Men Exemplifying Neighbourliness and Service
Sauble & Area Men's Club
Welcome to the Sauble and Area Men's Club website. We invite you to to take a few minutes and have a closer look at our activities and goals to determine if involvement in such a group would interest you.
We have grown from a group of 20 interested men who met together for the first time in the 1980's to a club that now approaches 200 members.
All men are welcome to join us.
Greetings fellow Men’s Club Members. Your Executive is sorry to inform you that our Dinner Meeting planned for October 20th has been cancelled. Public Health restrictions for indoor events are widely known and we are sure that this news will not come as a surprise to anyone. We will indeed miss the opportunity to gather for fellowship and learning. Your Executive will be planning for next year’s activities towards the end of this year and that will be posted on the website. So far shuffleboard at the Community Centre will not go ahead as that facility remains closed. We will keep you informed on just what will happen regarding Remembrance Day as we get closer to November and learn of the Legion’s plans in that regard. Our aim right now is to proceed with the Christmas Kettle Campaign and because there will be no dinner meeting where you can sign up for a shift at Fretz’s Valu-mart in December this will be handled by email from organizer Dave Corbett. Please watch for more details and be ready to offer a few hours of your time to this more than ever important project. Your Executive has met to discuss the entire end of year events and we are taking the most responsible approach with safety in mind for everyone during this difficult time. We are all in this fight together and as long as we all take the proper precautions we will hopefully be back to some kind of normalcy sooner than later. Stay safe and keep others safe as well.

Past projects have included an $11,675 donation to Hope International which provided an entire village in Cambodia with safe, clean water. Every December members volunteer to assist with The Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign. The Hope Springs Project, the Residential Hospice of Grey Bruce, the Peninsula Food Bank, the Tytoo Orphanage, the Friends of Sauble Beach, the Sauble Health Care Clinic, the Canadian Food Grains Bank, Sleeping Children Around The World and the Mennonite Relief Fund have also benefited from the generosity of our members and our fundraising appeals.
Monday morning pickleball and Thursday morning golf at Chesley Lake Camp are two of our popular activities. For a very nominal fee members and their guests can enjoy this popular pastime. We also offer horseshoes on Wednesday evening and a shuffleboard tournament in late November or early December. Every August our Club organizes a Family Bocce Ball Tournament which is popular and well attended. September’s Car Rally is another great activity which we anticipate. Trips to Stratford Festival in the Spring and the Fall to witness excellent theatre are highlights for many of our members.
Community Service and Fundraising
Our club has adopted for clean-up purposes, the section of the Sauble Falls Parkway from Main Street to Sauble Falls. Support for Sauble’s Scout Organization is demonstrated annually. We also present an annual award to a deserving student at Amabel Sauble Community School. Purchase of a wreath for presentation at the Remembrance Day Service at Hepworth is made every November. Donations for benches on the beachfront as well as flags were made.
This goal is achieved mainly through arranging tours and having guest speakers at our dinner meetings. Recent excursions have included the Bruce Peninsula National Park Centre, Bruce County Museum, Grey Roots and the Meaford Tank Range, the Toyota factory in Cambridge, Canadian Forces Base at Camp Borden and in 2017 a trip to the RoadTrek factory in Waterloo is planned. A variety of topics have been included in themes presented by speakers at our dinner meetings. These have included among other things sports, medicine, environment, photography, safety, and energy.
