Probus caters to a wide variety of activities

Rolleston has a new Probus club

by Mike Isle

A second Probus Club has been formed in Rolleston after the existing club reached its membership capacity.

The new club will be called the Rolleston Central Probus Club and will bring to five the number of Probus clubs currently in Selwyn.

The convenor of the Rolleston Central Probus Club Margaret Drake said the club had a steering committee with a president, secretary and membership officer all in place.

“We will be working to compile an interesting and diverse programme for the coming months and expect our numbers will grow significantly,” she said.

“Fellow members will be of a similar age and live in our neighbourhood so we will immediately have something in common, and we will develop interest groups to cater for members talents and desires so that members can make the most out of their lives.”

Mrs Drake said that regular meetings with friends could improve our health, both physically and mentally, keep our minds sharp and our demeanour enthusiastic.

All Probus clubs in Australia and New Zealand are sponsored by a Rotary Club as part of its community service activity.

The new club had the support of the Rotary Club of Lincoln.

The club’s first meeting is on Tuesday, July 16 at 10am at the Rolleston Community Centre.

New members are welcome.
