A new Probus club was launched on the Bellarine on March 7.

The Probus Club of Point Lonsdale and District got off to a great start with 15 membership applications accepted on the day.

Probus is fun and friendship in retirement. Membership is open to anyone who is retired or semi-retired.

Probus Clubs offer a range of activities including trips and outings for

members to enjoy, depending on their interests, lifestyle and location. Probus Club members meet monthly, to enjoy the company of like-minded fellow retirees and listen to interesting guest speakers.

Michael Ransom, chairman of Probus South Pacific, led the initial interest meeting.

The next meeting will be held at Point Lonsdale Surf Life Saving Club on Thursday April 4 at 9.15 for a 9.30am start. Everyone is welcome to come along and find out more.

“It is wonderful to have this opportunity to start a new club aimed towards social activities, fun and friendship,” the club’s inaugural president Helen Grant said.

The new club is sponsored by Ocean Grove Rotary.
