President's Message
 

Hello Everyone: 

 

Well it is the end of two very successful years for Robert, as the President of our PROBUS club,leading the club with all its variety of both enlightening speakers and fun social activities. Read his final message as he prepares for this year's AGM and to welcome the new management team lead by Don Dempson. ...Read More

 

The AGM brings in a time of change and new beginnings. This is my 12th newsletter and my last as we are excitedly expecting our first grandchild this Spring. It will mean numerous flights to the Netherlands in our future.  I have enjoyed sharing the PROBUS news with you each month. All the best, Pam Foster

Men's Pub Lunch                                           

     

Gentlemen:

 The Men's Pub Lunch has met the Tuesday after the General Meeting at the Nanoose Community Centre at 11:30am to carpool to a different pub each month.  It has lapsed over the past few months, due to the lack of an organizer or two.  All you need to do to get this social lunch going again is to choose a pub and let the communications chair know. That's it and of course, have a great time!
