March is PROBUS Month in Canada!

The first Club in Canada was formed on March 17, 1987 in Cambridge ON.

PROBUS, a derivative of PROfessional and BUSiness began in England in 1965. Retired gentlemen, who had being members of a Rotary Club, decided to form a Club whose purposes were to learn by inviting a speaker each month to their meeting and to socialize.

 Locally, a Menís PROBUS Club was started in Port Elgin in 1987 (now called the Menís PROBUS Club of Saugeen Shores). The men meet the first Tuesday of the month @ 9:30 a.m. at Port Elgin Legion.

 With the help of the Menís PROBUS Club, a group of 39 women formed a Ladies PROBUS Club of Saugeen Shores in 2009. Membership now stands at 145. Their meetings are the 4th Tuesday of the month at the Museum @ 10 a.m.
