On Wednesday April 17 we celebrated the 6th annual National Canadian Film Day by viewing the award winning documentary, Come From Away.
Between 60 and 70 Probus members, their spouses and friends gathered together at the Woodstock Curling Centre to view this documentary which told the story of how the people of Gander and area in Newfoundland and Labrador hosted several thousand people whose flights were diverted to Gander as a result of the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001.
Many thanks to Bob Axon who arranged to have this outstanding film shown and to John Carley, the projectionist.
Next Meeting is May 14th at 8:30 am
