No Personal Profile this month, but it is gardening season, so perhaps these will help you smile while you rest your back.

30 May: Gananoque 1000 Island Play-house production of The Ballad of Stompin’ Tom. For those signed up, the bus leaves the Legion at 10 a.m. sharp.
June 25, 2007: The Annual Probus Golf Tournament, organized this year by Dale Nugent. Golfers (experienced and otherwise), mark your calendars and sign up with Dale! Golf begins at 3:00 p.m. Eaters are also very welcome to join the athletes for dinner at 6:00 p.m. This is always a good party so come on out and have some summer fun.
10-12 October: Shaw Festival. This trip is cancelled due to lack of interest. This applies also to the Stratford Festival trip mentioned in the last newsletter. Probians seem to have lost their interest in these theatre outings. All such trips have been wildly successful in the past. What’s happened? Tell us about it!
Denise is still investigating a customized mini-vacation to Estrimont in Magog, Quebec for next season.
