Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We are approaching the New Year, and we’ll be putting 2021 behind us. I really don’t want to dwell on COVID anymore; we’ve all had our fill of it. But a booster shot is recommended and readily available.
Again, I send kudos to all the lodge presidents that have gone that extra mile to keep their membership informed, interested and involved.
Hopefully all chairs of committees that were instituted at our last GL Meeting have held their first meeting. Please make sure you have minutes of your meetings to forward to me to read prior to our Grand Lodge meeting In February.
Supreme has updated the Supreme General Laws with all previous and new revisions. This is available on the osia.org Website. We also will be updating our Grand lodge by-laws soon, now that Supreme has updated theirs; we can compare to make sure there is no conflict between the General Laws of the Order and our by-law revisions that were ratified.
Our next Trimester meeting will be held in Melbourne FL at the Hilton Rialto Hotel. Further information will be emailed and posted on our Website: osiaflorida.org
The following planned trimester meeting is scheduled for June 24th and 25th, 2022, at the Hilton Orlando/Altamonte Springs.
There is talk about a Grand Lodge meeting in October on a Cruise ship as we did a few years back. This would be a way to enjoy a little mini vacation and conduct official OSIA business.
Sister Jennifer Santos is working with Ed Mottola on details.
Sister Carolyn will be hosting another Zoom Training class soon for ALL lodge Orators covering position responsibilities and by-laws changes and updates. Details will be emailed out.
Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season and a blessed Christmas!.
OSIA Grand Lodge of FL
Grand Lodge President
