Stated Meeting Update

Due to complications our candidate for the EA Degree is under self-quarantine therefore we will not be conducting degree work on Tuesday the 19th. In its place we will be conducting a relatively short meeting in person at the Lodge, afterward the officers and I will be working on practicing ritual, etc. Any members interested in attending can use the “Contact” page or email me direct to ensure the current occupancy rules are followed.

Sincerely,

Stated Meeting Update

Brethren,

I hope you all had a great Holiday and have a Happy New Year!

We are going to hold a virtual meeting on January 5th, which is our 1st stated meeting of that month to cover any business as we go forward into the New Year. This will give the Lodge some time to be finished with painting, etc.

For the 2nd stated meeting on January 19th: it is my hope to do an EA Degree solely, with no business being conducted. I’ll update on that status accordingly

Also, the Job’s Daughters are holding their biannual installation virtually via Zoom and have invited Sunrise members to attend. I personally plan on attending and any others wishing to can use the contact page to reach me and I’ll send the link. It takes place on Monday, January 4th at 7:00pm.

Sincerely,

Eric Franklin
