IMPORTANT NOTICE TO CLUB MEMBERS
CLUB ACTIVITIES INVOLVING IN-PERSON INTERACTIONS CONTINUE TO BE SUSPENDED UNTIL THE END OF JUNE 2020. PLEASE SEE THE PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE IN THE MAY 18TH NEWSLETTER FOR ANY EXCEPTIONS ARISING OUT OF RECENT PROVINCIAL LOOSENING OF SOME COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS. IN ADDITION, MONTHLY IN-PERSON CLUB MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS WILL BE SUSPENDED UNTIL AT LEAST SEPTEMBER 2020. CLUB TRAVEL OPPORTUNITIES ARE SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY.
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.
Virtual Social Activities as of May 2020
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. If you are interested, please email Janet at email@example.com.
Thursday May 28th – 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Join Judy Spring and other travelers via Zoom to chat about places you are hoping to travel following COVID-19. If you are interested in joining the group, please email Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tuesday May 26th – 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Join Judy Spring and other friends for an online game of bridge. Using Bridge Base Online, Judy will set up groups of four players. You can choose your foursome, or join a group. You can be a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player but you must know how to play. If you are interested, please
email Judy at email@example.com.
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 members a friendly call to brighten their
day. If you don’t have their contact information, email Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org and the information will be provided.
