important noticeDue to a members objection that there was insufficient notification for the nominations of local lodge Recording Secretary, and one Trustee position, the award of the Recording Secretary position to Denise Schoonmaker has been put on hold.

correctionDue to an editorial malfunction, there will not be an election for the remaining L.L. Trustee position at the next regular meeting in September. The Executive Board will discuss and advise the membership how and when the nominations and election will proceed.
Again, an apology for the error, and any confusion it may have caused.
