DIRECTIVE NO. 13
To: The All Particular Lodges
It has been brought to my attention that the CDC guidelines of taking the temperature of all attendees upon entering events such as our Lodge Meetings and social events are not being followed. It is of the utmost importance that we continue to use this simple precaution of taking one’s temperature before they enter our events. It is the first line of defense to protect us from spreading COVID-19. Therefore, as Grand Master of Masons of Florida, I hereby ORDER AND DIRECT that at every Masonic event that assembles in any form a temperature reading shall be taken on every person that enters the event. Anyone with a temperature of 100 degrees or greater will not be allowed to enter the event. All other CDC guidelines will continue to be enforced throughout the Jurisdiction of Florida; including hand sanitation stations being required; masks being required by all attendees; and social distancing will be enforced in addition to taking the temperature of all attendees.
Take due notice and govern yourselves accordingly.
Sincerely and fraternally,
Thomas L. Turlington, Jr.
The lodge phone number is 813-689-4221
Our address is 203 N. Moon Ave Brandon FL, 33510 we are located at the corner of W Morgan St. and N Moon Ave. in the heart of Brandon.

Welcome to Brandon Lodge No. 114
Freemasonry is the oldest, largest and most widely recognized fraternal organization in the World. Founded in London, England in 1717, its current worldwide membership totals 3.6 million members, 1.6 million of which are in North America. Most are men who go about their jobs and professions with no hint they are Freemasons except for the way they lead their lives. Many are readily recognizable by name, face, or accomplishment. George Washington and thirteen other Presidents, eight Vice Presidents and forty-two Justices of the Supreme Court have been Masons.
Brandon Lodge meets at 7:30 PM on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. If you would like to learn more about the Masonic Fraternity, we invite you to stop by on a Thursday night at 6:30 pm to chat!
