July 26th In-house Speakers
In-house catered 'Picnic'

Our speaker finder, Colin Galligan is holding back on the topics for our in-house talks. All we have found out so far is that three of the speakers will be Austin Timmins, Lenore Porter and Merle Brown. By the time you read this, a fourth may have been added by suasion (AKA arm-twisting).

So far, Colin has delivered some interesting speakers, so we can look forward to his in-house finds.

As is customary for our Summer meet, talks will be followed by a catered 'picnic'.


August 23rd - Danielle McDonald
Ottawa Public Library

Danielle is the CEO of the Ottawa Public Library. As such, she is front and centre on the development of a new Central Library for Ottawa. This will be our opportunity to get the “Inside” story on a variety of aspects of the facility – the vision, the potential partnership, and what we can expect in terms of programs, services, and spaces.

Since joining the Library in January 2009 from the City of Ottawa, Danielle has led significant initiatives in library facilities planning and development, including the delivery of $15.75M in renovations and new onstruction. An MA (Public Administration) from Carleton complemented her Bachelor of Environmental Studies from Waterloo.

What is “inside” a modern library? We will soon be in the know!

Guests and Visitors from other Clubs are welcome.

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.
