PROBUS Pickering Lakeside is a proud part of a worldwide organization whose motto is Fellowship, Friendship and Fun. We believe that retirement is the time to reinvent yourself and do the things you never had time for when you were working. We strive to ensure our members can truly say - Retired and Loving It! So scroll through our website to discover what's happening and all the activities our wonderful volunteers have planned and organized for our members.

Thanks to all our members who came out for our January members meeting and AGM and helped us celebrate our 5th Anniversary. The Mayor presented us with a Certificate of Recognition and the Probus Canada presented the club with a 5 year Anniversary certificate. The AGM minutes are available here.
For March only, we will hold our Meeting on the 1st Wednesday of the month instead of our usual slot of the 2nd Wednesday. This is so that we do not clash with the March Break when the salons will be used for various children's programs.

Finally the days are getting longer which means spring is that much closer and we spring forward an hour in March. You can spend that extra time catching up on your Probus News. Our February edition of our Newsletter will get you caught up on all of our activities - we hope you enjoy it, click here. Don't forget our Newsletter will take a month off in March as many of our volunteers are on vacation, much deserved. Our next edition will be our April edition!!
Our Next Speaker
Our March Speaker will be Senior Constable Darryl Rice from the Crime Prevention Unit of the Durham Regional Police Force. Constable Rice will be talking about current and ongoing frauds and scams and how to spot and deal with them along with various other crime prevention tips. Such is the importance of this topic and such is the wealth of knowledge and experience Darryl brings to it, we have allocated 90 mins for his presentation. So for March only we will have a very brief (10 mins) business meeting starting at 10:00 am followed by a 20 min coffee break and then Constable Rice will start promptly at 10:30 am. You won't want to miss this!

One of the many benefits of membership is access to regularly scheduled gatherings of club members who share common interests. Some Activities are seasonal, while others run throughout the year.
Providing a variety of activities gives members an opportunity to get to know each other better while doing something that they enjoy. We currently have over a dozen such groups in our club, like euchre, weekly group walks, book and movie clubs, golf, trivia and much more.
Our members enjoy a variety of social events. Some local events include going to theatres and tourist attractions and visiting local restaurants for lunch or dinner. We educate as well as entertain by providing trips to museums, historic sites and tours of local businesses and industries. We come together annually to celebrate special times together like summer BBQ's and Holidays. These special events require advance registration and payment.
On this page you can also see details of multi-day trips and vacations organized especially for PROBUS Members through HNA Travel by Lakeside member Shirlie van Puttin.
