inaugural meeting of the Probus Club of Glenroy (Mens) was held on
29th September 1988 at the Broadmeadows Rotary Clubrooms. A
committee of 10 was elected with Rotarian George Hunichen as the first
President. The first regular meeting was held on Tuesday 11th
October 1988 at the Uniting Church Hall, Wheatsheaf Road, Glenroy,
with 16 Foundation Members present.
Since its formation the Club has met at the Uniting Church Hall every
second Tuesday of the month, except that since 1999, the March general
meeting and AGM have been held at the Masonic Centre at Oak Park.
The monthly meetings are followed by a guest speaker , with a break
for tea, coffee and good fellowship.
monthly or bi-monthly social outings and tours have played an important
part in the Club's activities and have included tours as far away
as Tasmania, Kangaroo Island, Flinders Ranges, Newcastle and Gosford,
Norfolk Island, Cape York and New Zealand. Club members may invite wives, husbands
and friends to participate in outings and tours subject to limits
on group numbers.
Particular interest groups of the Club include a Strolling Group,
Golfing, Bowls and a Computer Group. Since 1990 the Club
has entered teams in the State Annual Probus Open Bowls Fours
Event. There is potential in the Club for additional interest
groups. For example, the Club includes several avid cyclists,
photographers and coin collectors.
We also hold a monthly Coffee and friendship morning, Sip'N'Chat.
