Welcome to Summer everyone. Since our organization is probably going to be part of phase 3 of the reopening of our community we will not be meeting in person this month. Not a bunch of news to talk about this month. I hope all of you are safe and getting outside during the beautiful weather we have had in the last week. Just a thought, less than 3 weeks ago it was snowing!
The AOH national convention will be held in July in Orlando, Florida. Anyone interested in attending let me know.
During our time in hibernation, Tom Kelly has been trying to stay updated on the charity offerings that we make each year. With the pandemic, some of the donations that are made at this time needed to be made. I did give the ok for Tom to make the donations. These will be reviewed at our next meeting.
Again, if anyone needs any assistance, trouble paying their dues, need a ride, please contact me.
Our annual Picnic is scheduled for Ross Park in July. I will keep you updated on if we will have the event. The hall remains closed until further notice. Joe Mihalko has been keeping up to date with any updates from the county and the state on the reopening. Hopefully, sometime in June we can enjoy each other’s company at the hall. Social Distancing will be in effect.
We continue to be in times never seen in our lifetime. It is better to be safe than suffer the agony that this pandemic can bring. Please everyone, as we continue to reopen our lives, let us take small steps to ensure that we safe and healthy.
Until next time in our Motto of Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity
