Keeping in Touch – Newsletter Issue 7, October 2020

Hi Everyone

Our October Newsletter is to celebrate the theme for the inaugural Probus Day.

Probus Day will be an annual event which traditionally across the world is known as the ‘United Nations Day of Older Persons.  However, Australia and New Zealand will celebrate this occasion as Probus Day on 1st October or any day during the month of October.

Probus South Pacific’s theme for this year …  Staying Connected and Active with Probus – the key to happy retirement … this theme couldn’t be better put.

As you read through our Newsletter, I am sure you will thoroughly enjoy and reflect on the amazing and happy days we have had, the wonderful people we have met, friendships formed, events, places and interest groups we have all participated in at various times – all of which have been a great part of our Club since our inception in 2014 and have certainly kept us active, alert and happy.

Enjoy this month’s ‘Keeping in Touch’ newsletter.

Keeping in Touch-Newsletter Issue 5, August 2020

Hi Everyone

First and foremost, I hope you are all well and safe and remaining strong and
positive during even more challenging months ahead with COVID-19.

We are now into our 5th Newsletter and I must say I was hopeful that we would
be closing in on being able to phase in our Meetings. This will now not be
possible given the current resurgence moving across Victoria and NSW.

The times ahead are critical for us all to remain diligent and everyone in the
community must play a role if we are to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

I am asking of you all for the safety and well-being of our loved ones, family,
friends and neighbours…. please, if you are feeling unwell – isolate and get
tested and maintain the social distancing rule at all times.

The Dept of Health has asked everyone to consider wearing a face mask in situations where physical distancing is not possible and to download the COVIDSafe app so you are able to be quickly notified if you have been in close contact with anyone who becomes ‘positive’.

Having said all the above, on a lighter happier note, enthusiasm and pleasure is
not diminished as we all enjoy in both the giving and receiving of these many
interesting and varied articles shared in our monthly Newsletters which is
keeping us in touch.

Time to take a break, sit back and click on the link to this months Keeping in Touch” and be mindful every day of the care and well-being we must all take with ourselves and all of those around us.

Warm Regards

Kathy Beresford
