As a retiree, do you find yourself in a rut? Watching too much television? Not socializing as much as you did when you were working? If so, it may be time for you to make a change to your routine, to give your retirement a boost. Consider joining a Probus Club as it provides regular gatherings for those who, in retirement, appreciate and value opportunities to meet others in similar circumstances and similar interests. As well, they stimulate thought, interest and participation in activities at a time in life when it is easy to become complacent. Clubs generally meet once a month in the morning to enjoy relaxed social time with tea or coffee, retain and renew old friendships, make new friends and listen to an interesting guest speaker. Some clubs arrange lunch following the meeting which provides an opportunity to engage in conversations with club members. Between monthly meetings, club members may visit local sites of interest. As well, members may participate in interest group activities.
The list of activities differs from each club and is based on the preferences of club members. Once again, these member group interest activities provide club members with a chance to develop friendships. By joining a Probus Club you will find a wealth of new experiences and an expanded social network thereby giving your retirement years a boost. The following are the email addresses for the Halifax, Dartmouth and Cobequid (Sackville and Bedford areas) clubs: probusclubhlfx@gmail. com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com Once you join a Probus Club, you are eligible for a free membership to Probus Canada (ww.probuscanada.ca) and Probus Global (www.probus.org).
