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 first meeting of the Probus Club of Melbourne North was held on Wednesday 9th November 1994. It celebrated its 25th Anniversary in November 2019.
The Club now 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 Annual General Meeting of the Club was held online on Tuesday 21st July. Currently, all other meetings and activities of the Probus Club of Melbourne North have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
