A message from our President, Chris Cable

 

Dear reader there's no doubt that our PROBUS Club enriches our lives. Through Mountain View, many of us have made friendships that now continue outside of PROBUS. At our General Meetings, I hope that you will take the time to meet new people. Remember, PROBUS clubs are full of friends, some of whom you haven't met yet.

Chris
