Welcome

We welcome all to the spring portion of our speakers program!

The Probus Club of Western Ottawa is part of the international organization of Probus Clubs
designed to serve the retired and semi-retired community.

Our club meets on the second Tuesday of each month except during July and August.

The morning begins at 10:00 a.m. for socialization and signing up for activities followed by a speaker.

Topics are varied, interesting and stimulating.

Special social events occur throughout the year.

Western Ottawa Probus meets at
the Kanata United Church, 33 Leacock Drive.

Visitors are welcome!
