Dear Sisters and Brothers

We have had our first discussion with our 2021 Proud to Be session venue The Essex in Essex, Vermont and believe that we will be able to hold a one day session at their location. At this time, we are moving forward with the assumption that attendance will be limited to 75 people to ensure the ability to properly social distance. As such, attendance to the Session will be by invitation only. A separate invitation will be sent for the 2021-2022 “The Sunny Side of Life” Installation. Should the maximum be increased, we will continue to send invitations for attendance. This is to ensure that those with roles in the Session are able to attend. It includes the 2018-2021 General Grand Chapter Committee Members, 2019-2021 Grand Officers and District Deputy Grand Instructors, 2021-2022 Grand Officers, Jurisprudence, Registration and Credentials, Parliamentarian, Installing Suite and Home Board and partners or escorts not already included in one of the other lists.

The tentative schedule will be provided at a later date. Please note that there will not be a basket raffle. If you are not on the invitation list, you will still be able to attend virtually via YouTube on a private channel. This information will be provided when we get closer to the date. We encourage our members to attend virtually if they can.

Please note that this is subject to change based on the State guidance. Again, thank you for your patience as we move through these unchartered times. We are working hard to ensure that what we are doing is best for our members and our Order.

Should an urgent matter arise during this period, please contact either myself or Sister Jerri K. Riegler, Past Grand Matron, Grand Secretary via phone or e-mail.

Please be attentive to our elderly members and check in on them frequently as they are the group that will be the hardest hit. When there is a change in our status, we will notify the membership accordingly. Please stay safe and healthy! We look forward to seeing you soon!

Stay Home – Stay Connected – Stay Safe – Stay Strong – STAY POSITIVE!

Proud To Be,

Jacqueline (Jacque) M. Shiner
