Welcome to Owen Sound PROBUS club!
Started in October 2018 with 148 members this club has increased to 273 members in just 2 years. People need to be social to maintain good health and have the joy of living. This club helps those age 55+ retired and/or semi retired people share social activities providing regular contact through monthly General Meetings and Special Interest Groups. The real heart and soul of our club is its 38 Interest Groups (see the Interest Group page for more information) . Unfortunately the club had to suspend in-person meetings February 2020 due to Covid-19 concerns.
October 21, 2020 a new President and Management Committee were voted in, to transition from the Club Formation Committee. This new Committee is actively working to keep us connected during this trying Covid-19 time. We all know this will end, but in the mean time, we are planning virtual activities to maintain connection. Planning is also underway to get the club up and running in person as soon we are given the green light from the local health unit.
Owen Sound PROBUS club is affiliated with PROBUS Canada

This month's meeting was on October 20th. Besides club information, Ted Barris' talked about his book "The Great Escape". Youtube video of this meeting will be found under the members section of the web page once ready.
Even though many of our members are double vaccinated against Covid-19 the City is making it difficult to meet in our regular location. Hence once again we will meet by Zoom for this meeting. Hopefully it will be the last time. Emails will be sent out for the meetings Zoom link.
Events section of this web page is slowly being used. It has great promise. If you have a group meeting let one of the Management committee members know and we will post it in the calendar with all the details.
Members – look at the “meetings” page to see new guidelines for interest groups.
