A message from our President, Chris Cable

 

Here we grow again!  Just over two years ago, we took our ever-expanding wait list and helped to launch a new club – Probus Lighthouse….and now we’re doing it again. With almost 100 people on our current wait list, we have decided the time is right to launch yet another new Probus Club in Collingwood. Everyone on our current wait list will be invited to attend an information session and, if successful, we will have launched two new Probus Clubs in our own short six-year history. 

Hope that you are planning to enjoy all the fall events organized for us. I look forward to seeing everyone at our next club meeting. reader I hope you have made a note that it is on October 19th, NOT October 12!!


 

Chris

Upcoming Keynote Speakers

What an interesting Speaker we had at the September meeting Larisa Yurkiw! And didn't Mark Hord do a fantastic job of interviewing her? He led the conversation into many different areas and let her story come out in a very interesting way. We found out a lot more about what it takes to be a world-class athlete. (As an aside: look for an upcoming movie just released at TIFF: Molly's Game with Jessica Chastain. Very similar back story to Larisa, but lets just say, different outcome. And a true story too!)

 

That's just the start of what the Speaker Team has prepared for us. The next two month's have equally interesting speakers. Be sure to come out to meetings and STAY FOR THE SPEAKER. You'll be glad you did.
