Christmas Message from the Grand Master

Greetings:
Lynn and I would like to wish each of you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas.  I hope you have enjoyed this Masonic year as much as I have.  It has been a joy to visit with so many of you and witness the great work you are doing for our Craft.
Let us not forget our brothers who are away from home serving our great country during these trying times, our elderly and widows.
I am looking forward to our 200th Grand Lodge in March and hope to see many of you there.  I believe this is going to be a great year for Masonry in Mississippi.  I hope you are as pumped about our celebration in July in Natchez, MS as I am.  Our planning committee is doing a great job and have a good program set up for us.  Let’s get behind them and give them the support they need to complete this task.
Thanks for all you do!
Don Bryant
Grand Master 2017

MM and WM of the Year Nominations

rhodese_GM_2016Brethren, MWGM Eddie Rhodes has extended the deadline for nominations for WM and Mason of the year until February 16, 2017.

Brethren, these two awards are among the highest honors that Mississippi Masonry can award. Look to your Brothers. Among them are many good men, Masons who have labored long and hard in the quarries asking nothing in return.

Think of these good men that we emulate and consider which of them might be considered for these honors.

Let us give our Grand Master the assistance he requests, and help him honor our deserving Brothers. Send your nominations to the Grand Secretary as soon as possible.

Take due notice thereof and govern yourselves accordingly.
