Brothers and Friends,
On Tuesday morning, March 28 2017, there was a fire at the Marietta Masonic Temple, and the building suffered some damage. It was caused by an Arsonist, who set fire to the main door frames, but he has been caught and is currently incarcerated.
From all reports, structural damage is minimal however smoke can be smelled in every corner of the Lodge. Several interior doors were damaged due to the Fire Department having to enter locked rooms (Library, Museum, etc.) and will have to be replaced.
This means that the Marietta Masonic Temple building will be out of commission for a few weeks while the smoke as well as physical damage is repaired.
If you have keys or access to the building, the Worshipful Master and Trustees ask that you please refrain from entering the building at this time.
For the next Regular Communication of Kennesaw Lodge #33 on April 4, 2017, we are being graciously hosted by Nelms Lodge #323 at 455 Concord Road, Smyrna GA, 30082.
The annual Pancake Breakfast, scheduled for April 15, 2017 is being POSTPONED and a new date will be announced soon.
More information will be published soon regarding other meeting changes for all of the organizations who meet at the Marietta Masonic Temple (Kennesaw Lodge 33, Friendship Rainbow Assembly 16, OES Marietta Chapter 208, Cherokee Chapter 13 RAM, Marietta Council 74 R&SM and Constantine Commandery 26).
