Brethren, family members and friends of Tyrian Lodge, we received word that we can resume meetings at the Lodge. As wonderful as this sounds the news comes with mandatory restrictions that severely limit what we can do. As for now these restrictions are in place until October 28th. We can’t prepare any meals in the Lodge, no buffet lines, only disposable dinnerware can be used and any food catered must be in sealed packages placed on the tables in advance. In my view, this places to much responsibility and pressure on our stewards. Therefore, we will conduct the business of the Lodge, within the edict of Grand Lodge, without fellowship dinners until further notice. I will open the Lodge on 6/23/2020 at 7:30 PM and hold a meeting for just the officers of the Lodge. This meeting will allow us to plan a way forward from now until the 28th of October. Our first full meeting will be held 7/14/2020. When attending, all members must wear a mask and gloves. Social distancing will be enforced, no physical contact is allowed. Only business of the Lodge is permitted and meetings are to be as short as possible. No esoteric work is to be done. I am saddened that because of this pandemic we must function under these restrictions, but exited to be able to return to the lodge with all of you. With perseverance, hard work and the grace of God we will come through this stronger and healthier than before.
