Welcome

A word from the President

.
President Rick Moynes says “the PROBUS Club of Prince Edward County continues to be of interest to many people. While strictly following the provincial guidelines for gatherings during the pandemic, we’re still able to enjoy some of our activities. Some activities have moved online with Zoom … book groups, current affairs group, travel group, monthly general meeting with guest speakers etc. while others … cycling, hiking, walking, kayaking etc. … are taking place outdoors as weather permits. As our number of members continues to grow, so does the list of social activities. Discussion about new interest groups forming is ongoing. Contact countyprobus@gmail.com to find out more about being part of this dynamic club.
