Emergency Message to the Craft – James E. Sullivan, Grand Master

Dear Brethren and members of the Masonic Family,

As we prepare to weather the storm, our thoughts and prayers
are with all our Brothers and their families and neighbors. We want you to
know that in this emergency, your Grand Lodge, stands ready to assist
Brothers and their families who are adversely impacted by this potential
disaster and need for relief.

The old adage that actions speak louder than words rings very true when we as a Fraternity come face to face with such challenges as Nature has in store for us
today. You will remember that it seems like only yesterday that Hurricane
Irene came crashing through many of our villages and townships. We heard
your cries for help and we, your Grand Lodge together with the assistance
of many of our Lodges and Districts, answered that call by providing
immediate and much needed clothing, supplies and financial help.

Rest assured that your Grand Lodge and your fellow Brothers
stand ready again to offer a helping hand today, should the need arise. In
the unfortunate event that you or a member of your family should find
themselves in need of our assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us
at the following points of contact:

R.W. Wesley C. Powell, Chairman

Grand Lodge Committee on Masonic Benevolence

Res. (631) 691-7367

E-mail: salwes@optonline.net

Office of the Grand Secretary

Telephone: (212) 337-6644

E-mail: NYSGrandSecy@aol.com

In the meantime, both Gail and I join together with the
entire Grand Line in keeping each of you in our prayers. We ask that the
Great Architect continue to hold you in the palm of His hand and to
protect you and your loved-ones from all harm. God
bless and keep you this day and always.


James E. Sullivan, Grand Master
