Dear Brethren:

Please watch this short video about the closing of the Supreme Council offices, and what we will strive to do to keep in touch with you. As always, our fraternity is the best there is, and, counting on and helping each other is now more important than ever.

Fraternally and most sincerely,

David A Glattly, 33°
