From The East – April 2020
Brethren and ladies of Mizpah 302,
I hope this message finds you well, we are in the midst of dealing with an unprecedented crisis from multiple angles. I am confident in our brotherhood’s solidarity, ingenuity, and compassion due to the response our officers and brothers have had and will have as time goes on.
All physical meetings and events for March and April have been canceled at this time due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The safety and security of our widows and members are our top priority and we proudly accept this challenge. If you know of anyone or their families that can use our assistance please let us know, it is and should be our greatest joy to be helpful in times like this. Lodge operations have adopted a virtual meeting style at the recommendation of our brothers and the grand lodge.
A lamentable side effect of the current market downturn has led us to slash our expenditures at the lodge as well. It is all part of good stewardship and the lodge is secure, we’re just being as cautious as we are taught to be during such days.
If you want to know how you can be active in our efforts to assist those in need please reach out to me or any of our officers.
Sincerely & Fraternally
Thomas A. Gibbs
