The club meets on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 10.15 in The Royal British Legion Club, Station Road, Ellon AB41 9AY. The formation of a Probus Club in Ellon resulted from a meeting of like-minded retired gentlemen held on 17th August 1981. A sub group, comprising Alexander Wilson, John McLeod and Rev Matthew Rodger, was formed and the club had its first meeting at the New Inn, Ellon in October 1981. The Club then had 28 members and its first President was Sandy Wilson.
