Latest from the Worshipful Master
Updated: June 15, 2020
It has been a difficult time for our state, country and fraternity, and our Leaders have been tested sorely. Despite the pandemic threat of COVID-19 still lurking, we cannot give in to fear & let it immobilize us. Please continue to keep the Grandmaster and all of the Grand Officers in your prayers – they need your support now more than ever as they make the tough, yet needed, decisions to help guide our Fraternity in Georgia.
Our Grandmaster has authorized our Lodges to open in a limited fashion, and we will resume our regular communications on Tuesday, June 16 at 7pm. There are new guidelines within the Grandmaster’s ruling in which he has laid out how our communications are to be held. The details within the ruling are done with the utmost care & concern in mind for you and your family’s health, and we will comply with his ruling.
I noted on the most recent Calling Post call to the Brethren that we have had to cancel our Fundraisers (The BBQ & the Pancake Breakfast) due to the requirements within the new ruling. With that in mind, we will be sending out an appeal to all of you Brethren to assist in our Charity efforts this year. So I ask that you read the letter from our Secretary, and contribute so that the Lodge can Charitably support the many good works we are sponsoring this year.
We have lost several of our immediate Masonic family recently, notably Blanche Lovinggood. I ask that each of you continue to reach out and let me know when we need prayers or assistance, Brothers. We live in such tumultous times, we should all seek and find solace and guidance from God. Please continue to keep those you know about, as well as those you do not, upon bended knee in prayer.
Finally, keep an eye on the Trestle Board & Lodge calendar on the Website. I will continue to update it with the latest plans for the Lodge, as well as any upcoming needs.
Stay safe, healthy and well Brethren.
Jay Finch, Worshipful Master
