President's Message

December is a time of families and feasting. A time to enjoy the Season in whatever way feels comfortable. I know how lucky we are to be able to meet with such a great group of people that we have in PROBUS Pickering Lakeside. There has been a great slate of Speakers, some outstanding Trips and interesting Activities.

We are now moving into a new decade and new adventures await!  I want to send a BIG Thank You to all the organizers and conveners who supported the Club in this first year and the Management Committee who make all the activities, trips, and events happen.

We hope that everyone has a most enjoyable day at our Christmas Luncheon next week at Deer Creek.    

I am wishing you all....

A very Happy Holiday

Filled with

Peace, Hope, Laughter and Love!

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year - 2020!

Upcoming Activities

january's Speaker

Dr. Mike Daley holds a Ph.D in music from York University and is a musicologist, specializing in the history of popular music.   He has taught at Guelph, McMaster, Waterloo and York Universities;  he has toured the United States and Canada as a musician with Jeff Healey;  and also featured on dozens of recordings as a guitarist and singer.   Mike and his wife Jill live in Toronto and are presently leading music-themed tours to New York, Nashville/Memphis, London/Liverpool, St. John's and New Orleans. 

Mike will speak about Leonard Cohen's life and work, interspersing his narrative with classic Cohen songs.   

The popular image of Leonard Cohen, who died at age 82 in November 2016, is that of the bard with the brooding baritone voice plucking away at a guitar.  But for Mike, that deep, sometimes-morose voice has concealed the richness and variety of Cohen’s musical and lyrical abilities.  “In checking out his whole body of work… his songwriting style is much more varied than I thought.”

In this section of your website we will from time to time list non-Probus Community events that might be of interest to our members.   For example:


  • Pickering has an ongoing Aging Well Together Initiative with programs, classes and workshops throughout the year.    The City offers fitness, dance, arts, leisure, and special interest options that have been specifically designed, and priced to suit older adults.  View the details here.

  • There is a very active Pickleball Club that meets several times/week in various locations in Pickering and PROBUS members are more than welcome.   For more information contact Dave Werry.

Any local events you want to share?   Let us know


In addition to the 260 Canadian clubs and over 4,000 clubs worldwide. PROBUS also has a Global Club.

This is a great connection to the rest of the world for all PROBUS members.
