Welcome

A few words from the new President

Pronica Janiskowski was elected at a Management Committee meeting to be the new President.

President Pronica Janiskowski

Welcome to a new year of PROBUS activities. We have had such a fabulous fall so far with beautiful tree colours all over Prince Edward County and beyond. I hope everyone has been able to take advantage of the extended warm weather and get outside.

I first want to say a big thank you to Rick Moynes and the Management Committee for steering us through more of the pandemic. Unfortunately, it is not over yet but it seems to have become more manageable.

I am very excited to be taking over as president this year. With our hybrid meetings a reality now, I am hoping all of you can join us at our monthly meetings either in person or via Zoom.

COVID-19 Vaccination Policy

At the Management Committee meeting held on Tuesday, March 15, 2022 the following revised COVID-19 Vaccination Policy was approved:

That all members of the PROBUS Club of Prince Edward County be fully vaccinated to participate in PROBUS activities. For in-person attendance at monthly meetings at the Elks Hall, proof of full vaccination and wearing a mask is required. For the safety of all concerned, and because our membership is in the high risk group, we will take a cautious approach to reopening.
