The Cornerstone Ceremony will begin promptly at 9 AM. Elected and Appointed officers (or anyone filling in for you or participating in the ceremony) should wear tux, white gloves, apron and collar.

The roll of the workmen has been called and another has not answered to his name. It is with a deep sadness that I report the passing of VW Brother Mark Okusko, District Deputy of the Grand Master for District No. 30, to that Celestial Lodge not made with hands. His toils here have ceased, but his memory is not forgotten. VW Brother Mark was a member and Past Master of Newport Lodge No. 144. He was installed on June 9, 2018 as District Deputy of the Grand Master for District No. 30 and was also the current Secretary and Treasurer of Newport Lodge. We do not have any information regarding funeral arrangements, at this time. Please keep his wife and family in your thoughts and prayers
It has been brought to the Grand Lodge Office attention there is a FRAUDULENT EMAIL coming from Sam Roberts, Grand Secretary. It is circulating today and stating the Grand Master is requesting $5,000.00 for an accident that occurred this morning.
PLEASE DISREGARD AND DO NOT SEND MONEY. THIS IS A FRAUDULENT EMAIL.
