Greeting Brothers, the time of darkness in Lodge has come to an end as we look forward to the rest of the year. I hope all is well with the brothers and their families - I’ve been trying to keep in touch with everyone via phone calls and all news has been good. Per Most Worshipful Louis Castle’s edict number 6, I have taken a vote from the Lodge officers with the consensus that the health and well-being of our members come first - so with that being said cancellation of our stated meeting has been agreed upon by all members and myself.
I ask at this time that the Lodge look upon thinking outside the box on how we may come up with things that we can do to help our Lodge and our community and be safe at the same time. Your input on this matter is highly valuable during this unprecedented time due to the pandemic.
The status of our Official Visit for Most Worshipful Castle has not been rescheduled at this time. I will be making contact with Most Worshipful Castle to get an idea on when or how this can take place. I am working with the powers to be to set up a non-official zoom meeting for Benjamin Franklin Lodge and hopefully we can share our experiences of pandemic and fellowship next month.
I received a letter from Most Worshipful Wayne Kingsley from our brothers in the south thanking us for our work and contributions for the food bank drive that Master Masons Association of Northern Nevada MMANN put together. I would also like to thank all the brothers that participated as it has been privilege to work with the brothers to put our ideas into action for the betterment of Masonry and our community. Remember my brothers, all challenges can be overcome when Masons come together - there is Power in Numbers. Be good Masons and may God bless us all. Looking forward to seeing all the brothers in the future.
Worshipful Master Randy Subia
