1 June 2020 -A Stated Meeting!

Brethren all, on 1 June at 7pm we are going to hold our first stated meeting since the mid-March communication. If you are reading this then you are invited to come share in the business of our lodge. There will not be any food served since such group events may be of concern and we do not want to take any unreasonable chances when it comes to the health of our members. Thank you for your patience and you help in regaining our Masonic momentum for the remainder of the year!

A Brother Steps Up During the Pandemic

A chef in Larne stepped up to provide “meals on wheels” to 100 elderly stuck at home during the pandemic. Click the link to read the story. Together with his wife Fiona and three staff, they have delivered over 4,200 individual meals to those unable to leave their homes.

“We believe in playing a key role in our communities and our meals-on-wheels business is central to that. Our community is like family and we do what we can within our power to help.”

Grand Master’s Edict on Coronavirus

Brethren and Friends, we are in unfamiliar times to most of us and while the City, State and National governments begin to make deliberate moves to slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are doing our part to help. The Grand Master MW Bob Peters has put forth his edict to suspend all Masonic activities until at least 30 April 2020, at which time there will be a reevaluation of conditions. We ask that you remain vigilant in your actions and behaviors as to always reflect great credit up you and your lodge as well as the Grand Jurisdiction of Masons of the state of Oklahoma. If you have any questions during this time, the Secretary is available by phone at the lodge and will gladly return all voicemail inquiries. Thank you again for your patience while we all get through this event together!
