I hope that this communication finds you well. Your Management Committee has been meeting on a regular basis both by Zoom and in person to keep us all aware of Probus issues and as you will read in the Newsletter/Update, the activities of the sub-committees.
We’ve been trying to find ways that our special events could continue but, the protocols put in place by government and health care specialists make it impossible to put any of these in place.
Just as soon as we reach some form of normalcy your Management Committee will be in touch once again. Hopefully this will come sooner than later and safely!!!
In the meantime, please stay safe, stay healthy and enjoy the Summer.
PROBUS BEST WISHES!!!
Eddie Sokoloff President, PROBUS Club of Blue Mountain
Discussion took place at the August 5, 2020 Management Committee meeting that activities and events might be possible if the insurance issues are satisfactorily resolved and not an issue now that groups up to 50 people inside and a larger group outside are allowed and Zoom meetings are available.
Please see the message from Bob Sanelli below.
Our Investment Group meetings are always on the second Tuesday of each month at 10:00 a.m.to 12 noon. The September meeting will be held on September 8/2020 at the Library if it can be held there. If not then it will be online. Our speaker will be Jamie Carrasco. His main topic will be Bitcoin. If this topic does not garner interest, he may give an overview and his opinion on investing during these turbulent times.
The same plan will apply for the October 13/2020 meeting as for time and location. The speakers from KJH, Sarah Bull and Joel Clark will give their views on current events.
The November 10/2020 presenters from Milestone are Paul Mitchell and Dan Solomon will bring some interesting investment information to us. It is our intention to have live presentations as stated above but due to Covid 19 restrictions we may have to do the meetings as webinars online. Please contact Bob Sanelli at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Finally, stay well, stay healthy and remember that an expert is one that has made all the mistakes.
Hoping that you are all coping well.
It is worth repeating to follow the health guidelines for coping with the Covid-19 pandemic.
Although we may be in an “isolation” state we are far from being alone and facing loneliness. Use the technology that you are comfortable with to keep in touch with friends and loved ones. In our community there are plenty of areas to enjoy the out of doors while practicing social distancing, so get outside.
Lastly, as Eddie said in his message, “keep a positive attitude”. Stress comes when we feel that we do not have choices. Our attitude we can choose and control.
