Royal City Men’s Club Cancellations Related to COVID-19 - Updated 29 April 2020
In line with guidelines from the government and public health professionals, Royal City Men’s Club is regretfully cancelling all "live" lectures, activities and coffee club get-togethers until further notice. We anticipate this could be from a several weeks to a few months.
However, we are pleased to announce that we will be offering a limited number of "virtual" meetings where speakers will present a virtual presentation using Zoom. Also, on every Thursday on which we do not have a presenter, we will have a "virtual coffee morning", again using Zoom. Thus there will be either a lecture or a coffee morning very Thurs at 10 am. In order to simplify Zoom logins, everyone will be sent a single link which will apply to all these meetings.
We thank you for your understanding and patience during these uncertain and stressful times. We will continue to communicate via our mailing list and on our website to keep you well informed. There is additional information on the website.
In the meantime, your health is of primary importance and we encourage everyone to follow the advice of the government and health professionals.
R.C.M.C. Board of Directors

About the Club
The Royal City Men's Club meets every second Thursday at 9:30 a.m. in Trinity United Church Hall on Stevenson Street, just south of Speedvale. Guest speakers provide insight into subjects of topical interest. Coffee, tea and cookies are served. Occasionally we will meet at other locations if a tour of a business or institution is scheduled. Potential members may attend up to three meetings before applying to join.
In addition to our regular meetings, we organize activities and special events.
The objectives of the Club are:
to encourage life-long learning by providing a forum for presentations by informed persons on subjects of interest to members
to provide opportunities for men who have retired from full-time employment to exchange information and views on topics of mutual interest
to provide opportunities to participate in social and recreational activities to promote fellowship and enjoyment
to provide opportunities for the formation of enduring friendships.
