February 22nd, Rachael Jones
Waste Management Plan for Ottawa

Rachael Jones has worked in solid waste management for more than 10 years, including 7 years experience working in this sector within a municipality in Metro Vancouver. Her experience in solid waste management is broad; from developing and implementing new policies and programs in support of waste reduction and diversion efforts to managing both collection and processing contracts.

As a Project Manager in Solid Waste Services at the City of Ottawa she transitioned to focusing on longer-term waste management planning. She is currently the Project Manager for the City of Ottawa's 30-year Solid Waste Master Plan that is currently being developed and, while being the technical lead for the project, she is also very involved in designing and delivering the public engagement strategy for the project and ensuring community feedback informs development of the plan.

March 22nd, Dr Indu Gambhir
Doctors Without Borders

Dr. Gambhir will give us an insight into the work done by Doctors Without Borders in places where there is little or no organized health care and where there is the ever-present danger of finding oneself in the middle of a war zone. This is Sudan.
Work means dealing with infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, sleeping sickness and HIV/AIDS and at the same time meeting the challenge of providing general health information to the population.

Check out "The Social" page for other activities - walks, visits, etc.

Guests and Visitors from other Clubs are welcome.

We are a 'Combined' Club. We meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month (except December - 2nd Wednesday). Meetings begin at 10:00 with a few minutes of announcements and then a speaker. Members start to arrive about 9:30 for coffee, cookies and chat (tea, Tim-bits and talk).

Meetings are at:

Gloucester Presbyterian Church

Pike Street runs north from Hunt Club just west of Conroy. The church is at the corner of Lorry Greenberg and Pike. The parking lot entrance is off Pike.


 PROBUS' Vital Purpose

... to stimulate thought, interest and participation in activities at a time in life when it is easy to become complacent and self-centred.
