SALE Combined Probus Club was formed after a meeting attended by more than 50 people, which was held on October 25 and showed strong support to proceed.

The meeting was conducted by Michael Ransom, chair of Probus South Pacific Ltd, with support from Gayle Cayzer, Probus ambassador and president of Probus Club of Traralgon Combined, and Rotary District 9820 Probus liaison and past district governor Don Ripper, representing district governor 9820, Lynda Humphries.

A provisional committee was formed with Catherine Walsh, president; Marg Harty, vice president; Dianne Honey, secretary; and Jo Denny, treasurer, along with other office bearers.

Mr Ransom inducted Ms Walsh as provisional president and congratulated all concerned.

Probus is a Rotary-sponsored organisation promoting fun and fellowship for seniors.

The club will meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 10.30am at the Sale Greyhound Racing Club, Maffra Sale Rd, Sale.

The club has since been accredited and is looking forward to meeting new people for fun and fellowship. Membership enquiries can be made to Helen Silva on 0421 063 692.
