Upcoming Events:

April 30, 2013 - 25th Anniversary Celebration

The 25th Anniversary Committee has been hard at work. There are many things to highlight during this celebration. Established in1988, we were the 7th club chartered in Canada. This important milestone will be celebrated during an extended regular meeting in April.  It will be held next door at Luther Village. Ray Millard's committee has organized an interesting agenda with a local comic MC and local club talent. There will opportunities for members to participate with stimulating questions, old stories and new jokes. There will be displays of past Probus events, history, etc.  We would like any members who have items of memorabilia, newspaper items or artifacts that could be used in a display to loan them to us.  As well if you have slides or photos, we’d appreciate these for an audiovisual presentation.  If you have such material please contact Barry Noice at 519-954-6295,  All materials would be returned after the event.

Tickets will be on sale during our January, February and March meetings for the low price of $20 (includes lunch/cash bar/jokes). After our March meeting ticket price is $30.

Thanks to Dolf Bogad and Ken Macpherson for this months photos.
