New President for the Norfolk Island Probus Club

Friday, September 09, 2016

Probus Club of Norfolk Island members this week witnessed the installation of John Anderson as their 2016/2017 President by David Pegman, President of the Rotary Club of Norfolk Island. 

To honour the occasion, renowned violinist, Eric Craig MBE, a former President of the Rotary Club of Norfolk Island, shared some humorous events from his musical career and demonstrated the function and beauty of the violin with a variety of musical items.

Probus has been part of the Norfolk Island community since 1986.  After a brief hiatus, the Club was reenergised in April 2016 and members now meet monthly and enjoy the stimulation of a monthly guest speaker.  In addition to Eric Craig MBE, speakers have included Norfolk Island artist, Graham White; English visitor, Anne Hodkinson; and yoga practitioner, Natasha Arnold. Members are also invited to take part in activities related to their interests, such as history and art, outside of their regular monthly meetings.

Probus provides the opportunity for active members of the community over 55 years of age who are no longer working full time to join together for a new lease of life as Probus is built on the principle that age is not a number but how you feel inside. Members are encouraged to join in activities built around fun, friendship, fellowship and fitness. 

The Probus Club of Norfolk Island meets at 10.30 am on the first Tuesday of each month at Christians Cave in the Pitcairn Settlers Village. Our next meeting will be held on 4 October 2016.
