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.

July 8, ZOOM Meeting

Meeting opens @ 10:00, Starts @ 10:30

July meeting: Thursday July 8, @10.30am

The doors open @ 10:00 for 30 magical minutes of fellowship, comraderie, verbal intercourse, story telling, liberally laced with truth, and baloney!

Speaker: Chris Pilsworth, illusionist. 'The Canadian Conjurer!

Please see 'Speakers Page'.

Remember.....please keep us informed if you hear of members with health issues or otherwise not doing well.

And....be a friend, bring a friend. If you have friends showing interest in our Club, (or going nuts in the lockdowns) invite them to our Zoom meetings. No Charge! Just send me their email address and I'll add them to the mailing list............and we'll talk about membership when real meetings roll around again.

Stay safe and well!

President's Message:

As we see Spring beginning anew, stay safe, stay healthy and stay in touch with your friends at Probus!

Mike Martynuik.

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