January 26th, Noah Morritt
Supernatural Newfoundland Folklore and Local Legends

Noah Morritt is the Museum Manager and Curator of the Torbay History House & Museum in Torbay, Newfoundland & Labrador. He holds undergraduate degrees in anthropology and history, as well as a Masters and PhD in folklore from Memorial University. He specializes in the folklore and oral traditions of Atlantic Canada with a specific focus on local legends and the supernatural.

One of his students wrote a testimonial:
Professor Morritt is fantastic. Very kind and wants students to understand and enjoy the course. Willing to help, flexible office hours, will explain any information you dont understand. Highly recommend taking one of his courses!

Sounds like we are in for a treat!


February 23rd, Ralph Benmergui
From Age-ing to Sage-ing

Ralph Benmergui is best known as an award winning broadcaster. Starting as an actor and stand-up comedian he shifted into journalism and became a program host in his long career at the CBC. Today he is a podcaster, ordained spiritual counselor and now, author, with the release of his spiritual memoir I Thought He Was Dead.

Born in Morocco, raised in Toronto Ralph now is the father of four and now makes Hamilton his home.

Ralph will talk about the path from Age-ing to Sage-ing. How we can renew our sense of purpose and cultivate our wisdom in a society that doesn't appreciate that we can be old and improved.

 PROBUS' Vital Purpose

... to stimulate thought, interest and participation in activities at a time in life when it is easy to become complacent and self-centred.
