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:
May 2, 0945

Dues are now due! $60
