Forward by the President

The last twenty years has witnessed the growth and maturing of our Probus Club. Though time may have flown and memories fade, an imaginative written history such as this can only help in reinforcing our perception and expectations for the successful future of this Club. The social side, visits to extraordinary places and quality of fellowship is well documented and stands to remind us all what we should be seeking for, in Probus.

On behalf of the committee and club members I would like to express our thanks to those who contributed, produced, edited and organised the printing of this cameo of our Club.

I consider it a privilege to have served on the committee and to be its President at this time.

Congratulations Glendowie Probus, I wish you all the best in future years.

Bob Clements






The collecting, compiling and writing of a Publication such as this, as part of the 20 year Celebration, is, along with the organization of such an event, a team effort.

My own thanks go to Frank Barton, Eric Heap, Glyn Filer, John Taylor and Maurice Caldwell. Without their help my task would have been more difficult.

I take this opportunity, on your behalf, to acknowledge the availability and facilities of the Bowling Club over the past 20 years and to thank all the past Committees who have served you.

As already mentioned, this History of our Club is all about people -members, past and present - I have endeavoured to include as many names as possible to make it more interesting and readable. I hope therefore, you enjoy your relaxed reading as much as I have in bringing it to you.

With a Club of this size and a 20 year tradition of spirit, variety and participation, going into the next 20 years we need new blood and new ideas. We need more members offering themselves for the committee.

"Take time out and reflect on the Golden Moments of a Passing Parade".

Tony Henrys.
