President’s Message – November 2014

Robert Aug 2014Wow, where did October go! We are now into November with our PROBUS AGM coming up at the Meeting on the 7th. Thank you to all members of the Management Committee who have agreed to run for a second year and to new members who have agreed to put their name forward.

I had heard that retirement can be very busy and certainly volunteering will cut into your time. However when people step forward to offer their talents and time, both the volunteers and the club benefit. We have pioneered sharing for several of our positions and this has helped spread the workload and makes it easier when people want to go away.

Not a part of the Management Committee?  Then consider joining a new Special Interest group or leading an Out & About activity.  Been a member for a long time and done your service time?  Then share your friendship and knowledge to welcome and mentor new members to our club.  We always need people as greeters and for 50/50 sales for each meeting so don’t be shy.  Thank you to everyone for helping so we can all have fun.

As we enter the Holiday Season in December don’t forget to sign-up for our Christmas Dinner Party at Fairwinds this year on Wednesday, December 10.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the November meeting before we start to lose some southward-bound snowbirds.  Think sunshine wherever you are.
