The ESCARPMENT PROBUS met on March 15th, 2017 at Milton Memorial Arena on Thompson Road in Milton to celebrate National PROBUS month in Canada. Mayor Gordon Krantz was invited to be an honored guest at the event.
The Vigil of February 4th 2017 in memory of the massacre of 6 Canadians in Quebec the week before, was moved from outside in the icy cold into the warmth of the Town Hall. It had been very successfully organised by Sameera Ali, Mike Cluett and Zeeshan Hamid. It was attended by 400-500 people.
The Milton Centre for the Arts seemed at first to be an elaborate movie set for some lavish Hollywood event: then gradually Miltonians were brought back to earth with hugs, chats and laughter amongst the familiar crowd. They had gathered together in honour of their beloved Mayor Gord Krantz.
