Saugeen Shores Mayor to speak at local PROBUS Club in April

Each year, Mayor Luke Charbonneau is invited to speak to the Saugeen Shores Men’s PROBUS club and update members on the Town’s activities during the past year and plans for the future.

The Mayor lives in Saugeen Shores with his wife Alison and his three young sons, Benjamin, Theodore and Martin and, along with his parents Norm and Nora, is the owner of the local fresh fruit and vegetable market Hi-Berry Farm.

He was first elected to Saugeen Shores Council, as a representative for Saugeen Township in 2006 and served as the municipality’s Deputy Mayor from 2010 to 2018.  During this time, he also served as Chair of the Saugeen Shores Police Services Board.

In addition, he served on the Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority (SVCA) for 11 years between 2006 and 2018, as a member of the Executive Committee from 2011 to 2015, and as Chair from 2015 to 2018.

He was also acclaimed as Mayor of Saugeen Shores in both 2018 and 2022 municipal elections. Working with Saugeen Shores’ team of councillors and municipal staff, he is dedicated to ensuring that Saugeen Shores continues to be a leading community in Bruce County.

This year, the Mayor will be speaking at the PROBUS meeting on Tuesday, April 2nd, at the Port Elgin Legion.

The Club meets on the first Tuesday of each month and is a social time for men who are retired or about to retire.  Each monthly meeting includes a guest speaker who is an expert in his/her particular field and usually ends with lunch at a local restaurant.

New members are always welcome and, for more information, contact Membership Chair, Vic Armstrong at
