It feels as though it has been forever since we have been able meet in person, but as of June 1st that thankfully is at an end! All lodge functions are being returned to us the craft from Grand Lodge WITH some conditions. They want us to practice safe social distancing guidelines, they want us to provide hand sanitizer (Thank you W. Brewer for that wonderful donation), disposable gloves, and masks (Custom Phoenix ones WILL be available for $10 Tuesday the 2nd). I have asked our Junior Warden to go back to disposable plates, cups, and silverware for the time being I still believe he will rise to the occasion and continue to provide outstanding table side meals.
Having said ALL of this, I want you to understand that as much as I desire to see all of you again, you should in no way feel obligated to return to Lodge if YOU feel unsafe or have a health concern. No one is going to harass or bully you for taking your health into consideration. We will miss you and desire to see you as soon as you are ready.
For those of you in need I again implore you to reach out to myself or ANY of the officers in line and we will do everything in our power to help, aid, and assist you! As always I hope you and your family are doing well, and I look forward to seeing you in person June 2nd at 6:30 for dinner.
