Brethren of the 42nd Masonic District,

I have just received information from the Grand Secretaries Office that a directive will be sent out this afternoon cancelling ALL Masonic events effective immediately. This will include stated meetings, anniversaries, seminars, etc. This step is being taken out an abundance of caution in response to the COVID-19 virus and to prevent unnecessary exposure for any of our members. This is an evolving situation and as soon as I receive any further information or directions, I will get them out to the membership ASAP. Please keep an eye on the District Facebook page for updates as I receive them.
