Issue 4 - 27 April 2020
Welcome to Issue 4 of Staying Connected. Self isolation has been the way of life for many weeks now and we thought it is a good time to evaluate the kind of activities you are doing at home and also provide some ideas to keep you busy and connected with others. To get you further motivated, we have set a challenge to encourage you to consider doing as many of these activities as possible during the month of May. Don't forget to share this E-newsletter with other Club members so they too can join the #PROBUSMAYCHALLENGE
