IMPORTANT Lodge Update for March

Message from WM John Lohrfink:

Due to the anticipated spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) by both the CDC and Oregon Health Authority (OHA), I am cancelling all March Masonic Events at Medford Lodge #103 to include all degrees, the family dinner, and the Saturday breakfast. Monday coffee is left to your own discretion.  

 The risk of the virus still remains low, however most community leaders are practicing “social distancing” to include 1) not shaking hands with others, 2) cancelling large public meetings, and 3) being mindful to not be around those who have recently traveled out of the country or by air.  

 I am aware this may disappoint some, but my intent is for the greater good and to protect the safety, health, and welfare of our Brothers.  My intent is also to protect the long-term continuity of our Lodge operations. The risk of infection and potential death by COVID-19 is increased for those who are in the elderly population, those with underlying respiratory conditions, and those who have immunodeficiencies.  Many of our Brothers are seniors, so hopefully this temporary action will allow time for the virus to settle down.  Feel free to look at the OHA link below and E-mail me with any questions. 

 Respectfully,  WM John
