Given that this October will be our Club’s 30th Anniversary, Richard Rood, has accepted the daunting task of building an archive for our Club. If you have any photos, memorabilia or other items that would be of interest and not get us arrested, he would love to hear from you.

We now have a team of highly skilled volunteers, trained in the operation of the Automated External Defibrillator.

Richard Rood, Peter Korbelas, Al Wallace, Steve Hawker, Bob Mills and Paul Natale.

Should you decide to have the ’big one’ at our meeting, these Angels of Mercy will bring you back from the brink.

They’re back....It’s time to go to the grandchildren’s piggy bank or your partner’s purse and dig out $55, only $5 per month! This small increase is a reflection of the increase in our operating expenses. A small price for a years entertainment! Remember, you can now pay with your credit card or by cheque.

RE: notice of open enrolment for ProbUs extended health care with “Prestige” TRAVEL PLAN:  September 1, 2017 – October 31, 2017.

For PROBUS Canada members in good standing, there is an open enrolment period from September 1, 2017 to October 31, 2017 for Extended Health Care (EHC) with Prestige Travel Plan (out-of-province/out-of-country emergency medical travel and trip cancellation insurance).  During the open enrolment period, PROBUS members can apply for EHC with Prestige Travel Plan coverage without providing evidence of good health.

Following the open enrolment period, after October 31st, PROBUS members can still apply for coverage, but only members leaving an existing group health insurance plan can enroll without providing evidence of insurability within 60 days of losing coverage.

Additional information is available on Johnson Inc.’s website at
