 Members celebrated the 35th anniversary of the Combined Probus Club of Noble Park at a lunch on 12 September.

The social club, known for convivial outings, holidays and gatherings for 55s and over, lunched at the South Eastern Masonic Centre in Keysborough.

The function was marked with a cutting of a birthday cake by members Don and Jan Amos.

The neighbouring Sandown Probus Club also attended.

Like other Probus Clubs, the group is about fostering friendships and social connections among retirees.

It was founded in Noble Park in 1984, later meeting in Keysborough before returning to Club Noble as its ranks grew.

Its inaugural five-day holiday was a coach trip to the Blue Mountains several decades ago.

Many interstate and country tours have followed including to the Flinders Ranges, Tasmania, Merimbula, Wagga and the Ettamogah Pub.

Not to mention the countless day trips, mystery tours, coffee mornings, lunches and cinema excursions.
