Sauble & Area Men's Club
Men Exemplifying Neighbourliness & Service
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.
Once again the Sauble & Area Men’s Club activities have commenced with a new schedule of events in 2022 after two long years of inactivity due to the pandemic. We continue to rely on volunteers to join in on the action as we endeavor to get back to more normal activities within our community. We are in need of members to take on organization roles for events such as the Touch a Truck BBQ, Bocce Ball Tournament and the Card Night & Corn Roast to allow them to continue. The executive will provide suggestions and a list of things to do but we need to let those volunteers get helpers, product, etc. and run the show. Without your help some of these events will simply not happen! So please be prepared to volunteer. We look forward to hearing back from you to help get activities rolling once again!
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.
