PS: “Zoom meeting extra”
Thank you to all our Probus members who have been diligently practicing in the social distancing and staying home where possible the Government are telling us we are doing an excellent job. “Have another $100.00” lol lol
I know during this challenging time it is difficult to separate yourself from family and friends, but it is important that we continue to do this to keep ourselves and loved ones safe.
As a Probus Club we are successfully following the Government advice, I am confident that we can continue to keep ourselves safe from the COVID-19 Virus.
Please continue to be kind to each other, this is a very tough time for all, but I am proud of our Probus Taylors Lakes Club and the super extra effort our past president Bruce Verlander and Chris Smith have handled this situation,
Thank you and God bless all.
