PROBUS Considers a Second Club for Fenelon

Submitted by Paul Leduc

Due to the overwhelming success of the Fenelon Falls PROBUS Club, we are exploring opening a second club in the area to accommodate the additional people interested. An information meeting will be held at the Fenelon Falls Community Centre on October 31st at 2 pm.

PROBUS is an abbreviation for PROfessional BUSiness. A PROBUS Club is open to semi-retired & retired professional & business people but membership is not restricted to these groups. People with similar interests who wish to meet with like-minded individuals in their retirement years are welcome to the club.

Meetings:

Regular monthly meetings provide informative and stimulating speakers, a social time with refreshments, and a brief business meeting.

Social Events:

Social activities between meetings range from sporting events, live theatre, travel, visits to places of interest, to any other activity that the Social Committee wishes to organize. These are usually one time events- one per month generally.

Interest Groups:

Interest groups are small regular group activities for members only (sort of like a club within the club). Anyone with a particular Hobby or Interest can start an Interest Group. These groups vary in size from 6-30 (or more) depending on the activity and venue.

The club is non-political, non-sectarian, non-profit and non-fundraising. If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, please come out on October 31st for the informational meeting.
