With a combined service of 100 years, four Bundaberg and District Mixed Probus Club members have been awarded for their dedication.
Pam Campbell, Shirley Orpin, Anne Praed and Barb Roebeck recently each received awards for their 25 years of continuous service.
Bundaberg and District Mixed Probus Club’s Hazel Patterson congratulated the ladies who received their awards at a Probus Day function at Café 1928.
“This year’s theme is Probus Provides Unlimited Possibilities in Retirement,” Hazel said.
“The club also took the opportunity to present awards to four members who have been members for 25 years and more.”
Probus – derived from professional and business – is an association of retired and semi-retired people who come together as a non-political, non-sectarian and non-profit club first formed in Australia in 1976.
Hazel said Probus was all about fun and friendship in retirement and they were always looking for new members.
Probus members meet monthly to enjoy the company of like-minded fellow retirees and listen to interesting guest speakers.
“Probus provides retirees with the opportunity to connect socially, which is so important in today’s world,” she said.
“Membership is open to anyone who is retired or semi-retired, so why not join the tens of thousands of Probus members across Australia and New Zealand and find your local Probus club today.
“Probus clubs offer a range of activities including trips and outings for members to enjoy, depending on their interests, lifestyle and location.”
