President’s Message June 2018

Did you know? Probus is a civil parish and village in Cornwall, England. It has a population of 1,827. It is famous for having the tallest church tower in Cornwall. The tower is 129 feet high, and richly decorated with carvings. I’m wondering if any member has ever been to Probus?

June is blooming all around us. Golfers, hikers, bikers, walkers and gardeners are active around this beautiful part of the island. Many of our members will be joining me on the upcoming Up Island Out & About Day Trip, June 25. We have two seats left. If anyone would like to join us, please email me at

Many of our walkers and other interested members will be hiking on Newcastle Island on Wednesday, June 27. A golf Nine & Dine has been arranged for June 23. Our Probus Club affords us so many wonderful opportunities to keep active and involved.

I look forward to seeing you at our monthly meeting on Thursday, June 28. Tickets for the annual August BBQ will be on sale @ $12 for members and $17 for non-members.

Joan Honig
President, Lantzville Probus
