Probus Clubs exist to fill a need of retired persons in the community who have been accustomed to high levels of vocational activity and decision making in their working lives. The principal objective of every Probus Club is to create and maintain a homogeneous group that provides the fellowship and intellectual stimulation that otherwise tends to be lost in retirement.
The Probus Club of Melbourne North meets regularly on the fourth Tuesday of each month (excepting December) at 10:30 am at the Waterloo Cup Hotel, at the corner of Maribyrnong Road and Scotia Street, Moonee Ponds. Ample free parking is available in the car park behind the hotel, with access from Scotia Street. Members of the club enjoy many other activities – explore the links above. Guests are welcomed at general meetings and activities of the Club. A Club business meeting is held first, followed by morning tea and then a guest speaker. The majority of members at each meeting like to remain for lunch in the bistro at the Waterloo Cup Hotel.
The inaugural meeting of the Probus Club of Melbourne North was held at North Melbourne Football clubrooms on Wednesday 9th November 1994. The next regular meeting, on Tuesday 26th November, will be a special celebration to mark the 25th Anniversary of the Club. The “business” part of the meeting will be abbreviated to allow time to recognise the founders and history of the Club. We will toast the Anniversary with bubbles and finger food, and founding members will cut an Anniversary cake. Instead of our normal speaker we will have some musical entertainment. We hope that most members and guests will remain to enjoy a convivial lunch together.
