Since area majority of our membership fits the “most vulnerable” category our members are encouraged to stay home in self isolation or as it is called “Social distancing”. This lowers your chance of contracting the virus (or spreading the virus to someone else) but there are times one does need to leave their hones for some reason or another.
Some People are tying scarves round their face or fashioning masks out of old neckerchiefs while others have scored an cotton surgical type masks. Some people wish ti be more creative and bring sine personality to their personal protective equipment.
Many Masons as we know like to display their membership on the clothing they as they mingle with others in the profane wold. Most of the time by wearing a Masonic ball cap or a Masonic T-shirt Now those Brethren can have a mask that shows the world they are a Mason!
