Keeping in Touch during these trying times
To help members keep in touch now that our meetings and events have been cancelled, we have created our own Facebook page that all members are encouraged to join. Simply search Facebook for Forresters Beach Probus and request to join the group. Bard has made the first post explaining the purpose of the group. The Website will continue to be updated but the Facebook group allows for two way communication during this difficult time.
For those members not on Facebook, you will first need to create a Facebook account. This can be done by visiting Facebook.com with your internet browser and providing a name and either email address or mobile phone number.
Changes have been made to the process for making an EFT payment to the Club.
All Events will be assigned a 3 character code and this must be used when making an EFT payment to the Club. Members need to enter this code together with their surname in the payment description e.g. 220 Thomas. EFT Codes will be shown for every Club Event advertised on the website.
Please only pay for one event in a payment or reconciliation becomes very difficult.
Please DO NOT email Treasurer or Convenor regarding an EFT payment as the Treasurer will notify the Convenor based on the Code entered.
No receipts will be issued by the Club for EFT payments. Your receipt will be your entry on your Bank Statement.
