Upcoming Events:

April 30, 2013 - 25th Anniversary Celebration

Why Celebrate Our 25th?

Probus Clubs have been one of the fastest growing associations in recent years. They appear to satisfy a need for senior men and women to come
together in a spirit of community.
In the last 25 years, our club, one of the earliest formed in this area, has attracted many members to consistently maintain our membership at 140 members. We come together for fun, education and to make new associations. Our Management Committee has selected this time to reflect on our past achievements and great programs, as well to honour past leaders. As the designated organizational committee, we have set out with hopefully the help of every member to make this a fun event with participation from all members. At our February meeting, please purchase your ticket for a morning of fun that will finish with an open bar and a delicious lunch.

Location: Lutheran Village (parking at rear)
Date: April 30th, 2013 ( our regular meeting date)
Tickets:$20.00  ($30.00 after our March meeting)

Did you know that the inaugural meeting of the Kitchener – Westmount Probus Club was held at the Galt Country Club on April 26, 1988?
