July 25th David Jeanes
Lisgar at 175

As part of Lisgar’s 175th anniversary celebrations, David Jeanes took on the role of a goodwill ambassador and guide. He conducted guided tours of the school and he will be our guide through the history of the school.

Lisgar was founded in 1843 as the Dalhousie District Grammar School. After a period as Ottawa Collegiate Institute it was renamed as Lisgar Collegiate Institute - in honour of Sir John Young, Lord Lisgar.

David is not new to Probus. In 2008, he was our August speaker on Transportation for Ottawa. After a career at Bell-Northern Research and Nortel, David pursued his interest in transportation as president of Transport Action, (formerly Transport 2000), and is a strong advocate for light rail in Ottawa. He is currently president of Heritage Ottawa, advocating for the conservation of our built heritage.


August 22nd - In-house Speakers
Four Mysteries and a Picnic

Colin Galigan has lined up a star-studded panel of in-house speakers but refuses to disclose their topics. All we can tell you is that the cast will be Barbara Wilson, Bob Mady, Hugh Reekie and Merle Brown.

We are going to swap caterers between Summer and December! Up ‘til now the summer picnic has had outside catering and we have asked you to bring goodies for the Christmas Party. This year we are asking you to bring summer snacks and the Christmas Party will be catered.

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.
