Hello everyone!
I and am happy to announce that we will be opening up the Lodge again! CDPHE has approved Otero County’s variances. So, there are some new guidelines we will all need to adhere to in order to be in compliance.In accordance with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment as well as Otero County Health Department, anyone entering the building MUST wear a face covering/mask while inside; until seated at a table. No more than 8 people per table. Face coverings/masks MUST also be worn whenever you leave your table. Anyone experiencing cold or flu like symptoms are asked to postpone your visit to the Lodge.Hopefully these will be temporary but nonetheless they are the guidelines we need to follow in order to be open and resume Lodge activities. 
Thank you all for you patience through all of this, for your understanding and for your continued support of La Junta Elks #701.(There will be a full list of all of the variances and guidelines available at the Lodge if you’d like to read them.)

Humbly your ER,Michael Perez
