Four hundred members of the Clubs of Ontario District 1, West, were at the 2019 Spring Escape on April 30th at the Trenton Air Force Ted BarrisMuseum. What a great venue! In between everything else, you could go on a tour of the Museum conducted by Harry Nash or just stroll around and view all the very interesting exhibits.

Afer a three course meal served to our tables, we were then treated to a talk by Ted Barris (picture at right) about the Canadian participation in the morale boostng Dam Busters raid into the heart of Nazi Germany. Ted was certainly an excellent speaker - and very animated. He did not use a dais but instead used a wireless lapel microphone and walked around the room.

Special Guest Speaker - Author Ted Barris 


On an invitation by District Director Jamie Doolittle, the President of Probus Canada, Bill Sexsmith, visited Northumberland Probus  Probus Canada Presidentat a regular meeting on September 28th. Other Northumberland clubs were invited and were well represented – many staying for a lunch afterwards.

Later in the day, Bill participated in an unveiling of a new sign added to the Cobourg gateway sign which listed all Cobourg’s “service” clubs. Although Probus is not a service club, it seemed appropriate to let visitors know that Probus is active in the Town. Visitors can find when there are meetings from this web site and would be welcomed as guests.

Photos right and below show Jamie, Bill and the Northumberland Probus team who helped get the Probus Logo on the sign.
