    • Not a lot of concern currently.
    • Discussion regarding whether we can utilize some of the donated funds toward purchasing prizes for the prize table.

Indoor/In Person Meetings

  • District has circulated a document advising of guidelines to follow for In-Person/Hybrid meetings.
    • Recommending all attendees be fully vaccinated.
    • Assistance to conduct hybrid meeting will be forthcoming.
  • Douglas has informed the club that the Masons would like to know if we would like to resume our meetings in the Masonic Hall. Another group is interested in the space on Tuesday nights. They are giving us the opportunity to decline first. They are willing to give us a break on rent.
    • Because we haven’t done any fundraising in a year (or more?) we don’t have any money for rent.
    • To conduct hybrid meetings, we would need internet access. Don’t know if Masonic Hall has this capability or not.
  • George’s Restaurant has also offered their side room to conduct meetings.
    • Rent free.
    • Concern over the lack of privacy.
    • Here again, we don’t know if WiFi is available for us to conduct hybrid meetings.
  • General consensus is that the club members would prefer Masonic Lodge, but concern whether Masons would be willing to rent to us only once or twice a month.
  • Douglas will investigate with the Masons regarding WiFi at their facility including, if necessary us paying for the WiFi.
  • Another option for us is the ELNOS boardroom.
  • Dave will investigate to see if George’s Restaurant has WiFi.
  • A decision will have to be made at the next meeting.
