February 24th - Kerry-Leigh Burchill, Agriculture and Food Museum

Kerry-Leigh Burchill is the Director General of the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum at the Experimental Farm. For the last 21 years Ms Burchill has worked for the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation in the areas of policy, strategic planning, internal communications, corporate development and commercial operations.
Her talk will be on the museum and its current focus on food literacy to promote a better understanding of the production, processing, preserving and distribution of food as it relates to food safety, nutrition, environmental sustainability and food security.
Possibly she will mention the 120 domesticated animals at the farm.


March 27th - TBA

We are a 'Combined' Club. We meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month (except December - 2nd Wednesday). Meetings begin at 10:00 with a few minutes of announcements and then a speaker. Members start to arrive about 9:30 for coffee, cookies and chat (tea, Tim-bits and talk).

Meetings are at:

Gloucester Presbyterian Church
91 Pike Street

Pike Street runs north from Hunt Club just west of Conroy. The church is at the corner of Lorry Greenberg and Pike. Parking lot entrances are off Pike.

PROBUS' Vital Purpose …

... to stimulate thought, interest and participation in activities at a time in life when it is easy to become complacent and self-centred.

Guests and Visitors from other Clubs are welcome.
