Our Strength is Fellowship; Our Success is Participation.
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.

Our final (we hope) Zoom meeting, 2 December 2022.
Speaker: Andrew Promaine, Manager of Resource Conservation at the Georgian Bay Islands National Park. Please see Speakers Page.
His Topic: Established in 1929 Georgian Bay Islands National Park is actually the smallest one in Canada. But don't let the size fool you! Not only are we a National Park, we are a National Historic Site, 2 distinct bio-regions, the most amphibians and reptiles, a World Biosphere, and 26 species-at-risk. Spread over 50 Islands, we have inspired a variety of artists from Group of Seven to Gordon Lightfoot.
This presentation will reveal some things about the history and future of this remarkable place.
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.
