In these uncertain and trying times it is important that we, as Masons, remember our obligation to one another and be ready to help, aid and assist each other where and when possible. Please consider reaching out via phone, email or text to your Lodge brothers in order to keep our fraternal bonds strong!
Also, this is a good time to brush up on your ritual work and perhaps even add a charge or lecture to your arsenal.
Finally, please let the SMMA officers know if you are in need of anything.
