if together with Rotary we can make our wonderful organisation even better. The details of your RDPC are included in the Directory of Probus Clubs or can be obtained from PCSP. Winston Marsh Rotary District 9465 Probus Chair man, Attadale Probus Club Note: You can also view Probus District Newsletters at the PCSP website. W: www.probussouthpacific.org/rdpc/ Where’s George? Love your new Active Retirees magazine but have been looking for George Kimpton's computer page as my friends and I have learnt a lot from him; he has helped me on several occasions. As we are living in a country area and there are not always computer lessons available for retirees, I really would love to see his pages coming back in the future so we can all become a bit more computer savvy. I’m looking forward to the next edition, and hopefully dear George has come back in it. Anna van Komen Naracoorte Ladies Probus Club Good news Anna: turn to page 43 for George’s all-new Q&A column! Subscriptions At a recent committee meeting of the Tumby Bay Probus Club we were discussing why only nine out of our 81 members subscribe to the publication Active Retirees. Congratulations on such a newsy magazine; it deserves more exposure than this. 8 | www.probussouthpacific.org Yourletters Ask your RDPC We all enjoy Probus, so let’s give our friends the opportunity for the fun, fellowship and friendship that we all know in Probus. They could join your club or, if you feel that your friends’ ages may be more suited to a newer, younger combined club, then pass on their names. What if there is not a local suitable combined club? The future of Probus is dependent on having suitable Probus Clubs available for the coming generation of baby boomers who are at retirement age, so Rotary District Probus Chairmen (RDPC) are there to investigate the need for new Probus clubs, seek sponsorship and support from the local Rotary club and, together with Probus Centre – South Pacific Inc, start a new club. See your RDPC if: • Your club has a waiting list of potential members • Your club is age or membership challenged • There is not a Probus club in your area • Your club is a single-gender Probus club RDPCs also have strategies to help clubs wishing to increase their membership and decrease the average age of members. For example, they can help amalgamate two existing clubs to form a new and vibrant club, or perhaps re-birth is a solution. A re-birth is where Rotary and your RDPC for m a new club by using the existing club as the nucleus. This new club has newer, younger members, but keeps the name, accreditation, the existing members and maybe some of the executive of the old club. It is a tried and true solution and has been shown that with a blend of experience and youthful enthusiasm, the old club gains a secure future. If you see a need or an opportunity, seek out your RDPC and see
