Ringwood Clocktower Probus Club – 3rd Birthday Celebrations

By May 19, 2010May 30th, 2010No Comments

The Ringwood Clocktower Probus Club meets on the third Wednesday of each month at the Ringwood RSL.  The Club is one of Maroondah’s newer Probus Clubs and this afternoon I joined members in celebrating its third birthday.

The Ringwood Clocktower Probus Club has a strong emphasis on social activities and has an active photography group, which had several of their photographs on display.  One of the exhibitions provided a comparison of Melbourne through photographs taken fifty years ago and today, reflecting on the changes that have taken place over this time.

As part of the proceedings I spoke to the members where I congratulated them on the formation of the Club and for having such a strong and active membership.  I also discussed Council’s vision for the future, including the redevelopment of Ringwood Aquatic Centre, into a modern facility that includes water and wellbeing components.  The redeveloped facility will better cater to the needs of the Maroondah community through providing a facility that will offer a range of recreational activities.

Probus Clubs provide a range of activities for their members and it is encouraging to see the Ringwood Clocktower Probus Club flourishing after three years.  Importantly many of its members are also active in a number of other community organisations demonstrating the volunteering spirit that exists within Probus.
