From Our President: Update July 7th.,2020)

 

Dear Friends,

The COVID-19 situation in the ACT has become something of an “on again off again” situation, while Victoria is experiencing a most unwelcome resurgence.  So,we bide our time somewhat longer regarding meetings. 

In any event, we do not have a venue: Town Centre Vikings has only partially re-opened, and its spaces for meetings are not available.  I have taken the opportunity to raise once again with the club our wish to retain the booking for the third Tuesday of the month, and they have recently re-confirmed with me that the spot remains ours.

With the passage of time our membership is undergoing changes.  In a few short weeks, Joy Chandler is leaving Canberra to take up residence in Coffs Harbour, together with her daughter Toni.

Long-time members will recall that Joy was the first President of Greenway Combined Probus.  She took up that appointment at the establishment of our club in 2007. She had been President of the GreenwayLadies Club, which had been suffering from a chronicdecline in membership. With the help of Rotary Club, the Greenway Combined Probus Club was established, and the Greenway Ladies Club amalgamated with it. 

Her valuable contributions over the years were recognised in her being made a Life Member. So, she will continue to be one of us, and will continue to receive notices and newsletters. Her new email address is [email protected] new postal address will be 69 Adelines Way, Coffs Harbour, NSW 2450.

We could not let her departure happen without a final acknowledgment of Joy’s valuable role in the club. On 12 July, Alan Parker and I visited Joy and Toni at their home andpresented Joy with flowers and a Certificate of Appreciation.  

Joy mentioned that she would love to hear from us, and I’m sure many of you will maintain contact with her.

Take care and be safe.

Paul
