When planning activities or social club events, we plan our budget to be cost neutral. In some cases we have to provide the ‘vendor’ with a deposit. As you know, some of our activities and social club events are limited to a certain number of members. From there we use a waitlist. Pre-COVID cheques were cashed at the beginning of the month of the event unless otherwise stated. We are following this same practice now in that once the registration date has expired on Wild Apricot, we will not be able to provide a refund for the activity/event. We appreciate that last minute things come up and by no means do we want you to participate in a function if you are feeling unwell. You are more than welcome to find a replacement either from a waitlist or another PROBUS member. This will ensure that we have sufficient funds received for the event and to remit payment to the vendor(s) involved. While there may be situations where we can refund you, we don’t want you to count on this. An example of this is if the vendor agrees to charge based on the number of members actually attending the function.
We sincerely appreciate your participation in our activities and social clubs events and trust you are enjoying them as well.

On Friday, Sept. 10, a poll will be sent out with a link to the Proforma Financial Statement and the slate of management candidates. You have the option to register your vote via the poll prior to 6pm Tuesday Sept. 14 or at the meeting.
If you do not vote via the poll, it is important that you attend the meeting in order to achieve a quorum.

An Important Message from the Escarpment PROBUS Management Committee about COVID Vaccinations
Most of us have been fully vaccinated and while there are no immediate plans to hold a hybrid general meeting, we do have Social Clubs and Activities resuming. As you are aware, our club adheres to any provincial restrictions and recommendations regarding COVID. To ensure the safety of all of us - especially immunocompromised friends and family - and all unvaccinated children, we request that any member participating in an in-person PROBUS Meeting, Social Club or Activity be fully vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated, you are not permitted to participate. We will not be requesting proof, but will be running PROBUS Meetings, Social Clubs and Activities on the honour system.
Our new website provides us with information about our club's membership, meetings, and activities and social clubs. Members can now update their own contact information and soon will be able to register for events and renew memberships all from the comfort of our own homes using our computers or phones.
