Subject: Lodge Operations Update

Dear Lodge Members:

As you may have heard, St. Louis County Executive Sam Page has issued a new health order (here). Similar to the previous orders the Lodge is subject to this new order, which takes effect Tuesday, 17 Nov., 2020, and is to last for four (4) weeks, at which time it will be re-evaluated by the County. Unfortunately, this means the interior of the Lodge is closed effective Tuesday, 17 Nov., 2020. This also means any general Lodge meetings between Tuesday, 17 Nov., 2020, through 15 December, 2020, are cancelled. Further, the planned November steak night is also cancelled. On balance there are too many logistical issues under the new order to address on such short notice to proceed with the event.
One piece of good news:  we have a general Lodge meeting scheduled for Monday, 16 Nov., 2020, at 6:30pm, with an initiation. This will be operating under the current regulations.
All we can do at this point is wait it out and hope the situation has improved within four (4) weeks. On behalf of the Administration we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and hope to see you all again soon.
Benjamin L. Yousef, Esq.
Chairman, Board of Directors
