Hello Everyone:


As I prepared this month's newsletter, I realized how vital and current our club really is to all members.  We exemplify the key values of Learning, Involvement, Friends and Energy.  Be sure to attend the April 10th meeting, learn the latest information on vaccines, connect with friends returning from far and wide, and check out the not to be missed, exciting social events coming up. Expand your horizons and get the latest news about connecting with other PROBUS clubs in Western Canada.  Let's celebrate Spring and being PROBUS club members!  Pam
