Only members can sign up for social & entertainment activities. Those attending PECProbus meetings as a guest cannot do so until the Membership Application Process is complete.
Activities are regularly recurring happenings, typically monthly ‘in season’. Events are irregular and often one-time happenings.
The ‘walking group’ meets at 10 am on Monday mornings at the LCBO parking lot. We walk by time–20 minutes one way and 20 minutes back. That way everyone can walk at their own speed but have company at the beginning and end. On Sunday evenings we send out a reminder and notice of location to people who have signed up for the group. The walk is followed by coffee and treats at the Agrarian store beside the LCBO.
Hiking, Snowshoe & Cross Country Ski Group
The Hiking Group does periodic hikes that last a couple of hours. Participants should be in fairly good shape as parts of these hikes can be strenuous. Hikes begin in October but once the snow flies the hikes become snowshoeing and cross-country ski outings.
Current Affairs Group
The Current Affairs group meets once a month at the Picton Yacht Club on the 2nd last Thursday from 10-11:30am.
Book Group #1
The Probus Book Group # 1 meets the second Friday of the month at the Piction Library from 12:30 to 2:00. A reading list has been set up until June 2020. Each member of the group has nominated one or two titles and will lead the discussion of those selections. Our titles are for the most part contemporary fiction.
Classic Book Group
The Classic Book Group meets the 2nd Tuesday each month, 1:00 pm, at the Picton library. As of 2020 it will be in the upstairs boardroom. The ‘classic’ book group is meant more for discussion than for study; so, if you’ve ‘seen a book’ on TV, DVD, or Netflix, ‘heard a book’ on audio, or read it years ago and want a re-read, join in by signing up at a general meeting.
The Bridge Group meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 1:00 pm at each member’s house.
Apps and Bevvies
For any members interested in networking in a small, more personal and casual environment, here is what “Apps and Bevvies” is all about. Once a month, (specifically on the 4th Wednesday), a Probus member volunteers to host a small social gathering of other Probus members in their home. This gathering is set up in a ‘pot luck’ format … click here for more information on this activity.
Pub night is held on the 3rd Thursday of every month. Location varies. TBA.
Activity Leaders contact information is available to members only.
