Bruce Bell Tours is a unique guided walking tour of the St. Lawrence Market area in downtown Toronto. This is a walking tour, but apparently not too much walking. Please see link above for additional information about the tour. The Market tour will take approximately 90 minutes. We will then enjoy lunch at the HOTHOUSE restaurant.

Bruce likes to keep the groups to about 20 to be sure everyone is able to hear him speaking.

Registration will take place at the April and May general meetings, or you can contact Bev Waite at bev.waite@outlook.com or Lorna Smith at lsmith1@bell.net if you are interested.

Our first PROBUS social function of the year was a trip to Putting Edge in Whitby. There were 30 members who were eager to get out and socialize again. We had a great time challenging ourselves on the colourful mini putt course. A few cheers were heard as people scored those rare Hole in Ones!! (Overshadowed by the moans of those who just missed the hole)
