Hello to all! This month’s article will be short due to the “sheltered – in - place” order because of the COVID Pandemic.
On March 21, 2020 our Scheduled March Grand Council Meeting we had a Webinar Conference call put together by Leadership Chairperson Mark Rossi and Webmaster Anna Graeber. They did a wonderful job with such a short notice. There were sixteen plus members connected to the conference call. For the first-time the meeting went fairly-well with some issues in connecting. Two conference calls; one on April 5th and one on April 11, 2020 with Grand Council members. Lots of work was accomplished, with some discussion on some of the pertinent issues.
Thank you to seven of my appointed State Deputies that have taken the time sending their quarterly report on the lodges to which they are assigned. This information is extremely important in order to keep the area Vice President and Grand Lodge updated on the Lodges activities, successful events or any problems that may occur within the lodge.
I’d like to remined all members to be respectful to their lodge President, assigned State Deputy and / or any member or guest that may be speaking or giving a report at their lodge meetings or events. Also, a fraternal suggestion for lodges that are planning special event such as Columbus Day Celebration. To try to work with each other on a date that you may pick so that you can support each other’s event. It’s so much nicer when Lodges can support each other’s events or have a joint event if possible. Hopefully this “lockdown” will soon be over, and we can get back to business as usual.
Many blessings to you and your families throughout this Easter season.
Ciao, until next month.
