The COVID-19 lockdown put the kibosh on large face-to-face meetings in Dubbo and elsewhere in Australia.
But families, friends, businesses and community organisations like the Rotary Club of Dubbo South have managed to "stay in touch".
Since mid-April the club has been having virtual meetings with "attendance continuing to gain strength".
From their own homes, members are using the popular video-conferencing technology called Zoom to make contact.
Club president Brett McCarthy has provided a progress report on the virtual meetings.
"There is still plenty of information shared and discussion on a range of topics," he said.
"There is fun and banter and a chance for some people to share their COVID-19 stories.
"More importantly, it ensures our members stay in touch and continue that social interaction that is vital to our mental health and overall well-being."
Club secretary Tony Speirs is helping other members get the hang of Zoom.
"It is certainly a different way to conduct our meetings but I believe the members have embraced the concept wholeheartedly and continued on with goodwill and fellowship," he said.
