A Message To The Brethren 05/27/2020:

Earlier, I spoke to the M∴ W∴ William M. Sardone, Grand Master of Masons in the State of New York.  We were on a Zoom TeleConference with members of the District Line and other Lodge Masters in the Southern Tier District.

On the state level, M∴ W∴ William M. Sardone has issued an edict that all Masonic Lodges in the State remain closed until June 06th, 2020. Further, the Grand Master assured everyone on the call that he is in contact with many Past Grand Masters and is preparing for the worst case scenario while, at the same time - hoping that it will not be necessary to activate those plans. I think this is prudent and I support his efforts.

All local Lodge Officers have been asked to remain in place until such time that it is safe to hold Lodge meetings again - and a dispensation can for Special Elections will be granted.  Lodge Masters were also given instructions on how to deal and process petitions as they come in during the pandemic. 

Round Hill will continue to hold Officers Meetings and Lodge Meetings via TeleConference. You should already be on the list of members who receive invitations to those events. If not, Please email me at and I will send you an invitation as soon as your membership can be validated. Along those lines, I commend EVERYONE who has been working together regularly to ensure the safety of our older members in the Triple Cities area. I am also starting to organize our next second degree for our current initiate. At this point, I expect to hold that degree sometime in September providing the current restrictions are relaxed by then and the "New Normal" begins to take shape. Also, I will continue to communicate with all of you regularly using our text system and email list.

Last night, R.·. W.·. Nick Glassman and I, along with several other Brothers belonging to the Lodges of the Southern Tier Masonic District donated food and money to 10 local food pantries this week as part of a statewide effort by the Grand Lodge of New York to assist local providers in caring for area residents impacted by the COVID crisis.  We delivered approximately $3000 worth of food and other donations to the following:

  • St. Patrick’s in Binghamton
  • Mother Teresa’s Cupboard in Endicott
  • All Saints Food Pantry in Johnson City
  • Windsor, Oxford, Norwich, Sherburne, Deposit, Greene and Bainbridge area food pantries as well.

Finally, "Thank you" to those Brothers who have remained solid members of our great fraternity by staying flexible and stepping up to help those who are in need. This is what Freemasonry is all about.
