What is Probus?

Retirement can come early for many people who want to remain active. Probus Clubs are organizations for men and women who have retired from their profession or business, and want to maintain a social network with others who have similar interests.

Each Probus Club is sponsored by a Rotary Club, but each is autonomous. Probus Clubs are not service clubs, are non-sectarian and not involved in fundraising.

There are over 4000 Probus Clubs internationally. Each is dedicated to remaining active and engaged after retirement or semi-retirement from business and other professions.

Probus provides fellowship, interesting guest speakers and social activities with monthly meetings throughout the year.

Our Strength is Fellowship; Our Success is Participation”

Probus Club of Collingwood

Formed in 1987, we are the original menʼs Probus Club in the Georgian Triangle, and one of the first in Ontario. The Probus Club of Collingwood has always had interesting and informative speakers for each meeting, and they continue to be one of our most enjoyed features. At each meeting, a member may present his profile and background, some very interesting people indeed! Occasionally, a short presentation on a topic of interest to the membership may be substituted.

In addition, there numerous trips and social events throughout the year, including golf, biking, hiking, theatre, excursions, tours of businesses and places of interest throughout the Georgian Triangle.

Whether you are able to attend every month, are a snowbird, or someone who likes to get away from it all at various times of the year, it does not matter. Our club is here for your enjoyment year-round.

We welcome you to visit with us as a guest. Feel free to drop into one of our meetings for a look at any time! We would enjoy meeting you.
