If you have not been to the Lodge recently, you should come on down and see our “home
improvements.” Specifically, we have new curtains and lights in the two windows that are in the dining
room/lodge room portion of the building. The first four windows as you enter the building have new faux
wood blinds and valances and really look sharp. We also now have signage out front on U.S. Highway
1. My sincere thanks to all Members who have helped on these projects. Together, we can accomplish much.
The Trustees have approved construction of the interior wall at the entrance to the Lodge room. As we go
to press, the work has begun, and this addition will afford us the opportunity to make a real impression on
candidates as they progress thru the initiation ritual. Further, we can now segregate different events in
the Lodge. In conjunction with this work, the banners proclaiming us as the home Lodge of the District
Deputy and District Vice-President have been moved to the West Lodge room wall. Again, I encourage you to come down and see what is happening at YOUR Lodge.
As we roll into the Fall, we are adjusting our business model somewhat to more closely align with the times in which we live. The House Committee has come up with several Simple meal alternatives to the big sit-down events that I think you will enjoy. There is a lot of variety of food available. Please see page three for more information. I am happy to report to you that our By-Laws revisions have been approved by the Grand Lodge Judiciary Committee. As a subordinate Lodge, we are required to update the By-Laws every five years. Please join me in thanking PDD Bill Orblych and PER Al Renzi for their efforts in this regard.
We continue to sanitize the Lodge after each social session, cleaning all bar/table surfaces. Our cleaning company sanitizes the chair backs and seats each week. I encourage all to remember the “social distancing” that is so important in these Covid times. The health and safety of our Members is paramount. Until next month, God Bless America and each of you.
