On behalf of myself and the entire management team, I want to welcome you to our club's website. Here you will find all you need to know about the club, its meetings, activities, trips and social events. These are all summarized below and more details can be found on the appropriate page.
I want to stress that this website is just a tool and does not replace good old-fashioned, human dialogue. Feel free to call myself or any member of the management team if you have any concerns, questions or suggestions . You can find our contact information on the Management Team page.
I look forward to seeing all of you at one of our many meetings and events.
Jim McMinn, President

A month ago we asked all members to complete a short survey to help us best figure out our reopening plans. Many thanks to the 138 who responded. Hopefully we will have more info on reopening shortly but in the meantime, if you want to see the results from that survey, click here.
Pickering Museum Village is running drive-thru tours every Friday this summer. The tour is about Pickering’s boom in the 1850s and takes about 30 minutes to complete. The tour is $20 per vehicle and offered throughout the day each Friday. Here is a video that shows a bit about the experience: https://www.facebook.com/pickeringmuse/videos/309683556868141/ .
