PROBUS CHALLENGE


You are challenged to consider fellow PROBUS members who live alone or may be having trouble throughout this lengthy period of social distancing. This may be coping with day to day living or isolation. They may not wish to reach out for help. Give two a friendly call to brighten their
day. If you don’t have their contact information, email Judy at judith.spring@outlook.com and the information will be provided.

ZOOM CLUB

Remotely on computer & phone by appointment - Join Tim and Janet Casey for a lesson just for you in order to learn how to use Zoom. Zoom is an easy virtual meeting tool that allows you to meet with groups of people, large and small. You may connect with one friend, or meet a group who
bring their own beverages to the table and chat while seeing each other – a distanced get together. Interested? Please email Janet at
janet.casey88@gmail.com


Need to convene a Zoom meeting for a PROBUS club event that will exceed 40 minutes?


We now have an account with Zoom that allows us to hold meetings of up to 100 people for up to 24 hours. So if you’re scheduling a Zoom meeting for club members that may go over the 40 minutes allowed for meetings on the free Zoom accounts, please email Tim Casey at president.portperryprobus@gmail.com to schedule the Zoom meeting.
