The Valentine's Day Briars' Inn trip was enjoyed by all and you can view some photos in the Post in the Members Section below.
March is "PROBUS Month" and communities worldwide will be supporting this. Pickering is no exception and, after a recent presentation by Jim to the Mayor, the City of Pickering has announced that March is PROBUS Month and fill be fully supporting this in its meetings, communications and on its website.
Chartwell Residences have been an amazing supporter of our club so we are very pleased to add Cathy Mackrell, Business Development Manager for Chartwell , as an "Honorary Member". She will be at our March meeting so we can properly recognize their contributions.
A reminder about bringing guests to our various events and meetings:
Laura has been able to secure a repeat presentation by Chris DiCarlo. You all enjoyed Chris' talk about Ethics - "Good vs Evil" last year and at our July meeting this year he will be engaging us all again in a presentation about Critical Thinking in a Post-Truth World.
We are probably the only PROBUS club in Canada that does not have a Wine Tasting or Appreciation group!! There must be somebody out there who can lead such a group and you'll surely get lots of interest and support. Contact Lynne if you are willing and able to head up such an activity.
Vicki will be introducing a new format for our Newsletter next month. She would welcome your feedback/suggestions.
If you are interested in getting any lessons or tips about using this website, let Peter Green know. If there is enough interest he will organize a training session.
