About Us

In 2010, the Ladies PROBUS Club of the North Shore had a large waiting list for membership which warranted the formation of a second North Shore Ladies’ Club.   Brenda Johnson, Sue Campbell, and (the late) Kathy Jackson directed the formation of the new club. The Lions Gate Women’s PROBUS Club of the North Shore Vancouver(LGWPROBUS)  received its official Charter on September 15, 2010 from National Director of PROBUS District 2 , John Leonard .

Initial membership of the new club was 200, but it quickly grew to 270, today, post- COVID we have 195 members with annual membership dues of $90.

The first president and our first Honorary Member (2021), Sheilah Grant writes “ It was a great experience as I met some very talented women , many  of whom I had not known before, who assisted me in getting the new club going”.  Membership dues in 2010 were $60.

Until March 2021, LGWPROBUS had been fortunate to hold our Speaker’s meetings at Capilano Golf and Country Club. We now meet at the West Vancouver Yacht Club.

Recent Special Events included Art Gallery visits, annual Christmas luncheons, fashion shows, Haute Couture exhibits, Gourmet Warehouse visit, CBC tour, lunch at Vancouver Culinary School ,a tour of the New Cypress Village Pop-up Village, a Theatrical tour of the New Shipyards in North Vancouver, a tour to the Richmond Oval Olympic Experience and more.
