I hope this message finds you well! We are in the midst of the lost week between the holidays and the New Year. I’m really not sure what day it is, but I do know that I have been eating plenty. I hope you find yourself in the same situation!

Like almost everything that has happened in 2020, we have had to get creative in how we approached installation this year. Normally, on a Saturday after our last December meeting and before the holidays, we would all gather for a nice meal with our families and friends and then do our annual installation of officers. This wasn’t possible this year, so instead of trying to do an installation on a Zoom meeting, we took the opportunity to bring the installation to you in the form of a movie. I am no Scorsese, so we are using the term “movie” lightly, but I invite you to join us on January 7th at 7:00 pm via Zoom to watch the installation. I will be opening the Zoom call at 6:30 to give the opportunity for prospects to ask any questions and so I can find out what Santa brought you.

To RSVP and receive the Zoom meeting link please contact WB Pablo Colomban

For our second “meeting” in January, Right Worshipful Brother Ray Dunn, who is currently the Senior Grand Warden of the Grand Lodge is going to join us virtually to give us a talk on leadership. The details for this meeting will also be sent out at a later date.

The current status of things in our Country and State are not very conducive to having our normal meetings, but hopefully, things will continue to improve. In the meantime, I will be working to try to create opportunities for us to enjoy fellowship. Whether virtually or being together in person. This is definitely not the way I wanted to start my year in the East, but we’ll be working to make the best of it.

As always, I greatly appreciate all of you and look forward to seeing you soon!
