PROBUS Club of Guelph and District
PROBUS is an association of retired professionals or individuals who join together at autonomous clubs throughout the world.
The basic purpose of a PROBUS Club is to provide regular gatherings for those who, in retirement, appreciate and value opportunities to meet others in similar circumstances and of similar levels of interest.The PROBUS Club of Guelph and District is a combined club with women and men members. We thrive on fellowship and lifelong learning. We hold regular meetings to hear speakers, to discuss current topics and to conduct the Club's business. In addition, we engage in social and cultural activities both locally and out of town.
PROBUS is not a service club. We do not raise funds for charitable causes. We are not political and are non-sectarian.Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month, except July and August.
