President's Message

NOVEMBER:   "When the gray November weather came, it hung its soft dark clouds low and unbroken over the brown of the ploughed fields. The heavy stillness weighed my heart down to a forlorn yearning after the pleasant things of summer"....

November, the month before the celebration of Christmas and the end of the year.  November is an end and a beginning, in itself.   The end of the balmy days of summer and fall, and the harbinger of winter.   All the leaves are brown or gone! Evergreens are left, marching like the soldiers who died so long ago in foreign lands.

We have Remembrance.   We have fall fairs and winter markets, Christmas concerts, and events aplenty.  For PROBUS, it is another chance to meet new people, enjoy a wonderful speaker, Diane Dupuy, and enjoy the coming season.

Check out here on our website regularly for all the news and to sign up for activities and trips...use your membership as a resource.  You'll be glad you did!

Diane recharges batteries, has everyone reaching for excellence and she will inspire you with her story of perseverance and determination.   She has the power to amaze and the power to inspire!    Diane has a presentation that will have you laughing out loud and yes, moved to tears.    Everyone must hear her story of the Impossible Dream made POSSIBLE.   Diane Dupuy has changed laws and attitudes for people with DisABILITIES  and is applauded  worldwide for her motivational and energized presentations.

To hear Diane Dupuy speak will be a life altering experience and one you will remember forever.      She had everyone on the first word that came out of her mouth!   What a story teller!   The hour flew by so fast!  Everyone gave two standing ovations”   Samvhav conference New Delhi India
