Grand Lodge Office Staff to work from home beginning Friday, March 20th, 2020

Brethren,

Due to the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus throughout the State of Washington and in an attempt to help stop the spread of the virus, the Grand Master and the Grand Lodge Elected Officers have decided that the Grand Lodge office will be closed beginning Friday, March 20, 2020 until further notice. We will continue to work from home assisting the Brethren and Lodges.  However, this means that we will not be answering the phones at the Grand Lodge office and we will not be sending out orders for supplies and awards until further notice.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact either myself, Clayton LaVigne or Lynne Blaylock at either grandsecretary@freemason-wa.org; clayton@freemason-wa.org; or lynneb@freemason-wa.org.  Please be patient with the staff during these trying times.  We are all in this together and we will get through this together.  Remember that every human being has a claim on your kind offices. Please stay safe and healthy.

Fraternally,

Clint Brown

Grand Secretary
