Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic the Grand Master has mandated that all Lodge functions cease until further notice.
This includes memorial services, social events as well as regular Lodge meetings.
This is widely accepted as a wise act to reduce "close" assemblies and contact and limit possible exposure to this virus.
The District seemed to be gaining momentum over the winter months as we saw increased inter-lodge visiting as well as an increased number of initiations. It is hoped this positive trend will not be lost once the ban is lifted!!!!. This is a great time to brush up our work!!!

We regret to inform that the Camp Trillium appreciation dinner is cancelled due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID -19) crisis.
The camp indicated that due to the weakened immune systems of children attending camp this is the wisest route to take.
Camp Trillium is a recreational camp for children with cancer and their parents and does not receive any provincial funding for its day to day operations.
The annual dinner raises approx. $ 3500.00 each year towards camp operations.
We respectfully ask each Lodge in our District to consider making a donation towards this worthy and district project and it is our hope we can still raise a sum equal to previous years.
Please make check out to: Camp Trillium - Rainbow Lake and enter MFO Project Number # 2584 on the memo line. Cheques can be forwarded to our D.D.G.M.: R.W. Bro. Michael J. Segui at: 58 Vansittart Avenue, Woodstock, Ontario. N4S 6E4
