Social Events between meetings can range from sporting events, live theatre, travel, visits to places of interest, to any other activity that the Social Committee wishes to organize. These are usually one time events, one per month generally, but you can participate in as many events as you wish!
A description of events is shown below. If you are interested in participating in a Social Event, please contact email@example.com.
Please note that event costs will need to be pre-paid by cheque, payable to PROBUS Club of Port Perry and either:
handed in to our Social Committee Co-Chairs, Margaret Miller or Judy Spring at monthly membership meetings or
mailed to Social, c/o Judith Spring, 22 Crescent Moon Lane, Seagrave, ON L0C 1G0.
Only payment in full by the deadline confirms registration for the event, and events with limited attendance will be filled by members in order of when the payment is received.
If you are unable to sign up in person, please use email or phone to let us know you’re interested and to arrange payment. Refunds are only issued under exceptional circumstances, so if it turns out you are unable to attend an event, please offer your ticket to other members or guests.
If you have any questions or suggestions, or if you need directions or car-pooling, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Margaret Miller at 226-229-9073 or Judy Spring at 905-447-4557.
Your Social Committee will provide as much advance notice of events as possible. Last minute sign ups may be accommodated depending on availability and the venue. Your understanding is appreciated.
