Message from the Grand Master

Freemason Thin Blue LineBrethren it is with a heavy heart that I write this message today. Brethren
our law enforcement officers are being killed and under attack and there is
no out cry from our leaders.

I am asking that the Mason’s of Mississippi show the public that we are good
men, by showing public support for our local law enforcement. And be in
prayer for our men and women in blue.

-Edward Rhodes, GM
