Gov­er­nor to help cel­e­brate Probus mile­stone

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

GOV­ER­NOR Kerry San­der­son will help cel­e­brate the Probus As­so­ci­a­tion’s 40th an­niver­sary at a past pres­i­dents lunch at the Royal Perth Golf Club.

The club was founded in Aus­tralia in 1976 to pro­vide a fo­rum for fel­low­ship, fun and in­tel­lec­tual stim­u­la­tion for ac­tive re­tirees.

It was in­tro­duced by the Hunters Hill Ro­tary Club in New South Wales and has grown to com­prise 130,000 mem­bers in 6000 clubs na­tion­ally, with 105 clubs in WA.

“We have much to cel­e­brate and we are de­lighted that the Gov­er­nor, who is our pa­tron, will join us,” pres­i­dent El­iz­a­beth Hardy said.

The first WA Probus Club was formed in Thorn­lie in 1982 and the Probus As­so­ci­a­tion of Western Aus­tralia was es­tab­lished two years later.

The lunch will be held to­mor­row, start­ing at mid­day, and is open to all Probus mem­bers.
