Nobles and Ladies,
With the Governor relaxing some restrictions in 77 counties I wanted to update everyone on what is will be happening at El Kahir going forward for the May and the start of June.
Currently with the latest information the I am ordering the following actions for El Kahir:
- All unit/club or other meetings and any events
- Meetings and events in the 22 counties that have been identified to remain under restrictions will be cancelled for the month of May.
- Meetings and events that would be held in one of the 77 counties that have been identified for relaxed restrictions may have their May meeting only if:
Telephone or web meeting where all participants are separate will be allowed and encouraged, I have authorized the purchase of a Zoom subscription for web meetings. Please contact Recorder Noble Rick Bowersox to use the application.The May Stated Meeting is cancelled.The Potentate's Ball scheduled for May 2nd has been postponed until August 29th. More information will be communicated going forward. The Shrine Center will remain closed and locked for the month of May. Shriner Awareness on June 6th has been postponed and more information will be communicated when a new date has been booked.Since Strawberry Point cancelled Strawberry days, the Caravan has been cancelled for June 13th and I will try to find another date to have a Caravan if parades are allowed this year.The Shrine Picnic for June 13th has been postponed (since Caravan is cancelled). More information will be communicated when a new date has been booked.
- 1. There is a need for the meeting.
- 2. they are able to ensure that they are following all social distancing and legal restrictions put in place by the state of Iowa
I will continue to update you as decisions and steps are made as we move forward. My goal is to make the best decision that I can to protect the Shrine Nobles and Ladies. If we all take care and follow the distancing guidelines, I know that we all will get through this and be stronger for it.
Yours in the Faith
