Important Notice to Members Booking and Attending Club Activities during COVID 19 Restrictions

President's Report

It is hard to believe that the first month of the year is already gone. I hope that it has started for all on a good note. We had a very successful BBQ and a trip to Davistown RSL for Lunch. Many of you enjoyed both events, meeting with all your friends. Probus is such a great club for meeting new and old friends. Your Committee continues to organise events and speakers with lots of different interests, lunches and dinners. We always need new blood on the committee with new ideas, and helpers to assist us in this work, and would encourage you to think how you could make the club even more interesting.

Membership Subscriptions

Advance Notice: 

Membership Subscriptions for the period 1st April 2023 to 31st March 2024 

The Committee is currently considering the membership subscription for the year commencing 1st April 2023. Once the financial result for the year ending 31st December has been determined and there is more certainty of the coming year’s expected operating cost increases, we will be in a position to finalise the subscription. 

For the past few years, we have been able to hold the subscription unchanged at $85, mainly due to savings possible as a result of conducting fewer regular meetings due to Covid. However, with those savings no longer available and the expected increase in operating costs, an increase in the subscription appears inevitable. A final decision will be made by the committee at its February meeting, following which members will be notified. 

The Committee will continue to work to keep operating costs to a minimum, while providing members with interesting and enjoyable social experiences, which represent excellent value.
