Important Notice to Members Booking and Attending Club Activities during COVID 19 Restrictions

                        President's Report

Hopefully you have been enjoying the warmer weather and the beautiful spring flowers that are already out! 

Thanks to Anita’s efficiency we were able to listen to Helen Crouch – general manager of Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Community Transport - at our August meeting at very short notice after unforeseen cancellations by two speakers! Helen gave us a very interesting and informative talk! 

Don’t forget the September meeting is “bring a guest” – so invite any friends (no cost for visitors this time) who I’m sure will enjoy listening to Nicholas Cowdery returning to speak to us for the second time after his popular talk a few months ago! 

Hope to see you at our Dinner and Trivia Night this week – Thursday 31st August!

                                                      “Bring a Guest” Month – September 2023 

You are encouraged to bring a guest to our General Meeting on Monday 11th September. 

  • Our speaker will again be Nicholas Cowdery AO KC FAAL, returning for a second time after his most popular talk  a few months ago. 
  • • Lucky Door prizes for members and guests. 
  • • Every visitor made welcome. 
  • • Guests welcome at other activities during the month also. 


Help grow your Club this month by inviting one or more friends! 


                             Probus Insurance  -  Please read

A little-known fact is that if a member’s partner/spouse who is not a Club member attends meetings or outings of our Club three times or more per Probus year (that is, 1st April to 31st March), they are required to pay $16.75 per annum to our Club (the amount was previously $15.00 per annum).

Our Club then passes this amount on to Probus South Pacific and means that the person concerned is covered by Probus South Pacific’s insurance should there be any reason to make a claim.

Partners/spouses are always welcome. Please let the Secretary or another member of the Management Committee know if the above information applies to you.

Mentie Knowles, Secretary
