Upcoming Events:

Oct. 4 – Fall Tour

Mark this date on your calendar. A tour is being planned to The Six Nations Reservation and War of 1812 sites.  This is especially timely given this is the bi-centennial of The War of 1812.  More details and tickets will be available at the June meeting but it is expected the price will be similar to last year ($60 including lunch).  Let’s have a great turnout for this event.  These tours are also a great time to socialize with your fellow Probians.

October 23 – Annual Probus Car Rally

The 12th Annual Probus car rally will take place Oct. 23. It will start early in the afternoon and will take about 2 hours of driving. As in previous years, there will be a refreshment break about midway through the rally and dinner at the end. The price per participant will be $40.00, which will cover the costs for the refreshment break and dinner. 

Tickets for the rally may be purchased at the September Probus meeting. Payment by cheque would be preferable. Further details will be provided as necessary.

December 12 – Christmas Luncheon.

This popular event will once again be held at St. George's Banquet Hall. If you have ideas for entertainment please let Don Blain (539-664-0220) or Bruce Hannah (519-741-7377) know.
