Seniors Expo City of Monash

During the month of October, the City of Monash participated in the state-wide Victorian Seniors Month celebrations by offering a wide range of activities for Seniors living in Monash.

The culminating event was a Seniors Expo held at Central Reserve, Glen Waverley, on Sunday 30 October. A wide range of organisations and Clubs from within Monash participated in the Expo. They were able to showcase their contribution to providing Monash’s Seniors with the opportunity to participate in active pastimes. There was also a program of entertainment and music for the visitors.

The Probus Club of Mount Waverley took the opportunity to participate in the Expo. The Club’s objective was not to promote itself but, rather, to promote the wider view that Probus is an organisation that caters to the needs of Seniors in both Monash and in other communities. One of the handouts available to visitors was a Probus brochure which included the contact details for all Probus Clubs in the City of Monash. Many people visited Club’s stand and were interested in learning about Probus. The stock of Probus brochures depleted very quickly!

Some photos from the Expo are below. The first shows the Club stand, featuring blue and gold Probus colours. The stand was staffed throughout the day by members of the Club.

But, during the day the Club’s stand had a visit from Michael Ransom, the Victorian and Tasmanian representative on the PSPL Board. Michael is shown in the second photo with Bruce Morley, President of The Probus Club of Mount Waverley and, coincidentally, Michael’s predecessor on the PSPL Board.

The Club is very proud to have had the opportunity to present the Probus world to the Seniors of the City of Monash.
