Wardens and Brethren,
First off, I hope everyone has been in good health and taking the proper precautions to stay healthy. Also, I know this can be a very stressful time for some in many different ways, so if there is anything that Franklin Lodge or I can do to help, I'm only a phone call, email, or text away. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (401)644-4525
Now on to the business. Not too long ago I sent out an email to the Franklin lodge google group giving an update on how lodges are to proceed for the time being. If you do not get the messages from the Franklin group or would like to be added, now is the time to be added. Please reach out to myself or our Secretary WB. Dan Rzewuski if you need to be added.
Franklin Lodge will be having a meeting this month, just not meeting physically at the lodge. Grand Master has set forth that lodges are to meet virtually. So, on our normal day and time, Tuesday April 14th at 7pm Franklin will meet via video conference, utilizing Zoom. For those getting this message via email just click https://zoom.us/j/476941810?pwd=bUloeHhCNytqMmFpTVc1UEhma0toQT09 or copy and paste into your browser and use password franklin. I would suggest joining 5-10 minutes before the start of the meeting. As a reminder from the email sent out, the top 5 officers are required for the virtual meetings, the WM, SW, JW, Tres, Sec, but I would love to be able to see as many brethren as possible on our virtual meeting.
Honestly, I would never have thought we would be holding a virtual lodge meeting, so I think this will be a learning experience for all of us. If this is going to be continuing through the next couple months, I am going to be trying to work on some sort of program that can be presented over a video conference.
May the Blessings of Heaven rest upon us,
Franklin Lodge #20
