An Important Message from the Escarpment PROBUS Management Committee about COVID Vaccinations

Most of us have been fully vaccinated and while there are no immediate plans to hold a hybrid general meeting, we do have Social Clubs and Activities resuming.  As you are aware, our club adheres to any provincial restrictions and recommendations regarding COVID.  To ensure the safety of all of us - especially immunocompromised friends and family - and all unvaccinated children, we request that any member participating in an in-person PROBUS Meeting, Social Club or Activity be fully vaccinated.  If you are not fully vaccinated, you are not permitted to participate in person.  

As of Sept. 22, 2021, we will adhere to the provincial requirement for meeting indoors at restaurants or meeting halls, and you will need to show proof of identity and proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Let’s continue to practice social distancing and keep us safe and healthy!

    It's a new year!  Have you made a new year's resolution to lose weight?  How are you feeling about your mental health and wellness?  Start the year off right with some gentle reminders on nutrition, mental health and wellness! 

    Join in as Amanda from the V!VA Retirement Community shares how a proper diet and your mental health and wellness go hand in hand, especially for our age group!  Eating a nutrient-dense diet can prevent degenerative disease, cancers, micronutrient deficiencies, and most importantly support one's vitality! This is an interactive session, with our facilitator (Amanda - see bio below) walking us through 6 key nutrients to be mindful of when planning your meals. Walk away with a healthy mind and feeling equipped and energized to start prepping, cooking, and enjoying your fully satisfying meal!

    Let's lose some of those pounds we have put on in the past two years!  Start 2022 off in a healthy way!  Challenge yourself!

    Amanda Li is a Toronto-based Registered Dietitian, owner of Wellness Simplified, Instructor at George Brown College and a foodie at heart. Upon completing a culinary arts diploma she knew she wanted to bring together her dietetic experience to create a nutrition coaching philosophy that is food-centric and grounded in teaching individuals a basic life skill - nourishing their body, mind and soul. She has helped hundreds of individuals and families by encouraging, educating, and equipping them with hands-on food skills to make healthy eating the easier choice! Amanda loves learning new skills and approaches, and strives to provide the most up-to-date, evidenced based recommendations. She is currently pursuing a Certificate in Integrative and Functional Nutrition. When she's not working with clients, students, or attending class  herself she can be found in the kitchen whipping up a new recipe, or choreographing a new dance routine! Amanda looks forward to meeting you soon!
