We are back!!

 

We had our first in-person monthly Club meeting on April 4 at our old venue – the Port Credit Yacht Club and 27 attended in person while 44 chose to attend via Zoom. I respect the decision made by some around the risks of illness, but those risks are for most, now minimal.

 

For me, the opportunity to see friends again after more than two years was something I looked forward to. We did then and will continue to do our best to provide a safe environment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ours is first and foremost a social club and your Management Committee works very hard to provide excellent value for your membership – not only do we have thought-provoking and educational speakers every month, but a number of outlets for you to socialize, be it over a meal, on your bicycles, or simply out for a walk. Paul Moore started the “Senior Common Room” where we meet once a month and fix all that ails the world.

 

A number of our members have not yet paid their pro-rated dues. As a reminder, we are charging for half a year, after not having charged any dues during the preceding 18 months. Our costs of operation did not disappear, and we are counting on you to help us make ends meet. Your payment of $ 30 can be e-transferred to applewoodtreasurer@gmail.com

 

While Zoom has been wonderful in helping to keep our social thread together, it is not the same as shaking hands. I urge you to consider attending our next meeting in person, all of us look forward to seeing you again, and while you are at it, bring a friend along!

 

Be well, and look forward to seeing you soon.

 

Jim Carmichael

President
