                          Report - Royal Botanical Gardens Tour

                                                  June 1, 2022


The RBG tour was attended by 12 in total, although 10 others could not attend due to issues that arose the day before.
The rain held off and made for a good day at the rock gardens. The tour directors pointed out the history of the site and
the many trees and shrubs that are not found elsewhere in Ontario. After, people were free to visit other areas of the
garden site.










Volunteer Appreciation for 2022

On October 18th most of the volunteers who help run our club got together at the Craftsman to be thanked for their efforts. The club wouldn't work without the dedication of our volunteers
On November 10th, several couples from Applewood Probus Club enjoyed a day in the St. Jacob's area with the highlight being a performance of the critically acclaimed musical, "Mamma Mia", as performed by a spirited cast from Drayton Entertainment.  Drayton Entertainment offers topline productions at six different theatres around southwestern Ontario...and in this production, they did not disappoint!
 
Some of our group arrived in the area early enough to enjoy the offerings of the Outlet Mall and the famous St. Jacob's Farmers' Market. Four couples made arrangements to have lunch in Kitchener, and six couples had lunch at Harvest Moon Restaurant, just 5 minutes from the theatre. In total, 13 couples committed to see the musical.
 
The general consensus was that this production of Mamma Mia was wonderful...some people commenting that it was the best stage production of Mamma Mia that they had seen! Energetic cast, professional singers and amusing costumes left everyone uplifted for the ride home. To top it off, we could not have had a more beautiful day to enjoy our drive through this farm rich part of the province...a great day was had by all!
Past Presidents Luncheon - December 7, 2022
      Christmas Lunch at the Glenerin Inn
 
It was December 8 when 40 members and guests celebrated Christmas at the historic Glenerin Inn.  Good fellowship was celebrated before the lunch was served.  After the lunch, John Mark played Santa Claus in picking the winners of the gift certificates and the 50:50 draw where Marcus Miller was the lucky winner. 

A good occasion for all who were there.
