ANNOUNCEMENTS

Brethren, St. Andrews Lodge has survived and will recovery stronger than ever. Our Lodge did have some roof damage as a result of Hurricane Michael, but we are working on repairs. However, many of our Brethren were not so fortunate and are in need of help. DDGM R∴W∴ Greg Wynot will be holding an emergency meeting for all Brothers who can attend at St. Andrews Lodge, 1104 Bayview Ave. (across the street from St. Andrews marina) on Tuesday, October 23 at 12:00 pm. A relief truck will be there with supplies to help those Brothers in need. If you have supplies that you want to donate, please bring them on Tuesday.


Also, as a result of the damage caused by Hurricane Michael, our Grand Master, M∴W∴ John E, Karroum has issued Directive #5 which states:

In consequence of the devastation of Hurricane Michael, as Grand Master, I hereby ORDER AND DIRECT that Lodges affected by the hurricane do not hold Stated or Called Communications in a Lodge Building that is deemed an unsafe structure. The safety of our Brothers shall be the priority. If you are not able to hold Communications in your Lodge Building you are to notify the Deputy Grand Master in your respective Districts and the Grand Secretary. This Directive shall also apply to holding Elections of Lodge Officers. If you cannot hold the 2019 Elections of Lodge Officers at the first Stated Communication in December in accordance with the Digest of the Masonic Law of Florida you will be required to request a Dispensation to hold a special election once you are able.


Brethren, remember to sign up for Circumscribe, the new web based membership tool on the Grand Lodge of Florida website. This site allows you to pay your dues, edit your profile, and access your Masonic record online. Instructions for how to register for your Circumscribe account can be found here.
