SIR Update

Article Source: SIR

Exciting News: At the June 2nd SIR Board meeting, a unanimous decision was reached that our Members of Branch 4 will be meeting “In-person” Wednesday, August 4th, 2021.

 We are thrilled that we will be gathering in-person for the first time since March 2020 and will be able to be with and interact with our friends once again.

There will be protocols that each of us will be required to follow to ensure the safety and well-being of our members. These rules are required by our State organization and the Federal CDC.

1.       Proof of vaccination – each member must show their card at the Badge Table upon entrance to the Elks Lodge building. A system will be devised so the proof is shown only once.

2.       Masked? At this writing, we recommend that members wear their masks when not eating or drinking.  That requirement may change if circumstances allow.

SIR Branch 4 Board Meeting:  Further details will be discussed and planned during the next Zoom Board meeting, Wednesday, July 7th. At 10:30AM.

You are welcome to attend this meeting:  email George Suter at sutergeo80@gmail.com -

Subject “SIR business” to receive an invite.
