President’s Message April, 2018

“Do not open your hives and peek at your bees until the dandelions bloom.” “Do not prune the roses until the forsythia blooms.” There are so many rules for spring. The dandelions and forsythia are blooming but the incessant rains have dampened springtime activity. The golfers, hikers, walkers and bikers among us are longing for dry, warmer days. I am confident our returning snowbirds are bringing warmer, drier weather with them. Welcome home.

March was National Probus Month and our club celebrated with an Annual Pancake Breakfast at our March meeting. Thank you to all the volunteers and organizer Barry Chapman for a very enjoyable and tasty pancake breakfast. The Canadiana Quiz taxed our water-weary brains but made for lots of camaraderie.

April may be tax month but at the Probus Club of Lantzville we know how to turn April into a fun month. The Spring Luncheon will be held Tuesday, April 24, 2018  at Fairwinds Golf Course. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m. followed by lunch at 12:30. Our regular monthly meeting will be held Thursday, April 26, 2018. I am looking forward to both events.
