Member call for club

Matlock Probus Club is calling for new members.

The club welcomed the newly-appointed chairman for the year, Keith Garton, and he was congratulated by the outgoing chairman, George Mabon.

Club members are posting fliers across the area to call for new members.

The club is an association for retired and semi-retired men and women. The word Probus is an abbreviation of the words Professional and Business, however membership is not restricted to these two groups. It embraces any person who has had some measure of responsibility in any field of endeavour.

The Matlock Club was formed in October, 1969. The group meets on the first Thursday of the month at The Duke William pub, in Starkholmes, where members enjoy lunch followed by a speaker.

Topics vary from power-point presentations to off-the-cuff intimate snap-shots of life.
