A message from our President, David Heaslip

 

 

I think November is the most sombre month of the year. It sees the passing of fall warmth and colours and the arrival of grey skies and much cooler weather. It is notice that winter will soon follow. It is the proverbial shoulder month.


November is a time for remembrance of those who lost their lives protecting the freedom and quality of life we enjoy and maybe too often take for granted. I find November is often a time for personal reflection. 


November is also a month of energized preparation for winter and for the pleasures of the coming holiday season. November is a harbinger of good things to come!

Best wishes! Have fun! 
David Heaslip

President

Dear fellow Probus Mountain View members. It is with great sadness I inform you our good friend and former president Doug Wilson passed away this morning at the Campbell House hospice.
