It was a pleasure to host a group of ladies from the Brighton Ladies Probus Club for a tour of Parliament House on September 5th.
For many in the group it was their first time visiting Parliament House and there was no shortage of interesting questions and anecdotes.
The Probus Club of Brighton and Glenelg was the first Probus Club to form in South Australia on February 27, 1981.
Back in 1979, Tom Paxton, a member of Probus back in England suggested Brighton Rotary Club establish a Probus Club in the area. The club now meets every month at the Brighton Masonic Hall and has a wide range of Members.
A guest speaker is present at each monthly meeting and club members are encouraged to participate in a range of social and recreational activities. The Club sponsors several different special interest groups which facilitate good friendship and fellowship, heightened by the common interest of their members.
Although the Brighton Probus Club is a men's club many social activities involve partners, friends or family members who might be interested in attending.
