Social Events / Activities

    The Social Events and Activities that take place throughout the year are the herbs and spices of the Probus Perth menu. They add zest to the program and help to bring members together in pursuit of common interests and friendship.

    We have been exceptionally fortunate to have had such interesting activities over the years.

    For all events, priority is given to members and their guests. If there is room, members of other Probus Clubs are welcome to attend. For some events there may be minimum numbers of people required to proceed and there is usually a charge, payable in advance. The advance payments are normally reimbursed in full if the members are unable to attend or the activity does not proceed, unless a non-refundable deposit has to be paid to reserve the event. The club attempts to break even on all special activities.

    Tickets may be paid for either by cheque or by e-Transfer. Please see PAYMENTS-PROBUS PERTH.
