My Mother the Bull Fighter
Here is club member Pat Baldwin’s story about her mother’s rather unique adventure.
When my parents were first married after WWII, it was hard to find employment for my father, a new Mining Engineer graduate. In the quest for work, my father ended up as a mine supervisor in a small town in Peru.
"I've enjoyed spending the autumn at the cottage for more than 50 years. The red and gold leaves are beautiful, and various family members walk the cottage roads enjoying the company, while we share apples and Kraft caramels. This is topped off with a Turkey dinner and all the trimmings. Life is good!"

Cooper the Therapy Dog
Okay, so Cooper isn’t technically a member of our PROBUS club, but his ‘person’, Barb Sinclair, is our House Chair, looking after the coffee and other refreshments for our in-person meetings.
Since we haven’t had refreshments for some time, Cooper makes a more interesting bio.
