The Englewood Chamber of Commerce still has free face masks available for anyone who needs one.

They are made of cloth and are washable. The masks are courtesy of the Englewood Fire Department and the Department of Health and Human Services.

The masks are individually packaged. If you need more than one, don’t hesitate to ask. Depending on demand and remaining quantities, it might be possible for a business to receive a larger number of masks for their employees.

Putt-Putt slots filling up

With only 60 available spots for this year’s Englewood Beach Putt-Putt tournament on Aug. 15, a sell-out is expected much sooner than previous years. The theme for 2020 is “Red, White and Blue.” (You might be able to find left-over July 4th gear at a discount!)

This year’s event will look very different from those in the past. Most notably, there will be fewer teams (60), meaning fewer people participating. There are 11 venues this year, instead of nine, to help control the flow of people to comply with CDC guidelines.

Things you need to know:

• Trolleys will not be available.

• No wrap-up party.

• Each participant must complete a waiver and healthcare screening questionnaire.

• Each participant must agree to a contactless temperature check.

• Each team will be given face masks to encourage safety

The entry fee for a four-person team is $80, a reduction from previous years. Register at www.EnglewoodBeach9.com.

Virtual advertising

Networking lunch

LaStanza Ristorante, 285 W. Dearborn St., is the location of our July 16 networking lunch. Reservations must be made online. The management of La Stanza will see to it that the CDC recommendations for restaurant operations are followed. We request that anyone who is not feeling 100% well, please don’t attend. If the $15 fee was paid, we will gladly process a refund.

Each attendee is required to acknowledge that they have not recently returned from a trip from a quarantined/restricted area and that they have not had close personal contact with another person who is currently positive for COVID.

Each attendee will be subjected to a contactless temperature check. Anyone with a temperature 100.4 or greater will not be permitted inside.

Hand sanitizer will be provided at the check-in desk. Masks will be provided for anyone who wants one
