$85 Dues For Our Year Starting 1 April 2021 Your Board of Directors has confirmed that dues for our next year will remain at $85. We are hopeful that we will be able to meet live again sometime this fall. When we do start live meetings, our costs will be going up since Trinity Church will be increasing our hall rental fee plus implementing a special Covid cleaning fee.
There are two ways to pay your dues.
eTransfer: Send an eTransfer for $85 to our email address: email@example.comThis is the easiest option since your fee will be automatically deposited directly into the club bank account.
Cheque: Mail a cheque for $85 made out to Royal City Men's Club. The mailing address is:
Royal City Men's Club, Suite 755, 3-304 Stone Road West, Guelph, ON N1G 4W5
Your payment is due in April, however, the e-Transfer is available starting immediately. Thank you for all those who have already paid. This includes a special thanks for those who have paid even though they do not often participate in the Zoom meetings. Your support of the club during these challenging times is much appreciated.
As soon as conditions allow, we will start live lectures at Trinity plus we will be restarting Activities so we are looking forward to a year where we gradually get back to normal. In the meantime, our great lectures will continue via Zoom.
Your Board of Directors
To Our Members,
Royal City Men’s Club - Update Related to COVID-19 - Updated 7 March 2021
In line with guidelines from the government and public health professionals, Royal City Men’s Club continues to cancel all "live" lectures, activities and coffee club get-togethers until further notice. We anticipate that we will be able to reconsider live lectures sometime in the fall of 2021.
In the meantime, we are continuing to offer "virtual" meetings where speakers give "virtual" presentation using Zoom. Also, on alternative Thursdays, 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 (login open at 9:30 am). In order to simplify Zoom logins, everyone will be sent a single link which will apply to all these meetings.
If you have not been participating in these Zoom meetings, they are now running very smoothly. If you need assistance with Zoom, we can provide some training. Please let us know.
We thank you for your understanding and patience. 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.
Check it frequently if your age group is not yet listed.

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.
