IMPORTANT NOTICE TO CLUB MEMBERS
CLUB ACTIVITIES CANCELLED OR SUSPENDED THROUGH EARLY MAY 2020
As a direct result of the public health recommendations related to the COVID-19 virus and the risks to our members and guests, the following cancellations and suspensions are in effect for activities of the PROBUS Club of Port Perry:
1.) The March 17th membership meeting was cancelled.
2.) The April 21st membership meeting is cancelled.
3.) All interest group activities are suspended effective immediately and until May 7th
4.) The April 18th Spring Fling Dance is cancelled. Cheques received by the club from individuals for the dance will be destroyed unless the cheque issuer advises Ann Skinner on the Social Committee (at 905-982-8865 or firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 3rd that the cheque is to be returned.
5.) The Oshawa Little Theatre performance of “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” on April 4th has been tentatively postponed by the theatre to May. As a result of the change, the club has cancelled its participation due to the schedule uncertainty and the limited flexibility of ticket changes if the postponement date is accepted. Cheques already received by the club from individuals for the performance will be destroyed unless the cheque issuer advises the club treasurer (Bill Morrison at 905-985-2624 or at email@example.com) by April 3rd that the cheque is to be returned.
6.) We have cancelled our club’s attendance at the Oshawa Little Theatre performance of “Cinderella” for May 16th.
7.) The March 24th Irish Kitchen Party tour was cancelled by the tour provider (Cardinal Coach Tours) who will issue refunds to those who signed up and paid.
8.) While club-sponsored events scheduled in June and beyond are not being cancelled at this time, the club will not be selling any further tickets to those events until we have more certainty of the public health recommendations in place for those specific locations and times. Those events include the club's Anniversary Luncheon on June 11th, a Herongate Theatre production on June 18th, and a visit/lunch to the Lucy Maud Montgomery House on July 18th. We will keep you informed as circumstances change regarding these events.
9.) The travel opportunities which are scheduled between June and October this year that were in last month’s newsletter (and are on the website) remain uncertain at this time. Anyone who has signed up for any of those trips should check with the tour provider(s) as to the status of the trip and any potential cancellation of it. In addition such individuals who may be considering cancelling such a trip or are concerned about trip interruption and travel insurance provisions should also check with their trip insurance provider in the event that such coverage may be terminated in the near future by the insurer (as is happening elsewhere).
The overall result of the above cancellations is that the club is suspending all of its activities until at least early May. We will reassess the situation at that time, and suspension of club activities for a further period of time may become necessary. The club’s management committee will keep you informed as events impacting the club’s operations unfold.

TEMPORARY MEMBERSHIP MORATORIUM
The PROBUS Club of Port Perry has recently put in place a temporary moratorium on taking new memberships due to the club reaching the capacity of its meeting facilitities. Individuals wishing to join the club as new members can put their name on our waiting list by emailing the request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our focus is on fostering similar interests, organization social events and providing monthly membership meetings with interesting speakers for the retired and semi-retired residents of Port Perry and the surrounding area.
Rising out of membership and activities there self-generating goodwill, with a sense of fellowship, a diverse background of interests and a feeling and cordiality evident within the PROBUS clubs.
The basic purpose of a PROBUS Club is to provide regular gatherings to those in retirement or semi-retirement in our area. Meeting new people and making new friends is just one of the advantages of being a PROBUS member.
