On October 1st, Cleveland Lighthouse will be lit in blue and yellow, commencing Probus Month celebrations. The day is designated by the United Nations as the “International Day of Older Persons”. Throughout October, landmarks across Australia will be lit including the Story, Victoria and Breakfast Creek Bridges, Reddacliff Place, and Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens Dome on October 8th.

Probus, with over 400,000 members worldwide, promotes social interaction and fellowship among retired and semi-retired people and this year’s theme is “Good Friends, Great Times, New Adventures”.

Clubs will celebrate Probus Month with a variety of events such as lunches, picnics, BBQs, and themed events.

Probus offer a range of activities including trips, lunches, dinners, theatre shows, special interest groups, book clubs, outings for members to enjoy, and more to match their interests, lifestyle, and location.

Carindale Probus, which was formed in 1996 and has 100 members, will celebrate by holding a “Picnic in the Park” at Carindale Reserve. “The picnics always prove to be an extremely social event and this year the club has invited representatives from Federal, State, Council and other community organisations to come along to celebrate with club members,” said club president, Chris Lintott.

Carindale Probus Club meets monthly at the Belmont Services Bowls Club, Carina, to enjoy the company of like-minded members and hear from interesting guest speakers. Membership is open to anyone who is retired or semi-retired.
