Grand Lodge 
22 May 2020 Re: Holding lodge meetings in June. 
Dear Sir and Brother, In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Grand Master, MW Bro. Douglas Franklin, has issued a blanket dispensation to all lodges allowing them to cancel all meetings and to defer elections and installations until September. Trusting in the judgement of the brethren, he has not issued a ruling to prohibit meetings but expects lodges to use common sense, be sensitive to the concerns of their members, and to follow the rules and guidelines issued by the Provincial Health Officer and other health officials regarding masks, distancing and assemblies. Although meetings are not prohibited, Grand Lodge does not believe that any lodge has a need to meet until September. Brethren are encouraged to take this time to mentor their candidates and provide education, talk to each other, and meditate on the lessons of Freemasonry. If your lodge still believes that it has to have a meeting, clear guidelines regarding physical distancing and hygiene must be established and provided to all attending members. As long as the Provincial Health Officer continues to promote physical distancing, keep in mind that you cannot pass the word in opening and closing the lodge or taking the gavel, hold a candidate’s arm in conducting him through the ceremony, communicate the secrets, raise a candidate, communicate the grip and word, or otherwise come in contact with each other. Members and officers cannot be summoned or required to attend a meeting, but only invited. Yours sincerely and fraternally,
George Moore
Grand Secretary

Quote of the Day January 23,2018 

Quote of the Day June 24,2016
"When government takes away citizens' right to bear arms
it becomes the citizens' duty to take away government's right to govern."
- M WBro George Washington


Quote of the Day June 17,2016
"The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. ​The balance of power is the scale of peace​. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; ​but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside​. And while a single nation refuses to lay them down, it is proper that all should keep them up. Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them." —Thomas Paine (1775)

Quote of the Day February 18,2015
"Government's view of the environment could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it changes, tax it. If it keeps changing, regulate it. And if it stops changing, keep saying it's still changing." -Ronald Reagan
