A number of small interest groups are part of all PROBUS Clubs and can be an enjoyable way of getting to know members of the overall group in a smaller and maybe less intimidating way.  These activities are normally held once a month at various locations and last an hour to two with a lot of chatting and friendship.  Listed below are our Club’s activities.  Each month a newsletter is provided at the General Meeting giving all activities for the following month and advance warning of future events.  The names and numbers of co-ordinators of all activities are listed on the newsletter but please ask any member if you need to know more
