Cobourg Probus learns about James Cockburn

Robert Washburn spoke to the Cobourg Probus Club on Jan. 19, 2012 as part of the public education initiative for the James Cockburn Statue Project.

Probus is a worldwide organization sponsored by Rotary. It is not a service club and it is non-secretarian. The clubs provide an opportunity for people to meet socially and learn about community issues and happenings.

It was a lively meeting and the audience was very engaged. There were plenty of follow up questions.

A copy of the speech can be downloaded here.
