My brothers, as we enter month two of our lockdown protocols, I wanted to take this moment to remind you we are still meeting (Shhhhhhh it’s a secret) online for a social hour every other week. The Email announcements go out the day of the meeting with a link to the event embedded in. If you are missing the comradery or fellowship that going to the lodge affords, I assure you it is still there online.
The Grand Master has extended our shutdown until June 1st, he has also canceled Grand Lodge for the first time since World War II. However, we are STILL here in support of you, if you need help reach out to us. If you need someone to run errands for you or grocery shop for you reach out. If you are in distress and need help reach out, we are still here, and we are helping as much as we can.
The lodge has investigated having custom face masks made for two reasons, the first to protect our members when we are able to return. The second to donate to the masonic home because they are in dire need of them. More on this venture as my officer line gives input on what direction they feel we should head.
I am looking forward to seeing you Tuesday May 5th for our Virtual Social Gathering at 6:30. If you want to join but cannot make 6:30 join when you can, these run typically about an hour and a half. If you need help signing up call, email, or text me and I will come mask and all and walk you through the process.
Yours in service,
W:. Roland Yates
