GHRL June News
While we should be outside doing a lot of normal things, like enjoying the sunshine and the season of Spring and the forthcoming of Summer, the majority of Pennsylvanians and many in other States, are under stay at home instructions from the government. The Coronavirus has really taken its toll on all. Hopefully, by the time the magazine is published, the Country will be moving towards better circumstances.
A lot of cancellations of social activities had to be made due to COVID-19—hopefully some will be able to rescheduled in the fall. A lot of people were disappointed that events were canceled, but we have to be very cautious and protect everyone during this time. Remember Stay Safe; Stay Home and Stay Healthy!
In the middle of March, the GHRL bowling season came to an abrupt end. With five weeks left to finish out the season. Congratulations to the Cents team—Charlotte, Bob, Anne and Carol for taking first place for the year. Awards have been mailed to all the bowlers and hopefully bowlers will be back in the fall for another great season.
The April fund raiser for Church Matching Funds was a huge success, thanks to all who sold the calendars for this event. A check was presented to Fr. Jerome Wolbert, OFM of the Holy Dormition Monastery in the amount of $3,076.00. The June fundraiser is being held and the results have been pretty great so far. More details will follow in the next GCU Magazine.
The lodge would like to salute all high school and college graduates. School was cut short for the year, but be proud of who you are and what you have accomplished during your years in school.
Remember Father's Day is Sunday, June 21, please keep them in your prayers and thoughts—they are always there to lend a helping hand in time of need.
Hopefully all will be able to celebrate the nation's 244th birthday on July 4th, with a group of people. Make it a special day to honor the great country that we live in.
Keep in your prayers and thoughts all those who have been devastated (both living and deceased) by the COVID-19 virus, hopefully everyone will come out of this pandemic soon. If your church is open for prayer, stop by and take the time out to say a prayer for all those affected and especially all the EMT's, nurses, doctors and all healthcare professionals. May God Bless us all!
I know it was a rough time during the Easter season this year, but hopefully all GCU members had a very Blessed and Happy Easter.
