UPCOMING EVENTS

After a busy Holiday Season it seems that most people are in the midst of organizing activities for the New Year. Thus we have a limited number of items and activities to report on.

ITEMS of INTEREST

The Probus Club website is a good place to go for general updates and information on all the different groups and their activities.

CHRISTMAS LUNCHEON

The Christmas Luncheon was held at the Bear Estate on Thursday, December 12. It was a sold out event and thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. Entertainment was provided by the Rhythmix Quartet, a local group who entertained us with Seasonal songs. Here they are in action in the picture below.

Congratulations to Bill Patrick and his crew for organizing such a happy event.

INVESTMENT GROUP

At the December meeting of the Investment Group, they had a very intriguing presentation on Philanthropy. You can view the presentation on the attachment below: www.torontofoundation.ca There will be no Investment Group Meeting in January. The group will reconvene on February 11, 2020 at the Library. The topic will be “Tax and Estate Planning Strategies”. For more information about this upcoming presentation please contact Bob Sanelli at Email: bsanelli@bell.net
