Members & Friends,
There has been a few inquiries about the re-opening of the Alano Club of Joliet, and with the Governor’s new “Restore Illinois” 5-Phase Plan, this is a note to keep you updated.
For clarification, we are still closed until our Region / sub-region [Northeast / 7] is moved into ‘Phase 3’ by State directive, and even then it will be a ‘limited’ re-opening.
[according to current Phase 3 guidelines, and/or unless the State ‘upgrades’ the Phases, giving us wider latitude].
It is still early in the month, with much uncertainty & many mixed messages – and as the official document states, “This is an initial framework that will likely be updated as research and science develop and as the potential for treatments or vaccines is realized.”
So it will probably be a few more weeks before a somewhat clearer picture emerges, and as soon as we know, we’ll let you know.
For ACJ, our first concern, as always, will be doing all that is necessary to ensure the safety of all who come to the Club when we do re-open,
and as importantly, to follow all the State guidelines & directives in re-opening that apply to ACJ when that time, hopefully soon, comes.
Thank you for your sober & serene patience, as we all join Family, Friends, and all others in our Community – in overcoming this Challenge.
On behalf of the ACJ Board of Directors,
Jay W., President
