Okay, what month is this? They keep running together, I am being very optimistic that we will once again, shortly, be able to meet in person. As we enter into the winter months, please everyone stay well and safe. Get you flu shots, and wear that mask. It’s almost second nature for all of us to have that mask when we leave the house, and have extras in the car now. Who would have thought…
We were able to conduct a Grand Council meeting on October 10th virtually. Thank you to all the officers and members who participated. I am still planning on meeting in person for the March Grand Council meeting, fingers and toes crossed.
As lodges begin to elect officers for the new term ahead please review the letter that sent out from our Judiciary Committee. Please send any questions or comments to myself or Al.
Some lodges in various counties have been getting together, practicing social distancing and keeping the quantity of people to a minimum. I have heard some lodges are doing takeout meals for their members and communities. Some are meeting outdoors with everyone bringing their own food & drink. And there are the lodges doing the Zoom meetings / dinners. These are all great ways of staying in contact with our members.
November starts the months of holidays and family gatherings. Please follow the rules that your county government has set up. This, as I had stated in the past is very different for all of us. Another holiday that is celebrated in November is Veterans Day. I along with Donna lee would like o express our sincere gratitude to all of our retired and currently active Military for your service. Without you we would not have what we have today. THANK YOU for your service and sacrifices!!
First Lady Donna Lee and I wish all of you and your families a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday. Please be careful and safe.
So again I state…until our State Officials give us an ok to meet, let’s continue to wear a mask, and follow the guidelines set up by our elected officials. Let’s continue the open communication with our members. We still need to error on the side of caution, due to the age of our organization.
So continue those phone calls to our members, feel free to contact me also with any questions or comment or concerns.
We will beat this Together!!! Stay safe!
