    Our Next Speaker

    Our Speaker for July will be the Pickering Mayor, Kevin Ashe.   

    Mayor Ashe has been a resident of Pickering for over 55 years and comes from a family deeply rooted in local politics and community service.  His late father, George Ashe, served as the first Mayor of the then Town of Pickering in 1973;  paving the way for Kevin’s own civic career.  Mayor Ashe was first elected as Ward 1 City Councilor in 2003 and was elected Mayor in 2022.

    Mayor Ashe’s vision for Pickering is ambitious yet grounded, striving to harness Pickering’s potential for positive and progressive growth, fostering vibrancy, connectivity, and sustainability. Central to this vision is promoting Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, and nurturing a compassionate and thriving community.    

    At our meeting, Mayor Ashe will be presenting important updates regarding ongoing initiatives and developments happening in the City  His aim at meetings like these is to  keep residents informed and encourage community engagement.   His informative session will be followed by a Q&A session, allowing you to ask questions and share your feedback.

    Thanks Laura

    Activities

    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.  

    Events

    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.
