IN MEMORIAM- Right Worshipful Brother Fred F. Griffin

It is with sadness that we announce the death of

New England Brotherhood Night

  New England Brotherhood Night is an opportunity for masonic brothers from throughout New England to meet, make new friends, see old friends, exchange stories, share ideas, and sometimes even arrange an inter-jurisdictional visit or two! The evening is open to all Master Masons, and starts with a cocktail hour, followed by dinner, and finally wrapping up with a program.

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014
Cocktail Hour 5pm - Southern Barbecue Dinner 6pm - Program 7pm
Woodstock Academy - 57 Academy Rd, Woodstock, CT 06281

  This event rotates throughout the six New England states, so each state only has the opportunity to host this event once every six years. “Next year’s” host state provides the program for “this year”. Past programs have included Hollywood writers, the men who planned and commanded the Osama Bin Laden raid, and the captain of the Coast Guard cutter who sailed out into the “Perfect Storm” attempting to rescue the Andrea Gail.

  Proper attire is a jacket and tie. This is not an open meeting, so aprons and jewels are unnecessary. Reservations and payment must be made through the Grand Secretary’s office.  RSVP Deadline:  March 14th

Storm Cancellations

A Worshipful Master should advise his District Deputy if he considers travelling conditions unsafe. With the District Deputy's approval, the lodge may cancel its Stated Communication. This decision is to be made only on the day of the Stated Communication, and not in advance of any forecast storm event. If a lodge can't get in touch with their Deputy, the Worshipful Master may contact me.

The Deputy's approval and the subsequent cancellation should be noted to the Grand Master. It would be a good idea that the lodge communicates this on either their website, Call 'em All, or some other public means, like Facebook.

This procedure is to be followed for the rest of my term.
