The Covid-19 virus is touching us all in ways we could not even imagine just a week ago. Attached is a letter from the MWGM cancelling all meals and Masonic events save stated meetings (and limits on those). Note however despite dispensation to not have meetings, they must be made up if missed (if meeting 10 times a year).
In an effort not to makeup any missed meetings; I am announcing my intention to hold our stated meeting on April 6th with only the required 5 necessary officers. While I will not preclude anyone else from attending, I am strongly advising against it and will only be in session long enough to dispatch normal business and close the meeting. No new business will be addressed unless something of utmost urgency comes up between now and then.
Many of our Brothers fit the demographic of those hardest hit by this virus and urge everyone to follow the government guidelines and help minimize the spread of this illness.
The officers and members of Marion McDaniel Lodge No. 56 welcome you to Tucson and to The Duke's Lodge!
If your travels include the Tucson area, please consider visiting with us and enjoying our fraternal hospitality and friendship. We will do our best to make you feel most welcome.
Feel free to send an Email to our Secretary if you have any questions about our Lodge and our events.
