Medowie Probus Club who was recently made an Ambassador.
