    I am with the Newmarket Probus Club in Newmarket, Ontario and a member of Probus Global. Our club has gone international with our meetings since July 2020, with as many as 40 international guests attending our meetings from India to Australia. This month we have our club meeting on 20th and a Probus Global meeting on 28th focused on Australia.
    We are trying to reach as many countries as we can where Probus has members.
    We have a segment in our meetings called Who Am I, a 10 minute presentation on club and community. Last month we had a guest from Scotland, this month Britain and February India.
    We would like to invite any Probus members to these meetings. I have attached our club’s website.
    The fellowship generated by these meetings has been outstanding.

    Banchory Men’s Probus Club, Banchory, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
    Hello all
    I’ve just recently registered our club with ‘Probusonline’ and am finding my way around the site.
    We are a Male Probus Club, founded in 1989, and have 48 members. We have a Ladies Probus Club in the ‘village’ as well, with about the same membership as ours.
    We have been ‘virtually’ meeting these past few months. Twice a month, using ‘Zoom’.
    In my travels around the site I noticed this ‘chat’ area, with nobody chatting, so I thought I would just say a few words by way of a ‘hello’.
    If you ever find yourself in the Banchory area, or even elsewhere, and would like to visit one of our meetings please contact me – you are welcome at any time to sttend one of our ‘virtual’ meetings, as my guest.
    Best regards
    Stan Thomson, Secretary, Banchory Men’s Probus Club

        Hi Alison, I’ve been out of the site for a wee while. Are you OK for Wednesday? President Ian and I have both sent you e-mails but I think you may not be monotoring the ‘editor’ email address these days – or that, and our e-mails have gone into your ‘Junk’ folder!
        Can you advise which e-mail address Ian should send your ‘invite’ to?
        If you would like a trial run let me know and we can do that before Wednesday.
        Look forward to seing you then

        Is it I, am I in the wrong place, or has the chat line not been active much in recent weeks?
        Also, I remember being in another couple of chat areas which I now can’t find my way back to!.

        Your advice would be welcome – thank you.
