Probus Clubs exist to fill a need of retired persons in the community who have been accustomed to high levels of vocational activity and decision making in their working lives. The principal objective of every Probus Club is to create and maintain a homogeneous group that provides the fellowship and intellectual stimulation.

30 years of Cinema Nova – Australia’s favorite independent.
30 years of Cinema Nova – Australia’s favorite independent.

Since opening in August 1992 Cinema Nova has become a Melbourne institution thanks to it’s dedication to bringing arthouse and quality cinema to the movie lovers of our city. The cinema’s diversity of on-screen entertainments has not only led it to become the largest independent cinema in Australia, if not the world; it has also seen Melbourne become a major centre for the moving image, leading to a thriving culture offering more theatrical diversity than can be found anywhere else in the southern hemisphere. Kristian, as CEO, will speak on the history of the cinema as well as the larger topic of the magic of going to the movies and how it has fended off a century of new technological evolutions that naysayers have incorrectly predicted would lead to the demise of the movie going experience.

STORIES

 
GAMES DAY - General Meeting 4.8.22 WOW! What a day and what competition! Five game stations were set up around the large space at The Hub. We had Golf Putting; Carpet Bowls; Corvette Races; Velcro Dart and Finska. The volunteer leaders did a great job in making sure everyone was enjoying themselves. The overall winner of each game received a bag of gold coins! It was the Commonwealth Games all over again! Thank you to all that came to participate - it was a lot of fun.
We had a great roll up for Table tennis on Wednesday! Participants went home feeling exhilarated after much laughter, running around and some serious scoring as well!  The group meet twice a month at the Library at the Dock. 
On Thursday 25th September, 8 members and 1 lovely friend met in South Melbourne for a tour of the Australian Tapestry Workshop. This is a unique heritage premises, dedicated to the creation of commissioned tapestries, mostly large, for use as decorative wall hangings for both public and private buildings.
              
Seven enthusiastic walkers hoped for the best weather that day and luckily it was kind to us. The walk was led by Gary Oxley.  The highlight of the walk was visiting the local organic community garden called DIG IN located at JL Murphy Reserve in Williamstown Rd Port Melbourne.
