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 31st anniversary in October, 2017, 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 160 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.

 

 

Our next meeting is:
July 4, 0945

Dues are now due! $60

Millers Dairy Creemore Tour
Jun 25 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Our family began milking Jerseys in 1959 as Jersey milk was in strong demand because of its exceptional quality. All of our present-day cows can be traced back generations to our original herd. John’s father always said what impressed him most was that the Jersey cow breeds true to her genetic line. There was never any discussion about switching breeds. We knew Jersey cows meant always having a quality product.
Tour is June 25 at 10:00 am. It will last for approximately 2 hours.

Lunch is being planned for the Old Mill Pub in Creemore. Please let Brian know ASAP if you plan to join in, so he can make reservations! Thank you.
