Club Operations Opening of our Lodge is guided by reopening rules set by the state, and our service will continue to be expanded as allowed by law. The number of days and hours we open will be largely determined by usage of the facilities by our members. If there are enough members utilizing our restaurant service, we can expand hours and days of operation, but if the facility is largely vacant, then those hours will be reduced. Most members are aware that alcohol consumption in the Lodge requires purchase of food, as is the case for every other restaurant or business that serves alcohol. We hope that the governor will soon allow regular bar service, but as of 4/04/2021, that is not the case. The Lodge has hired a cook to permit food service while we are open. Please come in and use his services, the food is excellent. We are exploring more food options to allow us to be open longer which may include prepackaged prepared sandwiches, salads, etc. If you have suggestions for offerings that you would prefer, please let us know. We are aware that Sunday brunches were very popular. Our plan is to reestablish brunches starting 4/11/2021. We are aware that it is a lot to ask volunteers to be available every Sunday, so each week may be run by a different committee. The profit may be just for the Lodge, or could be ENF, PER, or Major Projects committees running a brunch. We will try to keep the meal options as consistent as possible, but there may also be specials. Please be patient while we trial this new way of serving Sunday brunch, and please come down and support the Lodge. You never know what charity you may be supporting when you come in!
