The last event of the Port Hope Probus club will be their Christmas lunch on December 16, 2019 - members are saying that "it is time". Alan ButlerAlan Butler In a message from President Alan Butler in the October newsletter, Alan said:

"…Most of all I treasure the friendships made over the years, and I encourage you all to keep in touch, for example by arranging lunch groups or similar get togethers where you can socialize. I should mention that a welcome awaits any of you who would like to join the Ganaraska Probus Club that meets at the Town Park Recreation Centre on the second and fourth Thursdays each month.

Don't forget that Erik is setting out the Club's collection of photographs at each of the next three meetings so feel free to take the ones you want."

The club was founded in June 1998.


Four hundred members of the Clubs of Ontario District 1, West, were at the 2019 Spring Escape on April 30th at the Trenton Air Force Ted BarrisMuseum. What a great venue! In between everything else, you could go on a tour of the Museum conducted by Harry Nash or just stroll around and view all the very interesting exhibits.

Afer a three course meal served to our tables, we were then treated to a talk by Ted Barris (picture at right) about the Canadian participation in the morale boostng Dam Busters raid into the heart of Nazi Germany. Ted was certainly an excellent speaker - and very animated. He did not use a dais but instead used a wireless lapel microphone and walked around the room.
