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.

'Tis the season to be jolly ...So don't forget MSPC Christmas lunch is fast approaching! 
“Club 31” had a terrific attendance of more than 30 Probus Members. The noise level with the conversation was at a substantial level, and certainly showed a great deal of conviviality.  What a magnificent evening of “Friendship, Fellowship and Fun”. Everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable time at “Gaylord”, and found it a terrific way to “break” the 4-day weekend!! 
Take a heaping spoonful of “New Nordic” add a dash of Korean cuisine combined with twelve MSPC Members and you have the perfect recipe for a delightful “Dinner at 6ix” at FREYJA, a recent addition to the Melbourne dining scene.  September 27th was the launch of the “Dining at 6ix”  Interest Group and the evening at FREYJA proved to be a rousing success.  For some the evening concluded at VALHALLA, Melbourne’s take on a Scandinavian style underground bar.  
On Thursday 29th September a group of members enjoyed a chatty morning train ride to Geelong.  At the Gallery, a talk by one of our group, Jenny Eltham, gave us fascinating detail on the lives of Melbourne artists Ethel Spowers and Eveline Syme, and the importance of their contribution to Australian art.  This background provided additional insight into the exhibition, and we lingered over the prints, paintings, woodblocks and artefacts from the painter’s lives.
Rain- what’s a drop of rain to the indomitable MSPC walking group? Well, the BoM forecast showed a 90% chance of rain, and they got it right. Fortunately it was mostly very light with very little wind. We walked through Birrarung Marr to the outer reaches of Yarra Park, and back through the Fitzroy gardens to the Kere Kere Green coffee shop for our first reward. A visit to the Conservatory was a second reward- it is looking at its spectacular best at the moment. Then we made a dash to Fed Square before a deluge. 
A lovely bunch of members turned up to watch AMSTERDAM and then afterwards gathered for dinner at Grill'd in Flinders Lane.
