April Members Monthly Meeting

  • 19 Apr 2023
  • 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Chestnut Hill Recreation Centre, 1867 Valley Farm Road, Pickering


Registration is closed

The Club's monthly meetings are a key part of the PROBUS experience. They allow the Management Committee to provide updates, and they enable all members to catch up with friends (old and new), discuss upcoming events and activities and to generally participate in the ongoing development of the club.   Our monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 10:00 a.m. to noon and there is a $2.00 charge for attending the meeting which helps cover the meeting expenses.  Coffee will be served and members are encouraged to bring their own mugs.

Lakeside meetings always feature a guest speaker and this month will be no exception:    The Mayor of Oshawa, Dan Carter, will be joining us - but he will not be talking about Oshawa.  

Dan experienced some major challenges as a child and as a result he fell into drug and alcohol addiction and was homeless for most of his late teens and 20s. 

Dan managed to overcome this and went on to enjoy a successful career in broadcasting including being the Executive Producer of programming for CHEX TV Durham.   He took up politics in 2014 and became Mayor in 2018.     

Dan’s background has also enabled him to become an exceptional motivational speaker on topics including leadership, the challenges of living in poverty, mental health and addiction.    

He will share more of his incredible story with us at this meeting and I’m sure it will be truly inspirational.

This meeting will be in Chestnut Hill Recreation Centre and you should plan to arrive in plenty of time as parking is often a challenge at the Complex.

We have booked some tables at Perkins restaurant for anybody who wants to join us for a luncheon afterwards (at your expense).
