Dear Sisters and Brothers:

Due to the ongoing concerns with the Corona Virus, today’s actions by the Governor, and the recommendations from the Health Department, I am ordering that all Eastern Star events and meetings be suspended until the end of April. Ron and I want to keep all of our Sisters and Brothers safe during this time. We are available to you by telephone or email if you need anything.

Fraternally,

Denise L. Shippee, W.G.M.

Ronald D. Ayers, W.G.P.
