Probus Club of Kapiti Coast Turns 45!

Probus Club of Kapiti Coast Turns 45!

The first Probus Club in the South Pacific was the Probus Club of Kapiti Coast Inc. in New Zealand.

The Probus Club of Kapiti Coast Inc. was formed on 5th November 1974 and celebrates its 45th anniversary today. 

Over the past 45 years, Kapiti Coast has embraced Probus Fun, Friendship and Fellowship and continues to grow and flourish with a membership of 146 with many more interested in joining.

The strength of the Probus Club of Kapiti Coast is a testament to the leadership and hard work of it's past and current members.

To mark this milestone the Club organised a celebratory morning tea on Thursday, 31 October, the date closest to its founding.

Members took the time to celebrate in style with a morning tea and to reflect on all the hard work put in over the years by so many people.  

The club room was full with a great turn out of both members and new people wanting to join.

After a brief history of how the Club started, RDPC Simon Manning presented a 45 year award with all Past Presidents.

Followed by Life Member and Past President, Eileen Fleury who cut the celebratory cake.

The Club also made it to the New Zealand Herald Newspaper, you may access the online version here:
