COVID-19 Update
 
Like most other organizations, our Council had to cancel or postpone most events over the past year due to restrictions imposed by government because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, our Council officers continued to meet regularly, both virtually and in person, and our Council remained active by helping out with food drives, food banks, meals for first-responders and the needy, and in a variety of other ways, mostly behind the scenes.
 
As restrictions are lifted and the pandemic subsides, we will be gradually resuming our fraternal and charitable events. We expect that we'll be able to announce dates for upcoming events in the near future. Please watch our calendar and social media sites for updates on events.

IMPORTANT: News and Communications Policy Update
 
Due to the ever-changing nature of communications technology, this news page will only be used as a secondary source of information for urgent communications to members and for general reference. Here is how you can keep up with what's going on with our busy council!
 
EMAIL
 
Primary communication to all Council members and Ladies Auxiliary members will be through email. To receive our newsletter ("The Lake Current") and other information, you must sign up for our email list with our webmaster. Email him by clicking here and ask to be added to the email list.
 
If you are not receiving our emails and have provided your email address to our webmaster, check your "Spam" or "Junk" folder for our emails. If you find our emails in there, consult your email provider for how to "white list" our email address so our messages are delivered to your Inbox. If you are not receiving our emails and they are not in your spam/junk folder, email our webmaster with your address. We have several dozen bad email addresses on file that need updating!
 
Please note that Gmail may also be sending our emails to folders other than your Inbox, such as your "Social" folder, without you knowing about it. So take a look at your Gmail folders and if you find them in one other than Inbox or Spam, you can stop them being re-routed by going into your Gmail settings and under Inbox select "Override filters."
 
You do not need to be a member to receive our newsletter. Just send us your email to be added to our list.
 
NOTE: If you unsubscribed from our Constant Contact email list at any time, we cannot add your email address back to the list without you providing permission directly to our email vendor. To re-subscribe, just click here and insert your email address and name. 
 
EVENTS CALENDAR 
 
A current list of all upcoming events is maintained on our Council's Google Calendar. Please refer to our calendar to know what's going on! You may view the calendar by clicking the Upcoming Events tab on our web page. For ease of access and event reminders, bookmark that page and/or add our calendar to your personal calendar on your smart phone. Instructions on how to subscribe to our calendar appear on our Upcoming Events page.
 
During the COVID-19 shutdown, our Council calendar is not being updated regularly. Once we are able to resume group activities, we will begin rescheduling events and updating the calendar.
 
 
SOCIAL MEDIA
 
Facebook and Twitter allow us to communicate with our members and friends in fast and cost-efficient manner. All council events (fundraisers, social functions, etc.) will be listed as "Events" on our Facebook page. Pictures from past events will be posted on Facebook.
 
Please "like" our Facebook page to see all of our posts in your timeline! Please "like" and share our posts to help them gain maximum exposure to all of our members.
