Time to celebrate
Welcome to the new year. I am delighted
to formally announce the winner of the
Paul Henningham Award for Literar y
Excellence: Ron Armstrong from the
Probus Club of Kurranulla, NSW for his
tribute to ‘Dancin’ Nancy Brown’. Please
visit the Probus website’s Hall of Fame
section for more details or read more
about the presentation to Ron on page 10.
Congratulations to our six National
Photographic Competition finalists who
will join sponsors Cruise Traveller, Grand
Pacific Tours, Trade Travel and Golden
Chain Motor Inns for a celebrator y dinner
where we will announce the winner of the
competition later this month.
The theme for the competition was
‘ Capture the moment’. Some great entries
were received, and winners’ details will
be announced in the next issue of the
magazine and on the Probus website.
Congratulations also to the new
management committees who will
lead their Probus clubs in 2014-15. I
encourage you to attend upcoming PSP
Information Days; these days provide a
wealth of knowledge and ideas to assist
all office bearers in their roles, as well as
a chance to network with other clubs.
The Probus Travel Insurance has been
renewed and is available to Probus club
members and their guests on personal
and club travel. The cover remains
the same and includes a pre-existing
conditions waiver, cover for travellers
days’ cover. Members need their Probus
Membership numbers to complete the
application form, and can contact PSP for
a quote. Documentation is also available
on the Probus website. Contact PSP for
full terms and conditions.
All Probus club members should have
received their Passport to Probus. I trust
the booklet will assist and guide you in
enjoying the full benefits offered through
your Probus club membership.
The PSP December mail out included
the annual capitation forms, Active
Retirees magazine subscription form and
advice on the fee structure for 2014-15;
please ensure these are completed and
returned with payment to PSP following
your AGM. Also enclosed was the
2KSYDNEY14 Probus Rendezvous flyer;
mark these dates in your diary and start
planning your trip now for 18-22 August.

The PSP Board is pleased to welcome
three new Directors for three-year terms,
commencing June 2014. All are Probus
members who have been selected for their
knowledge, expertise and commitment to
Probus. We welcome two representatives
from the Rotary Council of Governors.
It's great to see new Probus clubs
being formed by our partners in Rotary,
extending the hand of friendship and
providing new avenues of fellowship.
Don’t keep these new friends waiting on
lists – get in touch with your RDPC to
talk about forming new Probus clubs.
There are congratulations all round to winners of Probus awards, new
committee members and new Directors, as well as exciting news about
a Christmas in July Probus Getaway.
