Greetings Sir Knights,
We are still following Article 12 issued by the Grand Master of the Grand Encampment. There has been no updates when this may change. I will post any changes by means of Findlay Masonic Body web and Facebook page, group text, or by personal contact.
Here’s a couple of dates to keep in mind if things change. Dec. 9 2020 is Full Form Opening review conducted at a stated meeting. Jan. 30, 2021 Order of the Temple inspection.
