Lunch After the Meeting on July 25th

Lunch after the monthly meeting is a fun social affair which has become a much enjoyed event after each of the Club’s monthly meetings.

We are going to try  the newest restaurant in Fonthill – the HillFire SMK & BBQ on 1455 Pelham St (just south of Hwy 20) .  Check out the menu at www.hillfirebbq.ca.


The Program Committee

Your Program Committee continues to develop a most interesting and exciting program.

The speaker for our meeting on July 25th is Rick Meloen whose topic is: The Forts at the mouth of the Niagara River – an historical look at Fort Niagara, Fort George, Fort Mississauga and Butler’s Barracks.

Future speakers are continually under development !  Keep tuned, you won’t be disappointed.  For more about our speakers and the focus of their presentations click on Meetings.  


Another Dining Out Extravaganza !

Our 16th Dining Out event took place earlier in June and hosted a record-breaking number of PROBUS friends.  The food was delicious, the view overlooking the golf club was beautiful, and, judging by the level of conversation and laughter, a good time was had by all!

Visit the Dining Out page for more info.

PROBUS Cycling Group – A Dynamic Growing Group !

Although missing our ride coordinator Dave Hunt, after a two week delay due to weather,  12 cyclists enjoyed cloudless skies and blossoming trees on a spectacular spring day along the Welland Canal Trail.  Lunch was enjoyed at a perennial favourite, the Flying Squirrel in Pt. Colborne. It was great to re-connect on the bikes after a long winter.  Shout out to Lorna Whitfield for her cheerful leadership and advance preparation.
