OF LODGE 2030 WELCOME YOU!
Keyport-Matawan Members, Your Families, and Guests,
I want to first thank everyone for trusting in me to lead the lodge as Exalted Ruler for the fraternal year. You will know that I will be giving it my all throughout the year to make our lodge the very best in the state. Our committees are some of the best, and we can make them the strongest with everyone's help during the year.
The start of the year has been a challenging one, with the Covid-19 epidemic. We have cancelled events and had to close our lounge, and are waiting to get a date on when we can opening back up for our members and get back to raising money for all of our charities. Although we are starting behind the 8-ball, I know that when we all pull together, we will shine and reach the goals that we have set this year.
Even though we are closed, there are still things happening at the lodge to help get it ready for the opening. The barchair has been working with the distributors to make sure our product will be fresh for us to enjoy. He will also be working on cleaning and freshening up the bar area and the hall in the upcoming weeks. Please reach out to PVP Steve at 732-865-5861 if you are able tot help. Both PER Kevin and myself have gone to the lodge to make sure the grass is cut and the outside is kept neat. Also I want to say thank you to PER Rich and his wife Dawn for doing a clean-up when we first closed.
Sadly the state convention was cancelled this year. All deposits are being refunded and mail out to those who gave one. We will work on next year, and try and get it set up early. Let's try and fill the hotel. Besides the state convention, the National one was cancelled as well. Any information that is usually handed out and discussed at those sessions, I will pass it on to the lodge when I receive it.
We are still holding our meetings each month via Zoom. It is open to any member in good standing, so if you have not paid your dues yet, please send them in. If our secretary does not have your email address, you will not be able to receive the invite and join the meeting. If you have any questions, please email Heather at email@example.com and she will be able to help you out.
If there are any other questions or concerns that you have, please contact me and I will try and help you, or will find the answer together. Let's have the greatest year for our lodge, our families, our charities, and for our community. Be safe and god bless,
Michael J, Rose
