From Our President: Update on Response To COVID-19 (April 1st.,2020)

 

Dear Friends,

 
Firstly, let me congratulate the new Committee, and welcome newbies Peter, Fiona and Gail. A big thanks to Graham for undertaking his Returning Officer role in difficult circumstances. And also thank you to Peter for devising the vehicle for conducting the AGM online.

I know you will all share with me your appreciation to departing members of the previous Committee: Linda, Rhoda, Louise and Charlie. We have done very well through their contributions over a considerable period of time. They deserve their well earned break.

Of course, the break we are now all compelled to take means we need to do some creative thinking.

Your new Committee will look at ways for us to maintain contact with each other. On the one hand, the Committee itself will need to meet in some manner that is not physical. We have commenced looking at software that would allow us to do this online. More about that later.

Meanwhile, Committee members please note that the meeting scheduled for 7 April is cancelled. However, Committee members should continue to set aside 10.30 am on the first Tuesday of the month for our alternative means of meeting. Next scheduled Committee meeting will therefore be 5 May.

As for our whole group, we are looking at ways to maintain contact. One possible solution would be a Probus Greenway Facebook page. In fact, that notion was canvassed by the Working Group report you have all read. This would allow members to post images, text and video, and message individuals or the whole group. And don’t forget we already have our Greenway Probus web page with – thanks to John – updated information.

A reminder that to access the web page you should enter “tinyurl.com/probusclub” (without quotation marks) in your browser. Then don’t forget to save it in your “Favorites”.

And also a reminder to those who have yet to pay their membership fee. The following are options which Glenda has proposed:

  •     A cheque for $28 pp made out to “Combined Probus Club of Greenway”, sent to Glenda at 12 Broad Place, Kambah ACT 2902.

  •     Drop around to Glenda’s place with the cash.

  •     A bank transfer to this account:

Commonwealth Bank, Tuggeranong
BSB 062-914
Account No. 10634121
Account Name. Combined Probus Club of Greenway
Reference: at this spot enter your surname.

 
Finally, I hope you are all keeping well in this difficult time. For many, it’s an opportunity to catch up on things they have been unable to attend to. Our garden is certainly getting a lot of attention.

Kind regards,

Paul Varsanyi

President, Greenway Probus
