I believe it is in the best interest of the craft in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic that I make the following announcements:

The stated communication for Hiram Lodge #4 on March 26th has been cancelled. I have informed the Grand Lodge and District 20 of this action. Please make an effort to inform the brethren who may not have Facebook. There will also be an announcement on the website.

Furthermore, due to the CDC recommendation that gatherings of 50 people or more be postponed for at least 8 weeks, the annual Pancake Breakfast at the VFW will be postponed to a later date in the year. The Secretary and Treasurer will make efforts to return donations and we will evaluate substitute dates when more information becomes available.

We are living in unprecedented times. But I ask each of you to remember your obligation and look out for your fellow brothers and citizens at large. Let your light continue to shine in these times. Keep calm, practice social distancing, maintain good hygiene, and invoke the aid of Deity to help us, our neighbors, and our leaders during this time.

Fraternally Thine,
Alex Fitzgerald
Hiram Lodge #4
