The word “PROBUS” is an amalgam of the words “PROfessional” and “BUSiness” (people).
It is an association of active retirees that originated in the UK in 1965 and now has clubs in 22 countries. It provides club members with opportunities to keep their minds active, expand their interests and enjoy the fellowship of new friends.
Frank and Manfred (pictured) say the Cooloola Coast Probus Club includes members from Rainbow Beach, Cooloola Cove and Tin Can Bay.
We meet every second Monday of each month for afternoon tea and a presentation by a guest speaker at 2.30pm, at the Sandcastle Motel in Tin Can Bay.
Come along to the next on December 11 where we have arranged for a talk about ‘Disaster Management’. The topic at the first meeting in the new year will be ‘Waterways Safety’.
The group organise several other activities each month such as trips, walks, cruises and attendance of cultural events in nearby towns. We would welcome new members. To find out more, call Manfred Gessner: 0405 406 629
