GENERAL MEETING: Dec.2nd              Holiday Get-Together

It's time once again to dig out those tacky Christmas sweaters and holiday ties!
We hope to see as many of you as possible for our Christmas/Holiday Social Meeting.
 No speaker this month but there will be lots of goodies and Christmas cheer. Also,
 expect a few little challenges. Mostly, it's a chance for us to get together with Probus friends
 and begin celebrating The Season!

PS: If you plan to attend the Probus Christmas Party on Dec.7th,
and have not yet paid, please bring your cheque to the meeting or contact Kim
 at kcr@telus.net to make arrangements.         
PROBUS ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARTY - December 7th

'Tis the Season!  If you haven't already done so, be sure to sign
 up for this grand Annual Event. It's a time to dress up and get
together with Probus friends to enjoy an elegant Christmas 2008 buffet and a very special evening.  And, yes, guests are welcome!

November 6th Speaker: Nestor Gayowsky  Ukraine since 2014 

 Nestor Gayowsky spoke to a packed house on the topic of establishing
democracy in Ukraine and what has transpired there since the 2014 revolution.
