Bridge Group

Our bridge club is a friendly group of PROBUS members who meet in individual homes the first and third Tuesday evening of each month. We play social bridge and enjoy coffee and a few goodies too.

We welcome new members! (and for people with busy schedules - do consider adding your name to our active spare list). Though our picture appears to be about females, we do love to have the gents come too. It really is fun.😀

Camera Club

The Camera Club meets once a month where we watch a lesson from the National Geographic Fundamentals of Photography and then share photos and ideas. 

Basically a social group with shared interest in improving the photos we take. 

Skill improving projects will be assigned and occasional field trips to capture nature.

Quilting Group

The Quilting Group gets together on the third Tuesday of each month. The meetings are held in members' homes, rotating through the group. At each gathering there is a 'show and tell' during which members exhibit their latest creations and discuss techniques and practices.

​Following the 'show and tell' light refreshments are served and the group socializes.

Reading Group

The Orca Probus Reading group meets monthly in the morning of the last Friday of the month. Members take turns home hosting with light goodies and leading the discussion on our current book. Book selections are made with input and suggestions from within the group. We welcome diversity in our book selection in order to reach beyond what individual members might normally choose to read. When possible we take advantage of the local library service and willingly share copies between ourselves.

The group currently consists of twelve ladies and includes a few “friends” of Orca PROBUS members.

​New members would be welcomed.


Singing Group

PROBUS Singers and Friends

We are not a Choir, but an informal group of singers who love to sing!

Three guitar players who bring a lot of fun to the evening’s gathering, lead our singing. We sing vintage songs from the 50’s to the 80’s: Rock & Roll to Country, Western, Blues, Folk, and many Popular songs of that time period.

We meet in a private home the last Wednesday of the month, at 2:00 pm. from October – May.

It is a fun, uplifting evening for those who attend - all who love music are welcome!
