Probus Clubs are celebrating ... March is National Probus month.

Today, there are some 4,000 Probus clubs throughout the world with over 300,000 members.

First formed in the 1920s in Saskatchewan and Hartford, Connecticut, Pro(fessional) and Bus(iness) clubs are for those who, although primarily retired, still want to remain active and involved in a social network with others who have similar interests.

In North America, the first Probus club was sponsored by Rotary in Galt, Cambridge Ontario in 1987.  Today, in Canada, there are more than 200 clubs with some 28,000 members.

A Club can be supported by Rotary or another Probus club, although membership in either is not a requirement to become a member.

Although many Probus club members are active volunteers in their communities, the club itself is not service oriented, is non-sectarian and non-political.  It is a forum to provide social events and host guest speakers to keep members current with community issues and happenings.

The Kincardine Clulb meets the third Tuesday of each month at 9:45 a.m. at the Davidson Centre and new members are always welcome.
