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 next regular meeting, the first for 2018, will be held on Tuesday 23rd January. Our guests will be from Yooralla’s Independent Living Centre (ILC). This centre supports people with disability and seniors, their families and carers to access information about communication and assistive technology. The team can help to enhance functional independence at home, at work, and in the local community, further empowering people to live the life they choose. Communication and assistive technology can include equipment to enhance and support independence, including (but not limited to):
- day-to-day equipment in the home
- mobility equipment such as walkers
- wheelchairs, and
- modifications to the environment.
