Well, this may be the last time you hear from me this year!

2021 is upon us. 2020 certainly provided its challenges. Challenges that will linger into the New Year, but at least there is a path to “normalcy”. This has been a year of being kept apart, which has actually brought us closer together. It may sound like a cliché, but this also extends to our Brothers in the Prince Hall Grand Lodge.

MW Walter C. King and a few of his Grand Line joined with me and a few members of our Grand Line at the Masonic Care New Rochelle for a joint New Years Message. You may like this better than some of my other messages. It is short and to the point. It is on NYMASONS.ORG as the Grand Masters Message

On behalf of myself, Nancy, our Deputy Grand Master RW Richard J. Kessler and Joanne, the entire elected and appointed members of the Grand Line and their ladies, your local District Deputies, Staff Officers, Assistant Grand Lecturers and their ladies, as well as the Worshipful Masters and officers of each lodge in our jurisdiction, we are all pleased to extend this greeting to you.

In addition, let us implore the Great Architect of the Universe to protect the members of our Armed Forces as they are protecting us, wherever in the world they may be serving as well as all our domestic First Responders, and our Brothers and Sisters all over the world. May He keep them safe and out of harm’s way so they can continue their important efforts and bring them home safely to their families and friends!

Sincerely and Fraternally,

William M. Sardone
Grand Master
