Dear M.E. Companions & Companions:
Please see attached letter form the RWGM and the emails copied below.
I will stress the RWGM’s words, emphasis added:
“I am directing any and all lodge activities be canceled, including, but not limited to: extra, special and/or stated lodge meetings; social functions; schools of instruction, etc., as well as youth group and community meetings/events that may be scheduled in your lodge building.”
Further, from communications with the CEO of the Masonic Villages:
“There can be no meetings on our campuses until further notice. I suggest that the message was also clear that Masonic functions in buildings controlled by Blue Lodges (directly or through Hall Associations) are canceled, and this would include appendant body activities.”
Therefore, please understand that this also absolutely applies to all appendant orders meeting in Masonic buildings under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of PA.
DDGHP’s: Please distribute this email and letter to the Secretaries of your Chapters for distribution to their members. If this letter has already been distributed and seriously regarded, then it does not need to be redistributed. But, this direction from the RWGM needs to be seriously regarded as such.
Sincerely & Fraternally,
George R Haynes
M.E. Grand Secretary
