A MESSAGE FROM NATIONAL COUNCILOR RICHARD BEPPLER: March 19, 2020
Greetings to all members of the Jr. Order United American Mechanics
In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic which has gripped our nation, I as your National Councilor, am hereby suspending all meetings and functions of all Jr. Order Lodges throughout our order. Effective immediately all regular Council meetings will be suspended through April 30th, 2020. Also any and all planned functions such as dinners, banquets, State Sessions or Conventions are suspended for the same period. We will continue to monitor the national policies put into play regarding the restrictions on gatherings and inform all members of any further restriction in the future.
It is with great sadness I find these steps necessary to help curtail the spread of this terrible virus and insure the well-being of our membership of whom many are in the age bracket most vulnerable to the dire effects if contracting the virus. I ask all to join me in prayer for any we may know who has been afflicted with this virus.
I welcome any contact or correspondence from any of our members seeking further information on this or any issues. My contact address, phone and email are listed above.
In loving service,
Richard A. Beppler
