Editor's Note:

Thanks to Dolf Bogad for continuing to provide great photos. Also thanks to Don Grant for his continued support to me as editor.

Special Interest Groups:

The purpose of a Probus Club is defined as providing an opportunity for members to maintain contact with friends and make new friends.

Many clubs help achieve this by providing opportunities for members to meet in small groups. An example of this, in our club, is the current Book Club.

The Management Committee believes there may be an opportunity for us to form other such groups. Some examples of possible groups are:

  • Investments

  • Bridge

  • Computer

  • Outdoor Activities

  • Golf

  • Billiards

The possibilities are almost endless.

Those with an interest in forming such groups are invited to stay for a few minutes after the Nov. 30 meeting to discuss the idea. After this input the Management Committee will have further discussion on the best way to proceed.
