60th Degree Society Membership
Greetings and continued good health to everyone as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to unfold.
It has been a difficult time for our membership. There has been no personal face to face interaction since March 11, 2020.
Here we are approaching the end of August and, as everyone is well aware, Covid-19 is still creating havoc in our community.
It appears that the Ontario government is slowly lifting regulations pertaining to gathering in groups (currently Phase 3) and this could potentially allow us to meet. There is one caveat however, the Oakville Banquet Hall remains closed to everyone until further notice due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
As usual, Leo Topolniski has risen to the lack of meeting challenge. How, Leo invites everyone to bring their chair and coffee to Coronation Park and join in the camaraderie. Remember, bring your mask and practice social distancing. Commencing August 31, to October 2, 2020, meetings will be on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s at 9:00am weather permitting. If you would like to attend, please email Leo at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will allow Leo to organize the circle to permit social distancing.
Not to be outdone, Brian Dobson is also willing to arrange mass and breakfast meetings on Wednesday for members who wish to participate. Brian, what is the attendance limitation for the breakfast? If you would like Brian to provide this function, please contact him at email email@example.com
I am reiterating the remainder of the year schedule of events, but no guarantees as to the viability of these events occurring.
In September, we have 2 general meetings and a Bunko/Potluck event. The Potluck always showcases the spectacular culinary efforts of the attendees and a epicurean delight for the participants.
In October, what can I say? Oktoberfest and 2 general meetings. This event is always well attended, with an enjoyable festive Bavarian menu and beer (of course) lending to its authenticity.
In November, we have 2 general meetings and a Bunko/Potluck event.
In December, 1 general meeting and our Christmas Party. What can I say but thank you to the organizing committee members who go all out to ensure that the 60th Degree Society closes the year with an enjoyable feast and dancing.
I continue to wish everyone and their families, friends and relatives continued good health as we endure this pandemic.
A special thank you to our Director of Communications, Al Oatridge who keeps us up-to-date on the Covid-19 watch.
Best regards and stay safe.
