*** Urgent Alert *** Tropical Storm Ian

On September 23rd, Governor Ron DeSantis declared a statewide State of Emergency in anticipation of Tropical Storm Ian which is expected to make landfall in Florida on Wednesday September 28th as a Category 3 or 4 Hurricane. If Ian does rear its ugly face here it is very likely that our Grand Master will order lodges in the affected Masonic Districts to be closed for the duration of the storm with all Communications including Stated and Called as well as degree work and lodge events cancelled.

We're currently monitoring and tracking Ian and in consultation with R:.W:. Gary Gordon our District Deputy Grand Master and the staff at Grand Lodge in Jacksonville we'll keep you apprised of any forthcoming urgent announcements, notices and/or changes that occur in the days ahead.

If you have any further questions please email me at

Bro. Rick Schwarz, IT Administrator and Social Media Manager, 21st Masonic District
