I hope this message finds you and yours healthy and well. If you have not yet heard, we will start holding “in person meetings” for March. During the first meeting we plan to kick the rust off and get back in the swing of holding face to face meetings. The second meeting we are planning on holding a few EA degrees. We have quite a backlog of degree work to do. During our down time we have had FC’s waiting patiently for the next step, an EA ready to give his Proficiency and move to FC, and we have Candidates who have knocked on the door and are ready to start the Degrees.
We still have a pandemic raging around us. Just because we are done with it, it is not done with us. With that in our minds we need to meet carefully. Masks must be worn at all times. We are blessed with a beautiful, historic building with a room that will let us social distance and we should use the full area to spread out. Caution and prudence should be our guide in this endeavor. If you are not feeling well, feel any worry about gathering in person, or have any other concerns please wait and join us when you feel safer. Masonry will still be here for all when this pandemic has passed.
On a last note, we will continue to have our 4th Monday Zoom calls. These calls are a way for all to have Fellowship with their Brethren. It has been a great tool for us to stay on contact, keep each other safe, and keep our fraternity strong and we shall continue to use it.
Stay safe and healthy.
Drew Albrecht, WM
