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!
