The most important news is that we are able to meet again. Please see Directive No. 1 from the new Grand Master below:
May 29, 2020
To: All Particular Lodges and Members of The Grand Lodge of Florida
The Governor of Florida has lifted the stay at home orders and other restrictions that were set forth due to the coronavirus pandemic. As Grand Master, I hereby ORDER AND DIRECT that effective on June 1, 2020, all Lodges may open and continue with Lodge activities.
All Lodges will be able to resume normal Lodge Meetings and events such as, but not limited to, all Masonic Education/Masonic Leadership Training Classes, Secretaries and Treasurers Seminars, Child ID Events, Social Gatherings, all Allied and Appendant Orders and Masonic Youth Groups that meet in any Lodge buildings, and Lodge building rentals.
We encourage all Lodges to follow the health and safety guidelines as set forth by the Center for Disease Control. All Lodges must have a hand sanitizing station at the front door of the Lodge Building for Brothers to use upon entering. If Brothers wish to wear gloves and masks they may do so but this is not a mandatory requirement and the Brothers must provide their own personal protective equipment.
Please continue to practice “social distancing” and following the guidelines that have been set by the Center for Diseases Control. Use common sense and your best judgement. If you are sick, have a fever, or just don’t feel good please do not come to Lodge.
It shall be the call of the Worshipful Master to go dark for the summer months and a vote of the Lodge is not needed; however, proper notification must be made to the membership and also to the Grand Secretary.
Take due notice and govern yourselves accordingly.
CAN ASSIST YOU WITH THE HAND SANITIZER IF SO NEEDED
