Hello Members and Friends:
Please be advised that all Lodge-based activities and rentals have been CANCELLED until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
We have established a COVID-19 committee that meets regularly to monitor the situation and to work on developing a protocol based on the latest Provincial Government standards and information. This may allow us to offer some access to activities and events in the near future.
This website will be updated when specific activities resume. Please check back periodically for new information.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Update July 10/20 -
The Eidsvold Walking Club has resumed outdoor activities. Ten walkers came out on Saturday, July 4th for a walk in Oak Bay. This was our first walk since COVID shut us down in March. We all enjoyed the weather, the views and the friendship. Following the walk we had a nice picnic in Windsor Park. They will again meet on the first Saturday of the month. Next walk will be August 1st.
The Annual Corn Roast normally held in August has been cancelled.
Eidsvold Bursaries - Due to the financial pressure that the pandemic has placed on our lodge, we are regretfully suspending this program for 2020. There are still a number of grants and bursaries available through the Sons of Norway Foundation in Canada. The deadline for applications is August 31, 2020.
