Message from the President

As I commented in the last PROBUS Blue Mountain Club Newsletter, your Management Team has been hard at work with planning and looking forward to when we can get back to our meetings at the Legion. For the time being we will continue to organize our meetings by Zoom on a monthly basis so we can stay in touch and still see each other’s faces.

It is with regret that I have received Stewart Carter’s resignation after seven years in the Support and Compassionate Care position on the Management Committee. We welcome Larry Gee into that role. Also, I am pleased to announce that Ron Mitchell has stepped into the Vice President Elect position and that Dave Dicks is our new Events Co-ordinator.

See you at our next meeting; Thursday, March 18th @ 10:00 a.m.

Eddie Sokoloff, President PROBUS Blue Mountain
