2019-2020 had many exciting events planned however due to COVID-19 we have suspended all face to face gatherings with large groups however small groups are meeting face to face following COVID-19 protocols while others are meeting virtually utilizing our Comox Valley Probus Club Zoom Account.
Club Activities are one of the main attractions in any club, and ours is no different. We currently have some great activities, but it is always good to keep things fresh by entertaining new interests as well.  Any Probus member can present an idea for an activity.  Any and all ideas are welcomed. Unfortunately we have had to cancel most indoor activities until further notice due to COVID-19 however some groups have been creative and meet virtually. Outside activity groups are starting up on a limited basis in accordance with the Safety Plan now available. Contact the Executive Committee if you are looking for more information on this exciting start up plan.  We can’t wait to get back together as a large group in person but our focus is on staying strong and healthy so social distancing is a priority. Our General Meetings are being held virtually utilizing our Club Zoom Account.  All members are invited to attend these meetings!
 
Contact our club if you have any questions.  Our club normally meets the 3rd Wednesday morning at 10 am at the Westerley Hotel on Cliffe Ave. We have suspended face to face large group meetings due to COVID-19 and hope to resume in due course, depending on the Government and Health safety guidelines for large group meetings. We are however meeting in a virtual environment utilizing our Club Zoom Account for large groups as well as small groups.  Join us every month! Stay strong and stay safe!

Welcome to the Home Page of the Comox Valley Probus Club, located here in Courtenay.  We are all going through significant challenges during this pandemic and the need to cancel all large group face to face meetings. We are however now utilizing Zoom for meetings which can accommodate up to 100 participants.  Members will be sent an invitation to attend with a password.  Needless to say this is an unfortunate situation for a club that is designed for camaraderie and social interaction through club activities and meetings that host guest speakers who never disappoint.  We are always interested in new members however and if you would like to join us and become part of our club please contact our President Carol Coupland or Membership Director Jean Douglas.
 
Our activity groups are beginning to take advantage of virtual group meetings utilizing software like Zoom or FaceTime and other internet apps.  We are also meeting face to face with small groups utilizing our club protocols for COVID 19. 
 
Another positive situation, Courtenay Downtown business are adapting to new protocols in order to continue to operate and serve the public. For example, restaurants and shops are taking online orders for curb pick up, as do many of our grocery stores in the Valley.  Continue with our social distancing to stay healthy and please make sure you get lots of fresh air every day.  So get outside, practicing social distancing and enjoy the summer weather and all the flowers adding lovely colours to our day.
 
Our Probus face to face general meetings have been cancelled until further notice however we are now utilizing Zoom for large group meetings.  If you need any assistance to utilize Zoom please contact your Executive for support and training.  Stay safe everyone but call or email your friends or neighbours to check in on them.  Everyone needs a laugh or just a hello to know we are still here for each other.
