Our Strength is Fellowship; Our Success is Participation.

Welcome to the
men’s Probus Club of Collingwood!

The Probus Club of Collingwood, which celebrated it’s 34th anniversary in October, 2020, is the original men’s Probus Club of the Georgian Triangle, and one of the first in Ontario. Informative speakers each month combined with a membership of over 140 retired and semi-retired active men, enable us to create a place of enjoyment and fellowship in the community, emphasizing the Probus motto. We enjoy numerous trips and social events throughout the year, including golf, biking, theatre, excursions, and tours of businesses throughout Ontario.



All regular meetings are cancelled until further notice. Meetings are now conducted on ZOOM.

October Speaker:
Thursday October 7th, 10.30 am.
Our fellow member Dr. Bob Galway will bring us up to date on the COVID pandemic. If you've seen Dr. Galway's earlier presentations you know that he will be superbly well researched and will provide an easy to understand but in-depth explanation of the current state of affairs.

Hoping to see your smiling faces on Zoom in October, brought to you by new President Terry Billo.

Remember .. be a friend, bring a friend! Just send me their email address and they'll receive the Zoom invitation.

If you hear of any member not doing well, please let us know.

President's Message:

Summer is here and things are slowly starting to return to normal, so stay safe, stay healthy and stay in touch with your friends at Probus!

The Legion now. Considering the 'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen's vintage, perhaps this might be a more suitable setup for our meetings!

Note: The Hospital will continue to hold the Legion in reserve until at least the 10th of September.
