New Probus Club in Comox Valley

Probus is popular among retired and semi-retired couples and singles.

Local Probus Club presidents John Powell, Dennis McMahon and George Turner are leading the sponsorship of a new, fourth club in the Comox Valley.

Probus is popular among retired and semi-retired couples and singles with three local chapters flourishing and a combined 2013 membership of 550. The success of Probus, with its international scope and emphasis on activities-based social interaction, fits well with the Valleyʼs growing popularity as a retirement destination.

The challenges are a combined “wait list” of 63 individuals and meeting place limitations that preclude further growth of the existing clubs. In response, a decision was reached to sponsor the start of a fourth Probus Club in the Valley.

Interested? Plan to attend an informational meeting for prospective new members May 9 at 1:30 p.m. upper level in the Comox Legion Hall.
