Submitted to the PROBUS Global Newsletter, Spring 2022.

Our club is situated in Leuven, a university city in Flanders, Belgium. We were founded in 2005 and we count at this moment 36 members, with 32 partners and 9 widows of deceased members. At this moment we are a men’s club, but we hope that we will change that in the future.

I have had the honour of being their president for the last four years.

During the Covid intermezzi we stopped our reunions in March 2020, and restarted in July 2021 till November 2021. We are going to restart now in March, when we can finally make the transition of the presidency.

During the lock-down periods we had several Zoom meetings on several subjects. Also I wrote every month a long letter by mail about the covid news and the news about our members, and a few jokes as a final touch. Every two months I had a telephone marathon with all the members and their partners as well with the 9 widows.

In January 2021 and 2022 we brought with the members or our board to all our members and the widows a bottle of Cava and a nice box of Belgian chocolates.

All this was highly appreciated  and the close ties between us kept intact.

We were lucky that we did not lose any of our members from Covid during these years.

With the best Probus greetings to you all,

Hari Jacobs

(still) President Probus Leuven
