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.

The much anticipated "Spring Fling" for 2017 is now in the past and from all reports, a good time was had by all.   As well as the speaker Terry Fallis, there was also a presentation by First Nations representative John MattsonJohn Watson - photo at right.  This included a demonstration of drumming and as he said, this is a common type of activity amongst a wide range of cultures.  He said that we relate to it because it's similar to the heart beat of our mothers that we heard before we were born.

There are a lot more photos and a video of the drumming here.
