The Woodstock Men’s Probus Club welcomes men in retirement to broaden their minds and enjoy the many activities of an active social group.
The 2019-2020 club year is well underway. At our September Annual General Meeting, we elected officers for the upcoming year, We also considered and approved the business that the club has accomplished in the past year; We finalized a budget for the upcoming year, as well as finished up all of our usual business.
Welcome back to our 100+ members and we encourage you to participate to keep the club interesting, informative and friendly. Please consider helping by suggesting tours, speakers and social events to our committees. New ideas are always welcomed.

Probus is a great way to stay involved in your community without fundraising! We all probably did that in our careers and now we can just meet once a month for a couple of hours and learn from our Guest Speakers and from our Getting To Know You talks by our members.
“Each meeting starts with an opportunity to purchase a 50/50 ticket and part way through the meeting we break for coffee/tea and cookies.”. All new members prepare a 10 minute talk on their background or interests. Don’t worry you are generally in our club for almost 2 years before you need to do this and you will see how relaxed and easy it is. We all love hearing about our members! Next we move on in our meeting to our excellent Guest Speakers who generally prepare a 20-30 minute presentation. These speakers have varied backgrounds and you can always take something useful away from their talks.
We enjoy some planned outings and usually at least two lunch socials per year.
As in any volunteer organization, there are lots of committees in the background running different aspects of the club so there are lots of opportunities to get involved with seasoned veterans ready to assist.
Meetings are held monthly on the third Wednesday at the Southgate Centre from 10:00 to 12:00 noon. Come out and see if you like it. We think that you will!
Probus clubs are organizations for men and women who have retired from their profession or business and want to maintain a social network with others who have similar interests * each club is sponsored by a Rotary club and meet at least once a month for fellowship and to hear guest speakers * there are over 300,000 members in approximately 4,000 Probus clubs worldwide .
Probus Clubs are non-political, non-profit and non-fund raising. We are an active group of about 150 women who as the word Pro (fessional) Bus (iness). indicates, are a combination of retired business and professional women. Membership is not restricted to these groups but embraces former executives of government or organizations in which anyone has had a measure of responsibility.
Fees are set by the local club. We encourage women to attend as a guest for the first time and then hopefully will be excited about becoming a member following your visit.
Woodstock-Oxford Women’s Probus Club began in 1995 and as we enter another decade we ask you to consider joining with us to share in the rewards of being a member of Probus. We look forward to meeting you.
