Welcome to Probus Club of Scarborough Tuesday

 

Probus Club invites you to spend time with us. We are a friendly group who meet monthly at the Royal Canadian Legion and welcome new guests and members.

 

Our club’s purpose is to provide regular gatherings for active retirees, creating opportunities to keep minds active and expand interests while making new friends through fellowship. Without the constraints and obligations of a service club, we are able to keep membership costs at a minimum. Our local club is sponsored by Rotary Club of Scarborough.

 

Main club activities include monthly meetings that feature interesting and entertaining guest speakers plus our social coffee break. Recently club members and guests enjoyed presentations by Erik Conroy, President and CEO of Friends of Keewatin (last remaining Great Lakes passenger liner), and ‘Canada’s Indiana Jones’, professional explorer and adventurer Adam Shoalts. We also organize visits and social outings to places of interest to our members. A recent bus trip took members and guests to Niagara on the Lake for Alice in Wonderland at the Shaw Festival Theatre, stopping for lunch at the Pillar & Post Inn.

 

Probus Club was founded in 1966 by the Rotary Club of Caterham, England. They are non-political, not-for-profit and non-fundraising clubs. The first North American club was in Cambridge, Ontario in 1987. Probus has since spread world-wide, and continues to grow. There are now over 200 clubs in Canada.

 

Probus Club of Scarborough Tuesday has approximately 100 members. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 10:00 a.m. to noon at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 258, 45 Lawson Road. Members are free and guests are welcome to attend for only $5 – come early for coffee and to meet club members. Members wear name badges, so just pick one and say hello!
