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.
History of our Club
Melbourne Sunrise Probus Club is a member of the international Probus organisation and is accredited in the South Pacific region. MSPC is non-political and non-sectarian.  It is a "not for profit" organisation and has no fund raising activities. The emphasis is on the club being free from the constraints and obligations of service clubs and on allowing members to participate at minimum personal cost. MSPC has a number of activities and interest groups designed to promote active minds and bodies, with an emphasis on social interactions. Members are encouraged to enjoy the fellowship of new friends. The club membership limit is 120.

STORIES

                   
“The Probus Coffee Club was only able to have a “Zoom Get-Together” on Wednesday 8th of September, however, the 21 smiling attendees were all grateful to have the contact. 
Kim our President, on his daily walks, has agreed to submit landmarks for publication so that we can get to know our city better. It could be a challenge for some of us to identify where these land marks are to be found.
SEPTEMBER Movies@Home was a very positive experience for the seventeen members who viewed it. A healthy participation rate for a movie with the title ‘The Straight Story’ and a synopsis that didn’t really excite one’s interest. 
                         
                         
Spring witnessed the launch of a new Probus activity called ‘Artspace’. Artspace is an opportunity to go wild with some creative energy for about an hour. A facilitator sets some guidelines for an exploration into ways of seeing. All that is required are a small number of basic materials and the desire to be engaged in “right side of the brain” activity.
Oh dear! Golfers were not able to golf this week because the State missed the 80% first vaccination dose target.  However, five of our members met up at Royal Park Golf Course on Monday to check the condition of the course.  Two took their poodles on a walk and the remainder strolled down to Park Street to buy takeaway coffee from Streat Cafe next to the Juvenile Justice Centre.  We can report that the golf course is in superb condition and we will be playing our first game on Monday 4 October 2021 at 10am.
                                     
Several MSPC members were seen at the Bastille Day Luncheon sponsored by the Melbourne Ladies Committee on Wednesday, July 14th.  Held at the Kooyong Tennis Club the MSPC Table was beautifully hosted by Barbara Hanisch.  Philipa Bergman-Hill was the lucky winner of one of the raffle prizes. All good time was had by all!
                                                         
On Wednesday 7 July, twenty of our members signed up for the walk around Fitzroy under the guidance of local historian and tour guide Michael Shelford.
