We are now a combined club.
We are now a combined — men’s and women’s — club. This change has been operating successfully for most of 2016.
Day-to-day news is now found on the new Happenings page.
We’re 30 – a notable anniversary.
PROBUS WA President Graeme Brown joined members on the 30th anniversary of the branch’s formation and made some flattering observations about our performance. He was particularly impressed, he said, with our newly-established website. He congratulated Ned Overton on its design, which he suggested would be a model for other branches.
He also spoke of negotiations with Probus South Pacific Ltd in Sydney. A 30th Anniversary plaque was presented to our President. Congratulations were also extended to Ron Seares and Noel Monks, who were present and original members of the club.
After presenting President Peter Wesley with the branch’s 30th anniversary certificate, Graeme noted that there were now 170 branches in WA, with four more about to be established. Also notable was WA’s influence nationally, with all 10 WA suggestions for changes to the movement’s constitution being accepted at a recent meeting of top officers in Sydney.
