Across Australia retirees will be celebrating connections and encouraging family, friends and neighbours to explore social life through Probus.

Probus Association of Queensland’s President Rob Neary said “For the more than 10,000 members of Probus in Queensland, words like restrictions and distancing have become all too common.”

“For this reason alone, they are focusing on their social well-being and connecting with each other, in whatever way possible.”

“Our members frequently tell us that there is one basic truth that applies to almost everyone’s retirement years and that is the need for social interactions.” 

“The benefits of socialising are well documented and have proven to have a positive affect both physically and mentally, particularly in the mature generation.”

Probus club membership often provides a solution for achieving retirement goals.

It offers retirees and semi-retirees the opportunity to make new friends, experience new hobbies, participate in a wide variety of activities and enjoy listening to interesting guest speakers.

The 1st of October 2021 is Probus Day, and Park Ridge Probus Club will be celebrating throughout the month of October by enjoying a wide range of events, functions and activities.  

This years’ Probus Day theme is centred on the positive social connections that Probus provides. The theme “CELEBRATE PROBUS – DO A FRIEND A FAVOUR”

Members have been called into action, reminded that they will be doing their friends a favour by helping them to join, stay engaged and connected through a local Probus Club. 

While some areas are currently experiencing increased restrictions or lockdowns at this time, we must be encouraged that there are brighter days ahead. 

Probus members are inviting all retirees to consider joining their local Probus Club to have some much-needed fun and friendship.

Park Ridge Probus Club meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.
