I hope that this month’s message finds you all safe, in good health, good spirits and enjoying the hot summer weather. As you know we reopened the
Lodge to our members on Monday June 15th. We continue to comply with the State of Ohio’s social distancing guidelines and cleanliness protocols. I can say with confidence that the Lodge is as safe as we can make it and encourage all of our members to come in and socialize with a cold beverage of your choice and support our Lodge.
The trustees are still working to develop plans for limited food services that are both safe and cost effective. Unfortunately I have nothing definitive to share with you at this time. Details as well as plans for future events will be posted to our Facebook page, website and communicated via email as soon as they become available
As we move towards fall there is still uncertainty as to the state of Big 10 and N.F.L. football. Let’s hope that workable plans are put in place soon so we can enjoy Ohio State and Brown’s football games at the Lodge.
During these unique times we are offered an opportunity to reflect on those things that are important in our lives; God, family, friends and country. It is equally important that based on our ability to do so lend a helping hand to those in need. We all need to remember that “Elks Care – Elks Share.”
On behalf of the Officers, Trustees and our employee’s thank you for your cooperation to keep Elyria Elks Lodge 465 safe for our members. As always, please stay safe, look out for family, friends and neighbors and know that you all remain in my thoughts and prayers.
I hope to see you all at the Lodge soon!
Fraternally Yours, Chuck Martin ER
