An important message from Winter Haven Lodge No. 186


After hearing that Covid-19 (CoronaVirus) has entered the City limits of Winter Haven, the consideration for the health and well-being of our Masonic body and their families has taken center stage. Several of our officers and many of our craft have compromised health issues and will not be able to attend lodge meetings. Sadly, I am informing everyone that the March 21, 2020 and April 6, 2020 Stated Meetings of Winter Haven Lodge No. 186 are cancelled. Stay home, stay with your loved ones and stay well... we will all come out the better for this time away while our state heals.

The next scheduled Meeting is Saturday Morning, April 18th, 2020, 8:00am breakfast and 9:00am meeting, as long as the threat of illness passing between us is past. There will be emails, call-multiplier and other communication methods used to keep you informed of the events for that meeting.

An important message from Lake Wales Lodge No. 242

At Saturday's Stated Communication the craft of Lake Wales Lodge No. 242 voted to go dark until the first Stated Communication on May 9th, additionally all lodge functions including Masonic practices and the monthly fish fry dinners are CANCELLED and the Lake Wales Masonic Temple hereby is CLOSED to the lodge members and the public.

The decision for the lodge to go dark and to closed the Masonic temple was not taken lightly or without serious thought and consideration, because of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that is spreading not only here in the United States but also across the world I and the brothers of the lodge felt that this is best of course of action.

If you have have any questions please contact me at [email protected] or Lodge Secretary Greg Fisher at [email protected].
